Instructor-focused classroom and campus safety training begins Sept. 25

Instructor-focused classroom and campus safety training is once again underway this semester, with the goal of reaching 100% of UWM’s faculty and instructional staff. This training will help ensure faculty and staff are prepared to respond to situations that could cause students to feel unsafe. To date, over 700 instructors and support staff have received training. For those who have not attended a training session (or signed up but had to miss the session), please make it a priority this semester.

There are eight sessions offered from September 2019 through December 2019.  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 are:

09/25   (9:00 a.m. – Union 191)

10/07   (1:00 p.m. – Union 280)

10/16   (10:00 a.m. – Union 191)
