Threat Assessment Teams for Troubled Students: Putting the Pieces Together

United Educators (UE)

Discussions with administrators and other staff at dozens of colleges and universities reveal that many practices are commonly used to help team members identify, intervene with, and manage distressed, disruptive, or potentially violent students. This document includes highlights from these discussions with deans of students, heads of counseling, campus law enforcement officers, legal counsel, risk managers, and officials involved with student discipline and student medicine. These personnel offered practical suggestions and reflections in four areas critical to the success of an institution’s student threat assessment team: forming a threat assessment team, reporting student behavioral concerns, assessing and intervening with students of concern, and sharing and documenting information.
