When and How to Report Issues of Concern

FAQs about the Threat Assessment Team (TAT).

What type of behavior warrants a report?
Any self-injurious behaviors, suicidal ideation, erratic behaviors that disrupt teaching or University activities, or behaviors that might compromise safety should be reported.* When in doubt, REPORT.

What do I do if I know an individual who may need to be reported?
If you feel there is an immediate threat, dial “5” from any campus phone to contact the Department of Public Safety. For non-emergencies call 516.877.3511. Otherwise, use the resources below depending on the nature of the concern.

Who should you make your report to?
If a member of the University community observes any behavior that is of concern and should be brought to the attention of the Threat Assessment Team (TAT), please call during business hours:

What happens after I make a report?
The TAT members will take the information provided and make a decision regarding appropriate action. The TAT will ensure every report is thoroughly addressed.

How do I know if it is a TAT issue or if it is more appropriately handled by another campus resource?
