Policy and Mission Statement

Syracuse University is committed to preventing violence and promoting a campus
environment free from behaviors, actions, or language that may cause others to feel
physically threatened or in danger; or may result in work disruption, property damage,
physical injury, or loss of life; or interfere with the institution’s ability to execute its
mission. Safety and security are both personal and shared responsibilities. The collective
involvement of every member of the University community is essential to prevention.
The mission of the Syracuse University TAMT is to identify and assist at-risk community
members who may pose a threat of violence to themselves or others, intervene to avert
and/or address the threat and maintain the safety of the situation to reduce risks
related to campus violence.
