All members of the OTC community are encouraged to utilitze the resources of OTCCares by submitting an OTCCares report when a student or employee exhibits concerning behavior or is experiencing a challenging life event. Examples of these behaviors or life events may include but are not limited to: homelessness, hunger, traumatic event(s), domestic/dating violence, pregnancy, mental health struggles, harassment, discrimination, death of an immediate family member, financial catastrophe. OTCCares makes it easy to report through a simple, confidential electronic reporting system. The BIT is the most prominent OTCCares resource and is comprised of individuals representing multiple departments and divisions throughout the OTC college system. The BIT exists to provide professional threat analysis, comprehensive behavioral intervention, and aid in upholding the OTC Student Code of Conduct.
