Purpose
The University of South Carolina Lancaster is concerned about the safety, health, and well-being of all of its students, faculty, and staff, and has policies regarding the well-being for all members of the University of South Carolina Lancaster community. Specifically, the policies address student activities that are disruptive to the mission of the University, as well as any suicidal or self injurious threats or behaviors.

As a result of growing national trends on college campuses of mental health issues and the increase in hospitalizations and deaths due to alcohol consumption, the University of South Carolina Lancaster created the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT).

    Behaviors include, but are not limited to, weapons on campus, significant inappropriate disruption to the community, threats of harm to others, potential for safety being compromised

  • Involuntary transportation to the hospital for alcohol and drug use/abuse.  Involuntary transportation may be provided by 911 first responders.
