September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM)

In 2008, National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM) was unanimously approved by Congress to encourage a public conversation on important topics in violence prevention at our nation’s colleges and universities.

Our role with NCSAM at Clery Center has been simple: to develop free programs and resources that promote campus safety. Each year we choose a relevant theme, then work to spread awareness, inform institutional policy, and effect change.

Learn more about this year’s theme and connect to the resources below.
