A state task force wants college students in Missouri to receive more than just a course outline on their first day of class.

The governor's Campus Security Task Force says building-specific emergency plans should be included with the syllabus for each course and should be discussed on the first day of each semester. That's one of 34 recommendations being released today.

The panel was created by Governor Blunt following the deadly schootings at Virginia Tech University.

The task force also says colleges should ensure they have adequate police protection and should rehearse emergency plans with local officials. It recommends that teams of academic, law enforcement and mental health officials review information about students who could pose a safety concern.
