An active shooter training exercise will be conducted on the campus of IU East in Richmond on Friday, July 18.

The full-scale training exercise will include participating from surrounding police and emergency agencies. There will be over 60 volunteers conducting the planned scenario throughout the day.

Chancellor Kathy Cruz-Uribe says the training will provide campus an opportunity to validate its emergency management response plan.

“The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors at IU East is a top priority. Our campus is a safe place, but this scenario will give IU East an opportunity to take a proactive approach to test the planning we have in place and to evaluate and review the response process so that we are prepared for any potential emergency situation on campus,” Cruz-Uribe said.

Visitors to campus the day of the training exercise may see tactical activity and should follow directions as provided by law enforcement or campus officials.
