* Active shooter drill scheduled

In cooperation with the Evansville Police Department, the University of Evansville is planning an Active Shooter Drill. In order to maintain the integrity of the drill exercise, the exact date and time will not be published in advance. Note: the drill is scheduled for some time between 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 11 and 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31. When the drill begins, all members of the campus community are expected to respond as if reacting to a real emergency situation. Participants are asked not to call 9-1-1 during the drill so that there is no disruption to the delivery of emergency services in the city. Also, please do not move your vehicle during a drill.

Things to know:

The drill will be announced to the campus community via an Ace Alert message. The alert will clearly state “THIS IS A DRILL” and will provide specific information relative to the location of a fictitious shooter. Only the Ace Alert message will activate the drill. 

The drill will not involve simulated gunshots or an individual(s) posing as a shooter. The Evansville Police Department will be present to provide constructive input during the drill and will provide direct feedback to those who are in the selected area(s). 

Whether or not you are in the direct area of the fictitious emergency, you should respond as you would if this were a real campus emergency. 

You should consider the possibility that a second “fictitious shooting event” may be part of the drill. 

The drill will conclude approximately 15 minutes after it begins with another Ace Alert message indicating the drill is over. 

At the conclusion of the drill, classes and/or activities will resume as normal. 

A Post Active Shooter Drill Survey will be emailed to all faculty, administrators, staff, and students on or before November 3. We ask that everyone respond to the survey as soon as possible after the drill.

How to respond during the drill:

Assess the situation! What do I know about the circumstances? What is the best response for me personally to ensure my safety? Then choose…

  • RUNIf the best way to keep yourself away from the fictitious danger is to flee the building, do so immediately. (For the drill, there is no reason to drive off-campus.)

    NOTE: In a real situation, if you hear gunshots on the other side of the building and you are close to an exit, law enforcement recommends running from the building. If you are outside, get as far away from the threat area as possible.  In some situations, you might decide that you can safely run away from the campus if the reported gunman is a good distance away from your campus location. 
  • HIDE: If you are in a position to lock a building door and can do so safely, do so. In addition, seek shelter inside of the building (classroom, closet, office, etc.)  If there is a lock on an interior door, lock yourself in the space. Go to a location in the room where you cannot be seen and stay in place until you are notified that the threat (drill) is over. Turn ringers and other tones off of cell phones and turn off lights if possible.
  • FIGHT: Note: There will be no need to FIGHT during this drill. In a real situation - If you are confronted with a gunman, you (and those with you) stand a better chance of surviving if you do something rather than nothing. Look around you. What would you use to help defend yourself?  

Remember: All exterior doors to buildings may be locked if the occupants within the building can do so safely. Electronic Card access may also be shut off. Use your best judgment in determining the safest course of action to protect yourself. Seconds count!

Watch the Video – Run, Hide, Fight.

As a reminder, you can find information about “Emergency Situations and Procedures” on the Safety and Security Website (https://www.evansville.edu/safety/emergencyProcedures.cfm) including a video on the Run, Hide, Fight response (https://www.evansville.edu/safety/) and additional information such as sheltering in place, outside and inside threats, and so forth.

* UE Theatre May Studio production of

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre proudly presents the Tony Award-nominated In The Next Room (or the Vibrator Play). The play opened October 20 in the May Studio Theatre. The last performance is at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

Playwright Sarah Ruhl’s imaginative script was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and she introduces us to the home and office of Dr. and Mrs. Givings, a seemingly ordinary Victorian couple. As the good doctor experiments treating hysteria with his new invention (the vibrator), his wife wrangles their newborn child, a reluctant wet nurse, and vies for attention from her work obsessed husband. This comedic gem of a play deftly examines the awakening of women’s sexuality and the one-sided relationship between doctor and patient in the late 19th century.

The play is directed by Kira Vuolo, a senior from Westminster, Colorado, Hilary Rubio, a senior from San Antonio, Texas, serves as the costume designer; John Fujisawa, a junior from Los Alamitos, California, is the scenic designer; Renee Voteau, a senior from St. Louis, Missouri, is the lighting designer; Kenny Impastato, a sophomore from Darien, Illinois, serves as the sound designer; Bailey Brandvold, a junior from Great Falls, Montana, is the dramaturg; Mary Claire Smalley, a senior from Nashville, Tennessee, is the stage manager; and Professor Chuck Meacham is the technical director.

The cast features Briggs Woolley, a senior from Mill Valley, California, as Doctor Givings; Alexi Lewis, a junior from Seattle, Washington, as Mrs. Catherine Givings; Grace Maddux, a freshman from Dubuque, Iowa; Madeline Easley, a junior from Overland Park, Kansas; Justin Pappas, a freshman from Boulder, Colorado; Amanda Cowan, a freshman from Mansfield, Texas; and Beau Wilcox, a freshman from Broomfield, Colorado.

Ticket prices are $11 for adults and $9 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff.

UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend. Tickets may be purchased by calling 812-488–2031, Monday through Friday, noon-5:00 p.m.
