First Friday Roundtable

The First Friday Roundtable session on Feb. 12 will review UD's teaching and learning grants.

"The safety and security of our campus community are top priorities," said Albert "Skip" Homiak Jr., executive director of campus and public safety. "The exercise lets us gather together all the appropriate personnel for a practice run so that we can be better prepared if a real emergency arises.

"We have conducted such exercises regularly for the past several years, and they have been extremely helpful in defining the roles for different units and practicing our emergency response procedures," he said.

Activities are confined to the meeting room; there will be no actual emergency response units in action on the campus for the exercise.
