This article was originally publish on the NASPA Region V Blog. I have reposted it below:
With Hurricane Sandy and other recent events, there have been a lot of things happening in the past few weeks that relate to campus safety issues and I wanted to share one of the great resources that the Campus Safety Knowledge Community has, the campus safety resource page on the national KC’s website.
You can find the website at http://www.naspa.org/kc/cskc/Resources.cfm. It really is a great resource that includes material on a lot of interesting topics, the links to the sub categories are below:
Certification Programs and Professional Development/Consulting
College and University Related Incidents
Professional Organizations and Research Units
Recent Conference Presentations
Relevant Articles, Books, Dissertations, Indexes, Initiatives, Papers, Publications, Reports, and Videos
Suicide, Traumatic Stress, Grief, and Mental Health-Related Issues
Please peruse the website and the resources on it. Also, please let me know if there are resources that you know of that should be added and I will get that up there.
