The Behavioral Threat Assessment Team


If you are concerned about a student, employee or other individual for any reason, please consider making a BTAT referral — this is the centralized reporting system at MSU.

The Behavioral Threat Assessment Team (BTAT) focuses on individuals who have engaged in behavior indicating a possible threat of harm to self or other members of the campus community. BTAT’s goals include:

    • Supporting a safe, productive working and learning environment;
    • Educating the campus community to identify and report potential threats; and
    • Providing early, prompt, and effective intervention.

The BTAT becomes involved when any member of the MSU community submits a referral to the BTAT case manager. A CARES report is automatically generated and will be routed to the most appropriate resource for a coordinated response.
