  • NASPA Initiative Releases Results of Pilot Study: This month, NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education released a report that confirms the Culture of Respect Engagement Blueprint Program, a program devoted to helping institutions to strengthen their response to and prevention of sexual violence on campus, is an effective model to address this issue in higher education.
  • Implicit Bias Evaluation Tool: Everyone has implicit biases, or unconscious beliefs or attitudes about other people based on characteristics such as gender, race, ethnicity, and age. Biases may be formed early in life or take a lifetime to develop, but they are malleable and it is possible to implement unbiased behavioral responses. Project Implicit® developed a tool to evaluate and understand levels of bias.

  • Managing Student Mental Health at Historically Black Colleges and Universities: The National Center for Campus Public Safety partnered with the Historically Black Colleges and Universities-Law Enforcement Executives and Administrators to facilitate an emerging issues forum on July 12, 2016 that included 38 campus public safety executives and professionals from 28 Historically Black Colleges and Universities in 14 states. The resulting forum report, Managing Student Mental Health at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, provides background information on student mental health, an overview of the discussion of challenges, recommendations, and an appendix of resources for institutions of higher education.  
  • Active Threat Training: Given the increasing number and consistency of active shooter incidents, thousands of first responders, including police/law enforcement, campus public safety officials, and security officers, have undertaken active shooter or active threat trainings. We have developed a comprehensive list of active threat trainings that include in-person trainings, webinars, videos, and online courses.

  • New NCCPS Report on Challenges in Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence at Community Colleges: Sexual violence on college campuses is a significant issue for all institutions of higher education, but community colleges are often overlooked in the growing national discussion. To identify the areas of critical need for community colleges regarding prevention and response to sexual violence, as well as to elicit recommendations to mitigate those challenges, the NCCPS partnered with the AAWCC to facilitate an emerging issues forum. The group identified a series of recommendations to address challenges.
  • Oregon Work Group Releases Campus Safety Report: In November, the Oregon Campus Safety Work Group released their final report, Campus Safety at Oregon Post-Secondary Education Institutions, the culmination of a year's worth of work following the tragic incident at Umpqua Community College in October 2015. The report is organized by challenges and opportunities with specific, issue-based recommendations to advance campus safety and resilience.
