CCU did right thing in reopening campus

Recently, Coastal Carolina University officials faced what many are calling the first “active shooter” incident in the school’s history, and some in the media (and general public) have criticized the university’s decision to reopen the campus and resume normal operations on the morning following the shooting. Criticism and the objective analysis of any organization’s actions during a crisis can be, naturally, a valid exercise. The criticism leveled at CCU, however, appears to be based upon some faulty logic and perhaps a misunderstanding of the calculus used to make such decisions in an institutional setting.
