The Illinois Legislature Public Act 095-0881: The Campus Security Enhancement Act of 2008 and Governors State University recognized the need to provide assistance to university community members in stressful or threatening situations. Based on evidence and research into campus tragedies, GSU has decided to take a hands-on, holistic approach to ensure that tools are in place to reduce risks related to campus violence through the Campus Threat Assessment Team.

To help in our efforts to ensure the safety of the campus community, please report all concerning behaviors that are potentially threatening, harmful to self or others, or disruptive to the university's mission.

  • Mission
