The mission of the Violence Prevention and Threat Management Program is to identify, deescalate, and decrease violent activity from negatively impacting our students, faculty, staff, and university community. Our staff work with a number of university partners to address behaviors of concern that include; but are not limited to, threatening communications directed towards one’s self or others, threatening behaviors, physical violence, stalking or unwanted pursuit, domestic or interpersonal violence, sexual violence, or other activities that may be violations of NC State’s Campus/Workplace Violence Regulation. Individuals of concern may be identified as students, staff, faculty, or non-affiliated individuals.
Safety is a community responsibility. Having an informed and knowledgeable community is a critical component to the mission of the Violence Prevention and Threat Management Program. Our office offers a number of training and education opportunities and information on reporting responsibilities, resources, and how to help. Participation in training is strongly encouraged and in some cases required for management level staff.
