Students shared perspectives on campus security and explored plans to increase a sense of personal safety during a town hall meeting on April 13.
The North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Social Work Department senior seminar class hosted a campus safety town hall meeting to hear input from the NCCU campus community. Audience members participated in a panel discussion and interactive polling via text messages on issues of campus safety.
Panelist from NCCU’s Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, Counseling Center, Administration and Finance, Campus Police and Residential Life interacted with participants to provide more insight into campus safety protocol, initiatives and collaborations developed to increase safety.
NCCU Chancellor Debra Saunders-White attended the event to hear the students’ feedback.
“Our objective is to bring awareness and generate ideas that would increase campus safety,” said Wendi Wright, a senior studying social work and project leader for the senior seminar class. “We would like to continue facilitating forums that will generate discussion on keeping our campus safe.”
Being proactive and responsive are vital to continuing campus safety. If you are in an emergency situation on campus, call 919-530-6106 from any campus telephone or mobile phone.
