NCSAM 2018: What's Your Message?

It’s easy to get caught up in the “go, go, go” execution mode of running campus safety programs and have little time to think about the messaging behind those tasks. Many campus community members want to understand more about the background behind campus safety laws, requirements, programs or policies but don’t know where to turn to get that extra information.  Often times they might even feel brushed aside or ignored when seeking out those answers. 

During National Campus Safety Awareness Month 2018, Clery Center provided multiple professional development opportunities addressing the background of certain campus safety areas and strategies for talking about those areas with campus community members.

From reviewing the required components of a drug and alcohol abuse prevention program to the circumstances for issuing a timely warning, we tackled areas that often prompt questions due to a lack of understanding what is required or how pieces are accomplished. Messages explaining the purpose for campus safety actions and decisions communicate what an institution values. Let us help you determine how you talk about campus safety programs, how you involve other community members in understanding those messages, and how clear communication can help create safer campuses.
