News of threatening and tragic events involving college students and campuses may lead us to wonder how we would respond in a similar situation. Clearly, response to an active shooter should be dictated by the specific circumstances of the encounter. This seminar is designed to provide guidance on what to do in a shooting incident, how to be prepared, how to think safely, and how to recognize a potential problem, specifically in campus and classroom contexts.
