Note: Individuals whose comments or conduct poses imminent danger or harm to themselves or others should immediately call 911.
UNT is committed to providing a safe environment for faculty, staff, students, visitors and anyone involved with official business or university-sponsored activities on campus. On rare occasions, the university must respond to employees and/or individuals whose behavior may pose a threat to the university community.
The Campus Assessment, Response & Evaluation (CARE) Team has been established (Policy 05.002) to respond to disruptive or potentially threatening behavior and provide resources to those involved. A similar service is available for students. Employees at other UNT System locations should contact Campus Human Resources offices, call campus police or call 911.
The faculty/staff CARE Team is chaired by a UNT Campus Human Resources representative and is a collaborative, interdisciplinary committee. Members include representatives from:
UNT Police Department
Dean of Students
Counseling and Testing Services
Office of the Provost
The CARE Team meets regularly to discuss referred employee behavior that may indicate risk to the university community. Emergency CARE Team meetings also may be scheduled.
Note: If an individual is threatening violent behavior or suicide, employees should call UNT Police, 940-565-3000 or 911.
Referrals are handled professionally and with compassion and sensitivity. The CARE Team ensures compliance with university policy, and state and federal privacy laws.
