Keeping Universities Safe: UMD Offers Training

The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) is holding a seminar dealing with campus safety from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, August 22 in the Kirby Student Center Ballroom. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, an internationally recognized expert on school violence, will present "Lessons from Columbine and Virgina Tech" at the event.

Grossman is a researcher, author, and one of the world's foremost experts in the field of human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime. He is a former West Point psychology professor, a professor of military science, and a retired Army Ranger. He has made revolutionary new contributions to our understanding of killing in war, the psychological costs of war, the root causes of violent crime, and the process of healing the victims of violence, in war and peace.

He is the author of "On Killing", which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and has been translated into Japanese, Korean, and German. He co-authored "Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill: A Call to Action Against TV, Movie and Video Game Violence," which has received international acclaim. Grossman's most recent book is "On Combat."

NOTE: The media is invited to the session at 11:30 am. There will be an opportunity to interview Lt. Col. Grossman and UMD representatives during the lunch break, beginning at 12 noon.
