University and Community Threat Assessment Team
The work of the Threat Assessment Team relates solely to addressing potential or actual serious safety issues involving members of the campus community. It does not supersede, supplant, or replace the University’s current judicial procedure or the protocols for reporting incidents and safety concerns.
The Chair of the Threat Assessment Team has the authority to designate persona non grata any individual from the grounds of Adelphi University if, in his/her opinion, that individual presents an ongoing threat to any member of the Adelphi community.
Any member of the campus community may become aware of a troubling situation that is causing serious anxiety, stress, or fear in or out of class. If such a situation appears to be imminent, including possible immediate risk of violence to self or others, it should be reported immediately to the Department of Public Safety.
When and How to Report Issues of Concern
Any self-injurious behaviors, suicidal ideation, erratic behaviors that disrupt teaching or University activities, or behaviors that might compromise safety should be reported. All reports will remain confidential. When in doubt, report.
If you feel there is an immediate threat, dial “5” from any campus phone to contact the Department of Public Safety. For non-emergencies call 516.877.3511. Otherwise, use the resources below depending on the nature of the concern.
If a member of the University community observes any behavior that is of concern and should be brought to the attention of the Threat Assessment Team, please call during business hours:
In reference to students behavior contact the Dean of Student Affairs. In reference to staff behavior contact the Office of Human Resources. In reference to faculty behavior contact the Office of the Dean, Provost, or Human Resources.
For immediate attention or off business hours please contact Public Safety.
Anyone who feels an individual associated with Adelphi University is a threat to himself/herself and/or the University community can make a referral. This includes students, faculty, staff, coaches, roommates, and parents. Reports to the Threat Assessment Team or Public Safety can be made anonymously.
The Threat Assessment Team members will take the information provided and make a decision regarding appropriate action. The Threat Assessment Team will ensure every report is thoroughly addressed.
You do not have to make this determination. If another campus resource is more appropriate, a member of the Threat Assessment Team will refer the student and handle the transfer of information.
