We are now in our second week of National Campus Safety Awareness Month. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our events last week. We had a great turn out from the campus community. Pictures and videos from this event, and the others to come, can be found on the Public Safety Department’s social media pages.
For the second week of Campus Safety Awareness Month, we hope that you will be able to attend the following events:
Town Hall Meeting (Faculty/Staff)
10am Stern 206
As part of September’s National Campus Safety Awareness Month, Public Safety will host several town hall meetings for the campus community. This is a great opportunity to meet your Public Safety officers, ask questions, and share suggestions, comments, and concerns. Campus community members are always encouraged to actively participate in safety and security around campus. This session, open to faculty and staff only, will be held at 10am in Stern 206. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
Active Shooter Response Training
1pm Stern 201
The Department of Public Safety will be offering training on how to respond if you are encountered with an active shooter. This 30 minute presentation will cover: the definition of an active shooter; statistical realities behind active shooter incidents; how to identify concerning or suspicious behavior; reporting methods; main options for civilian self-defense; and what to do when law enforcement arrives on scene. This training is open to all students, faculty, and staff.
11am-1pm George Street
Join us on George Street from 11am to 1pm as we kick-off National Campus Safety Awareness Month. This carnival themed event will feature great food and lots of fun.

NV Promotion Day
