What It Takes to Improve Campus Safety

ChroniclePage_041024_Safety_AT&T_CampaignAssets.png

As rising crime, mass shootings, and the effects of natural disasters pose major threats to physical campuses, how should administrators prioritize their attention? Also how can institutions keep students, faculty, and staff safe in this environment, and what role does technology play in these efforts?

A recent survey conducted by The Chronicle found that 60 percent of campus-safety officers and other administrators reported that their college was working more closely with local law enforcement and the community to help prevent crime on their campus and in surrounding areas.

Learn more about these findings from the survey and discuss student safety and the ethics surrounding campus surveillance and tracking efforts.

With Support From AT&T.

Host: Kate Hidalgo Bellows, staff reporter, The Chronicle of Higher Education
