Team Members

The Behavioral Assessment Team is a multi-disciplinary group whose purpose is to support students, faculty and staff via an established protocol. The team tracks student behavioral concerns over time, detecting patterns, trends and disturbances in individual or group behavior. The team receives reports of disruptive, problematic or concerning behavior or misconduct; conducts an investigation of each report; performs a threat assessment; and then determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, warning/notification, and response. The team then activates campus and/or community resources and coordinates follow-up. BAT is not a substitute for classroom management. You may contact them at
