Special: Heroes

To nominate a hero on your campus, email Campus Safety at [email protected] and tell us why he or she deserves to be recognized for making their healthcare or educational facility more safe and secure.

Every day, someone at a hospital, school or university does something to make their campus community safer.

It could be dramatic, such as the school teacher who uses verbal de-escalation skills to prevent an active-shooter tragedy. It could be less obvious, such as the hospital security officer who makes the extra effort to develop and maintain his partnerships with emergency department staff; or the university Title IX coordinator who always goes the extra mile to ensure the sexual assault survivors she serves get the help they need. It could be the emergency manager who spearheads the upgrade of the campus emergency notification system or facilities manager successfully lobbying for the implementation of an upgraded lock and access control system.
