Employee Institutional Response Team
In addition to the Institutional Response Team (IRT) that responds when there is a concern that a student may pose a risk of substantial harm to himself/herself, to others or to property, Miami University has an Employee Institutional Response Team (E-IRT) that responds when there is concern that an employee poses a risk of substantial harm to himself/herself, to others or to property.
The E-IRT consists of representatives of various campus offices.
If you have concerns that an employee may pose a risk of substantial harm to himself/herself, to someone else, or to property, we encourage you to contact co-chairs Celia Ellison (for faculty or staff in academic affairs units) or Dawn Fahner (for classified staff and unclassified staff in non-academic units). If they are unavailable, please contact any E-IRT member listed below.
For immediate potential danger call 911, or Miami University police at 513-529-2222 for the Oxford campus. Hamilton campus security can be reached at 513-785-3222; Middletown campus security can be reached at 513-727-3333 and at the Voice of America Learning Center, call 513-895-8862 daytime and 513-330-1530 in the evening.
Also, please make time to view a new 6-minute public service announcement about what to do if you are in the area of an active shooter. This advice reflects updated law enforcement theory on how to respond to a shooter.
