On April 2, 2014, the UWT Criminal Justice League and the Social Work Student Organization sponsored an evening of discussion about the prevention, response, and aftermath of campus shootings. Kristina Anderson, a survivor of the Virginia Tech mass shooting and founder of Koshka Foundation for Safe Schools, was joined by a panel of experts from the community including Dr. Eric Madfis (UWT Criminal Justice Professor), Susan Wagshul-Golden (UWT Director of Campus Safety & Security), and Amber Bradford (Mental Health Therapist at the Children's Advocacy Center).
