Behavioral Consultation Team

Northwestern’s Behavioral Consultation Team conducts threat assessments, addresses aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior that might impact the safety or well-being of the campus community and provides guidance and best practices for preventing violence and providing support services. 

University faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to report violent, potentially violent, and threatening behavior, in a timely manner, to University officials and will not be subjected to any acts of retaliation for reporting concerns in good faith. The University will use available resources such as University Police, Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, Human Resources, the Division of Student Affairs/Dean of Students Office, and applicable programs and policies in responding to alleged acts/threats of violence.

For additional information including incident reporting contacts, see the Behavioral Consultation Team policy and process document.
