OD: Preventing Campus Violence: An Integrated Approach to Threat Assessment and Management

Recorded October 15, 2008

Overview

Although colleges and universities are safer than most environments, recent events have driven home the realization that all campuses are at risk of violence. In response, institutions are evaluating ways to instill a culture of security and develop strategies to prevent violence on campus. This program will share details of an integrated approach to threat assessment and management that evolved in response to a mandate for the North Carolina university system.

Identifying potentially violent members of the campus community before they act is vital in preventing tragedy. Adopting an appropriate threat assessment model can help reduce the risk of violence, ensure a prepared response, reduce exposure to liability, and instill public confidence. Drawing from a variety of sources, our presenters will explain the principles of threat assessment and how to set up a cross-functional campus team and establish an organizational structure that supports identification, tracking, and management of threats
