A serious act of violence may be defined as an incidence of violence or potential violence which poses an imminent threat to members of the University community or a threat to the University’s reputation for safety.

An active shooter is an armed individual who has used deadly force and continues to do so with unrestricted access. The incident may be over quickly and can occur at any time and any location. It can involve a single shooter, multiple shooters, close encounters, distant encounters, random victims and mobile confrontations.

Get more information on responses to active shooters in the Response Procedures Guide [PDF].

ALICE Training Program

Eastern Michigan University has adopted the ALICE program to teach the proactive measures that people can take when faced with an assailant entering a building or classroom. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate and encourages community members to take an active role in their own safety.

What the ALICE program teaches is how to utilize strategies that have been proven to work best during such incidents and how to maximize the available information to make the best decision for your situation.
