Our Purpose

The Lakeland Intervention Team strives to support our students' mental, emotional, and physical health, well-being, and academic success through regular meetings. LIT is designed to identify at-risk behaviors through threat assessment, assess needs, provide purposeful interventions, and create support plans for students exhibiting concerning or disruptive behaviors.

The LIT's process is also designed to provide all Lakeland University community members who have student behavior concerns with 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 referral recommendation options for the student and provide follow-up support as needed.

Reporting an Active Threat

Although encountering an active threat on campus remains a possibility, we encourage campus community members to review these guidelines in the event of an emergency. An active threat refers to any incident that creates an immediate threat or presents an imminent danger to the campus community, such as a shooter or a hostage situation. Taking the time to review these guidelines increases your ability to respond in an emergency. Please refer to the Campus Safety webpage for more information, or to report a threat, please contact Campus Safety at 920-565-1126.


All information shared with the Lakeland Intervention Team will be kept in the strictest confidence. The web-based reporting system connects to a confidential database. The form will ask for your name, but you may also report anonymously. If you provide your name and email, you may be contacted for more information.
