Working with the Community to Prevent Violence
Campus violence prevention depends on you, the UNCG community, to notice and refer potentially worrisome behaviors or situations before they result in harm. A person that receives help sooner, rather than later, may be less likely to experience more severe symptoms or cause harm to self or others. Thus, threat assessment is a supportive process, not a disciplinary or punitive one.
What is Threat Assessment?
"Threat Assessment is a process to identify and respond to students, faculty and staff who may pose a danger to others on campus, may pose a danger to themselves, or who may simply be struggling and in need of assistance and resources."
