What We Do

Effective threat assessment is challenging and can involve elements from behavioral sciences, student affairs, legal counsel, law enforcement, risk management and human resources. Members of the University of Arizona's multi-disciplinary Threat Assessment and Management Team (TAMT) work together in evaluating and responding to threatening or potentially violent situations. The TAMT depends on the campus community for early reporting of any concerning behavior.

What is threatening behavior?

Any statement, communication, conduct or gesture directed toward any member of the campus community or others which causes reasonable apprehension, or fear of physical harm. The threat can be towards people or property.

If you have an encounter with someone that leaves you frightened or in fear for your personal safety, it should be taken very seriously. If you have questions or concerns, please contact any member of the Threat Assessment and Management Team. If you feel you are in imminent danger, never hesitate to call 9-1-1.

Examples of Threatening Behavior:

• Direct or implied threats of violence
• Challenges to fight
• Shoving
• Physical attacks
• Stalking
• Threatening phone calls, emails, or other correspondence
