Threat Assessment and Management logo
What We Do

Threat Assessment in a higher education setting represents unique challenges that require merging elements from behavioral sciences, student affairs behavioral intervention, law, and law enforcement, risk management and human resources. Members of the University of Arizona’s multi-disciplinary Threat Assessment Management Team (TAMT) work together in responding to threatening situations. The TAMT encourages early reporting of any concerning behavior, sooner than later, to promote effective case management planning and response.

Threatening Behavior is:

Any statement, communication, conduct or gesture directed toward any member of the University community or others that causes a reasonable apprehension of physical harm to a person or property is considered threatening behavior.

Encounters with individuals that leave you frightened and in fear for your personal safety should be taken very seriously. If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact a member of the TAMT.

If the threat is immediate, Dial 911 for police assistance.

Examples of Threatening Behavior:

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