  • Part 1 of an 8-Part Series: April 20, 2019, marks the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School mass shooting, which was ranked the worst school shooting in U.S. history until the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on Feb. 4, 2018, and was one of the deadliest episodes of school violence. Today’s story is the first in an 8-story series, and we are posting it at 12:19 p.m. local time (11:19 a.m. Mountain Time), which is exactly when two Colorado students walked into their high school two decades ago and began a killing spree that left 13 dead, before killing themselves, permanently altering our sense of security in schools.
  • Part 2 of an 8-Part Series: During an in-service day earlier this semester, MBU faculty and staff members participated in active shooter training for the first time, following the 4E’s© program, led by members of the Creve Coeur Police Department.
  • Part 3 of an 8-Part Series: In the wake of the 20th anniversary of Columbine, it’s important to study the history of gun violence in schools, as well as how this violence has increased since the massacre 20 years ago.
  • Part 4 of an 8-Part Series: To ensure that students have the best chance of surviving an active shooter situation, several government entities such as the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA have provided training resources and information to students.
  • Part 5 of an 8-Part Series: Columbine shooters, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, killed 13, injured more than 20 and initiated a permanent change in America’s sense of security in schools. While millennials, Generation Xers and baby boomers grew up in a pre-Columbine era, Generation Z has never known a world in which school safety was the norm.
  • Part 6 of an 8-Part Series: The increase in school shootings since Columbine 20 years ago has raised concern in the U.S. and triggered endless questions, many regarding the killers and what leads them to committing such gruesome crimes.
  • America’s perpetual war with terrorists abroad is raging on as foreign extremists plot against the U.S. with malicious intent. We are told to fear an attack from the Third World, but should this be our main concern?
