Presented by Gary Pavela, a leading authority on campus security, the seminar will address critical issues including:
• The range of options campuses have in identifying and responding to at-risk students
• The current data on frequency of violent crimes on campus
• The association between mental illness and violence
• The legal and policy implications of removing clinically depressed/suicidal students from campus
• The benefits of properly designed “threat assessment” protocols and incident response teams
