Security and Crisis Management

  • Campuses are analogous to small cities, with all of the myriad challenges that entails. Keeping students safe is paramount among the responsibilities an institution has, and colleges and universities take this obligation with the utmost seriousness. Other issues in this area include emergency response planning, crisis communications and Clery Act compliance. Non-emergency security—such as laboratory and data security—also falls under this umbrella. An effective and comprehensive plan considers the academic and research environment but also effectively meets the safety and security needs of students, families, staff and the community at large.
