Assessment Care Team (ACT)
The Mesa Community College Assessment Care Team is a behavioral prevention support for faculty, staff and students. It combines student intervention strategies and crisis management tools with the outcome of preventing threatening behaviors.
The Assessment Care Team consists of representatives from the following departments:
- Public Safety
- Early Alert Referral Services
- Counseling Services
- Faculty Representative
- Compliance Services
Behavior that poses an imminent risk of danger to anyone must be reported immediately to Public Safety.
If you would like an ACT Awareness session presented to your department, please contact Cindy Jepsen, Coordinator of College Compliance, 480-461-7817, firstname.lastname@example.org
Adopted by the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association, this assessment tool will assist you in 1) evaluating student behaviors, 2) determining the generalized risk to the campus and 3) deciding who would be best to intervene based on the level of aggression.
