Behavior of Concern
If You See Something, Say Something
The University of Idaho is committed to providing a safe working, living and learning environment for its members and visitors. This commitment applies to all facilities and locations, including vehicles and field locations, where university business is conducted or services are provided.
An important early step in preventing violence is to assess and manage any behavior that might develop into actions that would harm the self or others. The university is interested in providing assistance to individuals or units who observe behavior that concerns them, and that has potential to develop into disruptive or harmful actions.
- If you notice behavior of concern in students, please refer your concerns to Student Affairs.
- If you notice behavior of concern in staff, faculty or visitors, please seek advice from the Office of Public Safety and Security. Public Safety and Security can direct you to university resources to deal with the behavior that concerns you.
The university provides students, staff and faculty with many resources to address behavior of concern, and appreciates your individual role in working to make the university a safe environment.

University Threat Assessment and Management Group
In addition to these practices / resources, the university developed a Threat Assessment and Management Group in 2009. The Threat Assessment and Management Group does not try to determine whether someone is a “violent” – the group tries to determine whether there are circumstances in which the person in question might pose a threat to themselves or others. The Threat Assessment and Management Group is committed to improving community safety through a proactive, collaborative, coordinated, objective, and thoughtful approach to the prevention, identification, assessment intervention and management of situations that pose, or may reasonably pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of the campus community.
The earlier the university is able to intervene, the better our chances for a healthy and safe environment. “If you see something, say something.”
