About the Workshop

This DYNAMIC workshop, geared to members of the campus community, presents strategies to increase the likelihood of surviving an active shooter incident. The presentation covers the three steps for increasing your chances of surviving an active shooter:

  • Run
  • Hide
  • Fight (Last Resort)

Staff from several academic departments and student services units participate with police officers in delivering the workshop. This team approach helps faculty, students and staff better relate to the scenarios and concepts demonstrated in the program, which includes demonstrations for attacking an attacker including taking away a handgun.  Other topics covered include:

  • The will to survive
  • Identifying police department capabilities
  • Weapon identification for community members

The Active Shooter Survival Workshop emphasizes the need for communities to pre-plan for catastrophic events and shows them how to identify an active-incident safe space in the campus environment.
