Office of Threat Assessment and Management
The Office of Threat Assessment and Management was developed with a very straightforward vision in mind: everyone has the right and reasonable expectation to be safe when they come to USC to study, teach, learn and work. We must make USC a place of thriving — free from the distress and pain that can result from threatening behavior or acts of violence. The focus of the office is to assist the university in the early identification of potential risk and to assist in the development of strategies designed to both prevent violence and to assist redirection toward healthy, appropriate behavior.
USC Threat Assessment & Management will provide proactive collaborative oversight and support to the University in the identification, assessment and management of threats and/or threatening behavior that may lead to acts of targeted violence against the USC campus and community.
