32 NCSI

First-ever comprehensive view of your school’s safety

 

Fall-Student-600x600To help colleges and universities be safer and more secure, the VTV Family Outreach Foundation has developed a new integrated approach to improving campus safety called the 32 National Campus Safety Initiative or 32 NCSI.

Following the tragedy at Virginia Tech in 2007, survivors and victims’ families joined together to uncover all the dimensions of campus safety and facilitate a forum where national experts could develop best practices and resources.

The first result is a free, confidential, self-paced, online self-assessment program that looks at key areas of campus safety. Using this new resource, colleges and universities can better assess themselves across nine important areas:

  1. Alcohol & Other Drugs
  2. Campus Public Safety
  3. Emergency Management
  4. Hazing
  5. Mental Health
  6. Missing Students
  7. Physical Security
  8. Sexual Violence
  9. Threat Assessment

For the first time, school administrators can better see all the aspects of their campus safety in one review. It brings people together with a multi-department team approach for real collaboration. 32 NCSI is different because it’s solutions-focused, not compliance-based, so it assists schools in implementing or reinforcing holistic procedures to strengthen campus safety.
