Student Rights & Responsibilities

Student Consultation Team/Threat Assessment Team

The Student Consultation Team and Threat Assessment Team are an Ellensburg based, two-tier Central Washington University protocol to work with students who are exhibiting behaviors that may be concerning to the CWU community, specifically those behaviors that may pose a danger to themselves or others.

The goal is to create a cross-functional, multi-disciplinary university threat assessment strategy to assess and intervene with students who may be at risk, and to give guidance to the university community members who may need to refer students for assistance and review. The process involves the well-established Student Consultation Team and the Threat Assessment Team working in conjunction with each other. The Student Consultation Team meets weekly to review all reports and refers those reports that warrant the attention of the Threat Assessment Team.
