Behavioral Threat Green Folder

The Michigan State University’s Behavioral Threat Assessment Team (BTAT) exists to facilitate a multidisciplinary, coordinated response to reports of students, employees, or other individuals on campus who have engaged in behavior indicating a possible threat of harm to self or other members of the campus community. Goals of the BTAT include:

  • Support a safe, productive working and learning environment
  • Educate the campus community to identify and report potential threats
  • Provide early, prompt, and effective intervention

The BTAT has also developed a resource called "The Green Folder" to help educators know who to contact and how to help students in distress. Additionally, this informational guide is designed to assist faculty and staff in recognizing and supporting students and employees of concern.
