September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month


Across the nation, colleges and universities will be emphasizing campus safety during the month of September. According to the Clery Center, “In 2008, National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM) was unanimously approved by Congress to encourage a public conversation on important topics in violence prevention at our nation’s colleges and universities.”

UACCM will join in the effort to educate students and employees on the importance of campus safety through several events during the month. The kick-off event is slated for September 1, 2021 at 11 a.m. in the parking lot north of the Student Union. 

“This is the time set aside for all colleges in the United States to focus on campus safety for the students, faculty, and staff,” said David Hall, Senior Campus Police Officer. Campus police will provide much of the programming throughout the month, although campus safety is their priority all year round.
