Instructor-focused classroom disruptions and campus safety presentation is once again under way this semester, with the goal of reaching 100 percent of UWM’s faculty and instructional staff. The focus of this presentation is to address students in crisis, when students are being disruptive, and what to do in case of a violent incident. This presentation will help ensure that we are prepared to respond to situations that could cause the UWM community to feel unsafe. To date, approximately 1200 faculty and instructional staff have received this valuable information. If you have not attended a training session (or if you signed up to attend but had to miss the session), please make it a priority this semester.

There are seven (7) sessions offered in person and virtually from September 2023 through December 2023. Co-developed by the Dean of Students Office and the UWM Police Department, the training has been well received by past participants. Training will also discuss online and virtual disruptions to include threats and methods to address these issues.

The training lasts approximately an hour and a half. To view the dates/times and register for the training please visit

Thank you for participating in this important and essential campus training program.

Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
