Colleagues,
Instructor-focused classroom and campus safety training is once again under way this semester, with the goal of reaching 100 percent of UWM’s faculty and instructional staff. This training will help ensure that we are prepared to respond to situations that could cause students to feel unsafe. To date, approximately 1000 instructors and support staff have received training. If you have not attended a training session (or if you signed up to attend one but had to miss the session), please make it a priority this semester.
There are six sessions offered in person and virtually from September 2021 through December 2021. Co-developed by the Dean of Students Office and the UWM Police Department, the training has been well received by past participants. Training this year will also discuss online and virtual disruptions to include threats and methods to address these issues.
The focus is on disruptive students, students in crisis and what to do in case of a violent incident.
Due to some COVID-19 restrictions, the training will take place in person and in a virtual setting via Microsoft Teams. The training lasts approximately an hour and a half. To view the dates/times and register for the training please visit http://uwm.edu/safetytraining.
Thank you for participating in this important and essential campus training program.
