SMU is committed to providing a safe workplace that is free from violence or threats of violence. The prevention of workplace violence is a responsibility we all share. SMU Policy requires all employees to report any violent or potentially violent behavior. Reports will be evaluated by the Workplace Violence Assessment Team. This team will identify and evaluate emerging threats, and make recommendations for action.
The University will take seriously all reports of threats and take action to mitigate or eliminate the threat.
To Report A Concern:
Call 911 or 214-768-3333 (SMU Police Department).

If you have any doubt regarding the nature of a threat or believe immediate action is needed, call the SMU Police Department at 911 or 214-768-3333.
