Behavioral Threat Assessment Reporting

Michigan State University’s Behavioral Threat Assessment Team (BTAT) and the MSU DPPS Community Care Unit (CCU) both exist to facilitate a multidisciplinary, coordinated response to reports of students, employees, or other individuals on campus who have engaged in behavior indicating a possible threat of harm to self or other members of the campus community. If you feel a person on campus poses an immediate threat, contact the MSU DPPS. If you have concerns that a person may be a threat, complete a form on the BTAT website with details of your observations.
