As part of the SMU Aware campus preparedness campaign, students, faculty and staff in November learned the four steps to take in the event of an active shooter or other violence on campus:

• Hide under furniture, turn out lights, close blinds, and barricade or lock doors.
• Spread out on the floor, stay away from windows.
• Warn others: Call 911.
• Wait for “all clear” by police.
