Assessment, Intervention and Management of Safety (AIMS)

A Resource for Student Success and Campus Safety

The Assessment, Intervention, and Management of Safety, is a multidisciplinary campus threat assessment and behavioral intervention team that guides the campus community in effectively assessing and addressing threatening and/or concerning behaviors. AIMS strives to assist the campus in intervening before behaviors reach a critical level.

AIMS does NOT respond directly to emergencies. Call 9-1-1 if you experience an emergency.

The purpose of AIMS include:

  • Conduct threat assessments
  • Coordinate a network of existing resources
  • Focus on prevention and early intervention in situations where students are distressed, disruptive, harmful or threatening to the community.
  • Support and advise individuals who experience concerning or potentially threatening behaviors.
  • Educate and empower constituents through on campus training and consultation to recognize, report, and effectively address aberrant, dangerous, threatening and concerning behaviors.
  • Collect, assess, and track information about behaviors.
  • Plan and implement interventions, follow up and monitor recommendations
  • Provide recommendations to appropriate campus constituents in order to manage situations and behaviors, preferably before they escalate to become threats or acts of violence.
  • Provide guidance and best practices for preventing violence and providing supportive services to the campus community in response to acts of violence.
