Behavioral Awareness and Threat Assessment (BETA)
UMB promotes a safe and secure environment for its students, faculty, staff, volunteers, visitors, and affiliate employees, and has a zero tolerance philosophy for threats and acts of aggression or violence.
The BETA guide was created to help members of the UMB community identify and report threatening, aggressive, or violent behavior. Developed in accordance with the UMB Behavioral Evaluation and Threat Assessment Policy, the guide also provides information on campus resources and contacts.
Threatening, Aggressive, or Violent Behavior
Conduct (whether or not intended to be humorous) that is objectively or reasonably perceived by another as a threat, as violence, or as aggression.
Behavior that may precede or be indicative of violent behavior including, but not limited to, making threats of suicide or hurting one’s self, intimidating others, decline in academic or job performance, notable changes in personality or mood, and increased social isolation or alienation.
