Critical Incident Response Team
With a university community of over 62,000 students, Texas A&M University and the Division of Student Affairs realize that crises, or critical incidents, will occur and that these crises can have a significant effect on the larger community. Such critical incidents require effective and timely response.

Texas A&M University and the Division of Student Affairs developed a Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT), consisting of university administrators and staff to best respond to these critical incidents. The purpose of CIRT is to provide assistance and support to Texas A&M University students involved in, or impacted by, a critical incident. CIRT members do not act as first responders; they respond to incidents as representatives from the University assisting the students and their families with immediate concerns.
