             Each session will last about 90 minutes.

NOTE: Safety is the No. 1 priority on campus. MU officials want to be sure that everyone has an opportunity to learn how to react in the unlikely event of a violent attack. Last spring, the university created an Active Shooter Training Video to help educate the campus community and the public about how to best respond in a crisis situation. MU officials strongly encourage everyone to attend one of the sessions.
