How to Create a Campus Threat Assessment Team

Maintaining a campus culture that feels safe and welcoming is a huge priority for many institutions. However, there are times when an incident happens that causes students to feel uneasy about walking around or even just being in class. That is why it is important that campuses develop a Threat Assessment Team, also known as a Title IX team, which is put together by the higher education organization to create intervention strategies in the event that something should happen, and to also develop awareness on campus.

From Our Partners at eduOutcomes: Administering a Title IX Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey

According to data from the U.S. Department of Education, college campuses reported over 5,000 forcible sex offenses in 2013 – but a recent study shows that the actual number of offenses is estimated to be at least six times that number.
