Threat Assessment Team

Threat Assessment Team

A threat is defined as an expression of intent to do harm or act out violently against someone or something (including self). A threat can be spoken, written, or symbolic.

Not all threats, nor those that threaten, are equal in their potential for harm, but all threats that are brought to the attention of the university will be taken seriously, evaluated, and documented.
