Campus Threat Assessment and Management Teams: What Risk Managers Need to Know Now

University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) Journal Article Reprint, Nolan, J., Randazzo, M. and Deisinger, G. , 2011

After the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007, many colleges and universities recognized that having threat assessment and management (TAM) teams in place to address potentially threatening behavior and situations among faculty, staff, and students on campus was a best practice. This article focuses on three main aspects of TAM teams on college campuses and what risk managers can do to encourage the success and effectiveness of those teams. The article discusses the legal duties that colleges and universities have in connection with violent incidents on campus. It also focuses on the development of a TAM process, the common challenges facing TAM team members, and how risk managers can help mitigate and minimize campus risks by assisting TAM teams.
