Michigan State University has hired an external firm to review the university's response to the Feb. 13 mass shooting.

MSU's entire response will be evaluated, including action by law enforcement, university operations, support and communication. 

The Ohio firm is an independent security consulting organization. According to a university press release, the team includes former law enforcement and public safety executives. 

"Their experience working with higher education institutions will be a critical asset as we work to strengthen our response efforts and ensure a safer campus for our community," MSU interim president Teresa Woodruff said in a press release.

Once the review is completed, the firm's recommendations will be shared with the public.
