Threat Assessment Team

Threat Assessment Team (TAT)

The Threat Assessment Team (TAT) meets as needed to review escalated cases involving student distress, disruption, or concern. The purpose of the Threat Assessment Team is to help preserve the safety and security of the University community. The Team meets when there is a concern that someone or somehting poses a danger of harm to others. The Team reviews situations that involve students, visitors, and others in the vicinity of the University community. Our goal is to identify concerns as soon as possible; gather as much information as quickly as possible; and to work constructively and collaboratively to address problems before they escalate.

Safety is the responsibility of every member of our community. If you see or hear something of concern, report it. Faculty, staff, and students may contact the Office of the Dean of Students or ETSU Public Safety.

In an emergency, please call 9-1-1 from a campus phone or 423-439-4480 or 423-439-6900 from your cell phone in order to reach ETSU Public Safety.
