Strategies of Behavioral Intervention (SOBI)

The SOBI policy at the Alamo Colleges District was created to guide our College community to recognize, prevent and respond to incidents that are disruptive, threatening, or violent.

Our Mission

To promote student, faculty, and staff success and campus safety by identifying individuals who demonstrate behaviors that may be early warning signs of possible disruptive or violent behavior and intervene at the earliest possible point.

Examples of behaviors include (but are not limited to):

  • signs of harassment
  • intimidation
  • extreme anxiety
  • depression
  • threatening harm
  • erratic behavior, or
  • disconnect from reality

SOBI Reporting

When in doubt, please report!

More often, faculty and staff will observe and report at-risk behaviors; however, students are encouraged to review the SOBI guidelines and report concerning behaviors to the SOBI response team.

The St. Philip’s College SOBI response team consists of the Vice President of Student Success, Dr. Mordecai I. Brownlee, along with campus counselors, disability specialists, campus security, Conduct Officer, faculty, and staff.
