The Dean of Students and the UWM Police jointly offer instructor-focused campus safety training. In the past the training has focused on disruptive students, students in crisis, and what to do in the case of a violent incident. Such incidents are extremely rare, but UWM has the goal of providing this training to all faculty and instructional staff. Watch for campus announcements for training sessions in spring semester each year.
University and Safety and Assurances also provides information about emergency preparedness, including contact information for Emergency Medical, Fire, and life threatening situations. See the table below for details.
In addition, University Safety and Assurances provides Emergency Preparedness information about a range of scenarios, such as bomb threats, active shooters, and airborne chemical release.
