University of Utah syllabuses to include safety information
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The University of Utah is requiring course syllabuses to include information about campus alerts, how to report suspicious activity, request courtesy escorts and contact campus police.
The Deseret News reported Monday that students pushed for the requirement that was supported by the university’s students association and approved by the Academic Senate last spring.
Syllabuses outline classes and usually include course objectives, policies, calendars and required readings.
The requirement follows the killings of three students in the past two years.
Authorities say 23-year-old Mackenzie Lueck was kidnapped and killed in mid-June.
Lauren McCluskey was shot and killed on campus by her ex-boyfriend in October.
ChenWei Guo was killed in October 2017 in an attempted carjacking.
