What is Threat Assessment?

Threat assessment is a process designed to identify individuals of concern, investigate individuals and situations, and assess the information gathered.  If necessary, an intervention plan will be implemented to manage and/or monitor the person or situation.

  The Process of Threat Management:

  • Early identification of individuals at risk
  • Centralized reporting to the Threat Assessment Coordinator, University Police, or Student Intervention Team
  • Initial threat assessment to determine if an imminent danger or emergency exists
  • Investigate, gather Information, and make an assessment
  • Develop and implement an individualized intervention and management plan
  • Monitor and re-evaluate plan to effect safety
  • Refer and follow-up as appropriate
