UMB established the BETA Team to coordinate activities in response to reports of threatening, aggressive, or violent behavior. The BETA Team consists of appointed, standing representatives from various UMB offices and is chaired by a representative of the UMB Police Force.

Responsibilities of the BETA Team include:

  • Assess reports of threatening, aggressive, or violent behavior and develop a strategy and plan.
  • Act as a resource and liaison for UMB community members who report threatening, aggressive, or violent behavior and for school/department administrators.
  • Make recommendations to appropriate deans and University vice presidents and/or their designees.
  • Coordinate BETA Team efforts with action under relevant UMB policies.
  • Regularly review strategies and plans, as necessary, for ongoing incidents.
  • Keep records of reports and actions to assess risk and evaluate UMB response to threatening, aggressive, or violent behavior.
