Following the advice of industry experts, learn how to minimize risk and better serve students who pose a threat to your campus.
Join us for a conference designed to help you evaluate whether your institution is doing everything possible to provide a safe campus and respond appropriately to students who may pose a threat of harm to themselves or others. The focus of this event will be on how you can best serve at-risk students by identifying opportunities for collaboration across student conduct systems, threat and behavioral intervention teams, disability services, counseling and psychological services, case management, and others.
Our expert instructors will share recent research, current US and Canadian 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 you can assess, evaluate, and revise them throughout the conference.
To help bring the best practices and techniques discussed during this conference into context, you will take part in a simulation activity featuring 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 the simulation.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: A TEAM EFFORT
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.
While a single participant from your institution will certainly benefit from the content shared in this conference, we encourage you to send a team that includes representatives from related departments. Bringing the leader of your institution’s early intervention initiative, along with a variety of individuals responsible for implementing prevention and response for students at risk, can be invaluable in coordinating your efforts.
