Addressing Threatening Behavior

  • Threatening Behavior is any statement, communication, conduct, or gesture, including those in written form, directed toward any member of the University community that causes a reasonable apprehension of physical harm to a person or property. 

    Threatening Behavior IS:

    • Direct or implied threats of violence;
    • Challenges to fight;
    • Shoving;
    • Physical attacks;
    • Stalking;
    • Threatening phone calls, emails or other such correspondence;
    • Acts of harassment and similar behaviors.

    Threatening behavior should be immediately discussed with your department chair or supervisor, Campus Police, and the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.
