Guide for Managing Disruptive or Distressed Behavior

UT Dallas classroom

As a member of the UT Dallas community, you may be the first one to notice a student exhibiting distress or disruptive behavior. The student does not need to be violating any University rules or regulations for you to be concerned. Please contact us and we can begin a dialogue with the student and provide referrals. Allegations of student conduct violations are to be referred to the Dean of Students.

The Behavior Assessment and Intervention Team (BAIT) reviews behavioral incidents and ensures a systematic response to students whose behavior may be disruptive or harmful to themselves or the UT Dallas community, and assists in promoting the health, safety and welfare of students and other members of the UT Dallas community. Guidelines on Managing Difficult Student Behavior are available for faculty and staff.

Under the purview of the Dean of Students, the Judicial Affairs Officer investigates allegations of academic dishonesty.
