Behavior Intervention and Threat Assessment Team

Mission Statement
The mission of the Pittsburg State University Behavior Intervention and Threat Assessment Team is to provide a proactive and supportive multidisciplinary team approach to assessment, intervention, and prevention of situations which may pose a threat to the educational functions, general wellbeing, and safety of the University community.

Purpose Statement
The purpose of the Behavior Intervention and Threat Assessment Team is to prevent individuals from harming themselves or others and to mitigate threat or disruption to the campus community. The team reviews situations of threat, potential violence, or incidents of actual violence on or adjacent to the campus or in locations and/or programs affiliated with the University.


General Overview
The Behavioral Intervention and Threat Assessment Team will conduct investigations as unobtrusively as possible, use all available resources to fulfill its responsibilities, and securely maintains all records.  The team may conduct interviews with involved parties when appropriate; manage all necessary communications relative to the matter; collaborate with employee supervisors and human resources about work-related issues, assignments, and employment status; and/or, make appropriate referral for university judicial action for situations involving students. Many of the team members have received formal training from the National Association of Behavior Intervention and Threat Assessment (NABITA) and/or the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP). The team may provide recommendation regarding aspects of risk management including establishment and review of security procedures, general university safety policies, or training programs for members of the campus community.

Awareness Training
  • About Training
  • Questions?

Students - Everfi

  • Everfi is a Title IX and Campus SaVE Act compliant education program that combines sexual assault, alcohol and substance abuse prevention in a comprehensive online training program.  The research-based curriculum of Everfi effectively reaches students using focus-group tested storytelling and interactions to maximize user engagement and information retention.

  • All Freshman students are required to complete this training.  If an incoming Freshmen student does not complete the training, as required by Federal Mandate, the University places a hold on their account until the training is complete. This restricts the student from enrolling the next semester, receiving their transcripts, etc.

Employees - Everfi

  • Everfi is an interactive, online, self-paced module designed to provide education in the areas of compliance with federal legislation including Title IX, the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women ACt (VAWA).
