Morris "Enough is Enough" presentation
In April 2009, UMM joined with campuses across the country to speak out, engage in dialogue, and take action to
stem the tide of societal violence during "Enough is Enough Week". Enough is Enough presentations include
information on campus safety, best practices in responding to active shooter situations, and information on
building community - one of the most important steps in preventing violence. If you would like to have the
presentation included at an upcoming staff, division, or student group meeting, please call Jen Lund in Campus
Police at 589-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any concerns about a troubled member of our community who is need of support, please contact Campus
Police (320-589-6000), the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (320-589-6013), or the Assistant Vice Chancellor

campus threat assessment team. They can be reached after business hours through Campus Police (cell phone
