Active Shooter Emergency Response
The Urbana University Department of Safety & Security Services works hard to maintain the highest level of safety across our campus community. In collaboration with our students, staff, faculty, visitors and local law enforcement, we participate in safety services and crime-prevention programs that help make Urbana a safe and secure place to work and learn.
With this goal in mind, the Department of Safety & Security Services has collaborated with our safety partners to provide a video addressing what you can do to stay safe in the event of an active shooter and/or active aggressor incident on our campus.
While it is everyone’s hope we never have to deal with this situation, we hope you will make time to watch this important video:
