The number of students with significant psychological disabilities enrolled at colleges, universities, and community colleges is on the rise. More than ever before, knowing how to effectively handle student conduct issues and possible threat concerns has become a priority for many campuses.

Join us for an interactive conference designed to help you evaluate if your institution is doing everything possible to provide a safe campus and respond appropriately to individual student needs. The focus of this event will be on the effective intersection and collaborative integration of various campus departments and processes, including student conduct systems, threat and behavioral intervention teams, disability services, counseling and psychological services, and others.

Presenters will share the most recent research, legal requirements, proactive prevention strategies, and best practices for evaluating and responding to student threats and potential harm to the student and others. There will be many opportunities for you to interact with your colleagues and with our instructors. We encourage you to bring copies of your current policies and protocols so that you can assess, evaluate, and revise them throughout the conference.

Institutions are encouraged to attend as teams in order to gain the most effective learning and application from the conference.


In addition to the live event, conference attendees will engage in a 60-minute pre-conference webcast (May 15, 2012) to set the context, provide advance information, and allow participants to discuss in advance their anticipated outcomes for attending the conference.


To help bring the best practices and techniques discussed during this conference into context, you will take part in a half-day interactive group tabletop simulation of a case involving a student who poses a threat of harm. You will have an opportunity to debrief and discuss various decisions and responses throughout.


We encourage you to send teams that include representatives from related departments. Bringing the champion of the early intervention initiative as well as a range of individuals responsible for implementing it can be invaluable in coordinating your efforts.


This program is designed for student affairs and related staff, including senior student affairs officers, residence life, health services, disability services, counseling services, campus legal counsel, student conduct officers, case managers, threat and/or behavioral intervention team members, and campus safety and security.
