Threat Assessment Team
Purpose of the Threat Assessment Team: As a requirement of Virginia Code Section 23-9.2:10, each public college or university shall have in place policies and procedures for the prevention of violence on campus. RCC is committed to providing a safe campus environment that promotes student learning. As part of this commitment, RCC has established the Threat Assessment Team, a multi-disciplinary group responsible for evaluating and managing risks associated with behaviors that may present a threat to the campus community’s safety. The RCC TAT, in collaboration with the RCC Violence Prevention Committee, will help develop policies and procedures for violence prevention, including assessment and intervention with individuals whose behavior may pose a threat to campus safety. The RCC Threat Assessment Team members include the vice president of finance and administrative services, Glenns Campus dean, Warsaw Campus dean, dean of student development, human resources manager, counselors and other College constituencies as needed. All members of the Threat Assessment Team are considered to be school officials and will have complete access to student records when necessary to do their job. The Threat Assessment Team is responsible for addressing reported behavioral or mental health incidents involving students, faculty, staff or visitors which occur on a RCC campus or site.
