Threat Assessment and Response
Middlebury is committed to maintaining an environment that is safe for all students, staff, faculty, and visitors. To that end, Middlebury has established a Threat Assessment and Management (TAM) team, which is empowered to assess risk and, in cooperation with other appropriate Middlebury authorities, formulate an appropriate response in situations where an individual’s statements or behavior generate concern that he or she may present a threat to the health or safety of self or others. The TAM Team seeks to mitigate potential risks before they result in harm.
Anyone who believes that an individual has committed or may commit an act of violence, is engaging in behavior or making statements that generate concern about the potential for violence, or otherwise may threaten the health or safety of any member of the Middlebury community should call the appropriate campus office of public safety (listed on the Campus Information Pages). In cases of emergency, students should call 911 in the U.S. or the Porter’s office at the Oxford campus (dial 79800 from a Lincoln College phone); (see Oxford Summer Information Page). Individuals may also make a report to the TAM team, which will handle the matter in accordance with Middlebury’s Threat Assessment and Response Policy.
