Student Support and Advocacy

Level Three

LEVEL THREE: LIFE THREATENING INCIDENT OR IMMEDIATE THREAT

Whenever there is an incident that is life threatening or risks the safety of any person, you should always contact the Department of Public Safety immediately.

This includes behavior that could be classified as unlawful harassment, stalking, or a death threat.

After a disruptive incident has occurred and a report has been taken, the Department of Public Safety customarily involves Student Affairs, Student Judicial Affairs, Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention and Services, Student Counseling Services, and other campus offices in responding to the incident. You can expect these and other offices to provide appropriate consultation and assistance on an ongoing basis where a serious problem has occurred.

When an incident is sufficiently serious and attracts media attention, senior officers of Student Affairs and of the Department of Public Safety will take the lead in communicating with the press, in conjunction with Media Relations and other appropriate offices. If the media contacts you, please refer to Media Relations, Department of Public Safety or Student Affairs.
