The UCI Consultation Team was first established over two decades ago by Thomas A. Parham, then director of the Counseling Center and later the campus’ Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, in response to a potential threat of violence. The gathering of representatives from across the campus proved useful in discussing the complex issues involved and a plan for intervention.
The Team functions as the campus’ Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) or threat assessment team. The Consultation Team brings together campus partners to review, discuss and manage a broad array of issues of concern to campus safety or well-being, involving students, faculty, staff and community members.
The purpose of the Consultation Team is to bring the collective wisdom, professional perspectives, campus management and agency responsibilities to bear on a crisis that, because of its reach, complexity, or potential for risk, demands the involvement of multiple campus departments.
