Over the past several months, I have been working with some colleagues in higher education and K12 independent schools on the development of a new resource for safety and risk in education. Together, we have created the Center for Student Affairs Policy and Law (CSAPAL).
A high-level overview of what CSAPAL does is:
The Center for Student Affairs Policy and Law, CSAPAL (pronounced C-S-A-“Pal”). CSAPAL fills the tremendous need for affordable training and resources to support educational institutions and their student affairs professionals on risk management, law, policy, student and campus safety, violence prevention and wellness issues.
We are a group of practitioners who are passionate about helping higher education and K12 educators and leaders by providing education, training, seminars, conferences, expert advice, and certifications in student affairs, safety, risk, conduct, and legal compliance, including Title IX.
Our programming and website is still under development but we have a lot of resources and capacity to help. Check out our blog – https://www.csapal.org/blog/ – and let me know what you think.
From your perspective, what are the biggest risk/safety issues you are seeing in education?
