Behavioral Threat Assessments Teams

The Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams (BTAT) establish a set of common sense behavioral thresholds and when the staff of the university is in possession of information that an individual has crossed one of these thresholds, university personnel respond with a combination of:

  • Face-to-face meetings between university professionals and individuals of concern.
  • Face-to-face fact-finding meetings with the individual(s) who initiated the report and/or witnesses.
  • Internal consultations among university professionals to assess and address the incident/situation.
  • Ad hoc meetings among university professionals to assess and address the incident/situation.
  • Policies and protocols designed to address the incident/situation.
  • Two monitoring and oversight teams that oversee the university’s response to these situations (Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams).

The Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams are formally titled as the Behavioral Threat Assessment Team for Students and Behavioral Threat Assessment Team for Employees.

The Campus Violence Prevention Committee (CVPC) provides oversight to each of the Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams (BTAT).
