Behavioral Threat Assessments Teams

Behavioral threat assessments are a fact-based, investigative approach to determine how capable a person may be to carry out a threat of violence. These assessments are conducted by university Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams (BTAT) who are trained in conducting fact-based threat assessments and coordinating support services for persons exhibiting, or being affected by, behaviors of concern. The process from intake through assessment is standardized to the greatest extent possible in order to ensure a thorough, fair, and fact-based process for all persons involved.

A fact-based, behavioral threat assessment process considers warning behaviors in conjunction with known risk and protective factors, in to help determine a level of concern, which guides threat management actions.

All areas of the campus community are required to cooperate with requests from the Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams relative to successfully monitoring any threatening behavior.
