Season 1 – Episode 4: Campus Safety and Collaboration
Campus safety and collaboration go hand in hand. Collaboration with different disciplines and divisions across a campus can allow for greater compliance with the Clery Act. Collaboration across an institution’s campus can take place in a variety of different forms. An important aspect of developing collaborative action across a campus is to ensure stakeholders are having the necessary conversations to make their campus safe.
Ed Purchase, the Public Safety Operations and Clery Act Training Coordinator at the University of North Carolina system spoke to On Campus with CITI Program about campus safety and collaboration. In his role at the UNC system, Ed is primarily responsible for providing training, guidance, support, and technical assistance to the sixteen campus Clery Compliance Officers in the UNC system.
