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, over 900 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 seven sessions offered from January 2020 through April 2020.  Co-developed by the Dean of Students Office and the UWM Police Department, the training has been well received by past participants.

The focus is on disruptive students, students in crisis and what to do in case of a violent incident.  The dates of the training will be as follows:

1/29     (9:00 a.m. – Union 191)
2/11     (1:00 p.m. – Union 280)
2/20     (12:00 p.m. – Union 191)
3/4       (9:00 a.m. – Union 191)
3/17     (12:00 p.m. – UW-Milwaukee Police Department)

4/29     (9:00 a.m. – Union 191) – (Denim Day: https://www.denimdayinfo.org/)

The training will take place in the Union, except for the 3/17 session at the UWM Police Department, and the training lasts approximately an hour and a half.  To register for the training please visit http://uwm.edu/safetytraining.
