Through regular meetings, the Lakeland Intervention Team strives to support our student’s mental, emotional and physical health and well-being, as well as their academic success. LIT is designed to identify threats and at-risk behaviors, assess needs, provide purposeful interventions and create support plans for students who are exhibiting concerning or disruptive behaviors. The LIT’s process is also designed to provide all Lakeland University community members who have concerns regarding students’ behavior an easily-accessible tool to make appropriate campus officials aware of those concerns. Following a referral, the LIT members will work to identify specific resources and/or referral recommendation options to the student and provide follow-up support as needed.


Incidents or concerns may be reported directly to the Chair of the team, or to anyone else on the Intervention Team. A printable reporting form is available below for reference. When describing the concern or incident, please list all pertinent information such as location, room number, time of incident, members involved or any descriptive information of the individual if the name is not known. If the situation needs immediate attention, please report directly to your on duty R.A to assist you.

The team encourages members of the Lakeland University community to refer any community member when they witness or suspect behaviors or situations which are of concern and may cause harm to this individual or others. The following are a few examples of behaviors to report:


* Signs of depression and other mental health concerns
