CARE/BIT Team

We at North Lake College care about our students’ success, not only academically, but emotionally and physically. Because of our commitment, we provide a number of departments and services across campus that respond to our students’ unique needs. 

Occasionally, students do not ask for help when they need it. In an effort to identify those students proactively, we have created a network of professionals from across campus that are committed to a caring, confidential program of identification, intervention, and response in order to provide our students with the greatest chance of success and our community with the greatest level of protection.

If an individual is in immediate danger, please call 911 and the North Lake College Police Department at 972-860-4290.
