Establishing a campus environment that is both open and safe for students and faculty and encourages community collaboration is a complex challenge. It can be difficult to know who is on campus and where they are at any given time. This information is vital during critical events to ensure the correct information is communicated quickly, easily and reliably to anyone impacted. Campus-wide alerts about emergency situations, school closings and campus events keep the community informed while empowering students to become partners in their own security, whether they are on campus or off, or even studying overseas.
Colleges and universities have a duty of care to protect students whether they are on campus or studying abroad. Knowing when potential threats might impact students studying overseas and having a simple and direct way to communicate with them ensures these students remain out of harm’s way and receive the full advantages of an international educational experience.read more
