Threat Assessment Team Mission
The mission of the Threat Assessment Team is to assist in the safety, health and welfare of the university community through a proactive, collaborative, coordinated, objective, and thoughtful approach to the prevention, identification, assessment, intervention and management of situations involving members of the university community that pose, or may reasonably pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of themselves and/or other members of the university community, or are of substantial disruption to university activities.

Threat Assessment Team Goals
The goals of the Threat Assessment Team are to advise and make recommendations on incidents involving members of the university community that pose, or may reasonably pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of themselves and/or other members of the university community through outreach and educational programming, consultation, and appropriate referrals.

Referrals to the Threat Assessment Team
It is the responsibility of the university community to report any situation that could possibly result in a threat to the safety and well-being of other members of the university community. Any member of the university community that may become aware of such a situation can report the matter to the Threat Assessment Team.

It is important to emphasize that reports to the Threat Assessment Team not be made anonymously because of the limitations to investigating without complete information. Please include, at a minimum, your name, phone number and email address.
