How to Respond to Violence on Campus

Through a constant vigilance, Public Safety strives to maintain a peaceful and safe environment for students, faculty, staff, visitors and neighbors, and to protect university property. Guidelines have been created to prepare the university community for threats of violence/ targeted violence on campus, including an active shooter.

One of the best ways to prepare for a violent event is to be well informed. Read DePaul's Threats of Violence/Targeted Violence Guidelines.
