National Campus Safety Awareness Month Week 4

By | September 26, 2016

We are now in our fourth week of National Campus Safety Awareness Month. We have enjoyed working with our campus partners to raise awareness on a wide variety of health and safety issues.

For the fourth week of Campus Safety Awareness Month, we hope that you will be able to attend the following events:

September 26th

Town Hall Meeting (Students)

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 students only, will be held at 2:30pm in Stern 206. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

September 27th

Coffee with a Cop

Join Public Safety at Addlestone Library at 9am for a cup of coffee and conversation. This is an opportunity to meet your Public Safety officers and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

September 29th

SGA Bike Auction

The Bike Auction will be held on George Street (in front of the Stern Student Center) on Thursday September 29th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Bikes are sold “as is” and there are no refunds.  Cash or checks (made payable to “College of Charleston”) are accepted (and there is a Wells Fargo ATM in the lobby of the Stern Center, if needed).  Public Safety will be on-site to register bicycles.

September 30th

Active Shooter Response Training

The Department of Public Safety will be offering training on how to respond if you are encountered with an active shooter. This 45 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. It will be held in Stern 201 at 10am


Look for weekly e-mails with updates as to what programs and activities are being offered in the coming weeks. Until then, please visit the National Campus Safety Awareness Month website for more information.  You can also check out our full calendar of events here
