Chancellor's University-Wide Task Force on Campus Safety: Findings, Summary & Recommendations, 1996-1997.
New York State Univ. System, Albany.
This report presents findings and recommendations of a State University of New York (SUNY) university-wide task force on campus safety. The group held meetings, surveyed SUNY campuses, and analyzed references and materials from national and state resources. An overall conclusion was that no single monolithic formula could be applied to all SUNY components. However, broad recommendations that could be adapted to each campus were formulated. The report begins by describing the task force methodology. This is followed by an overview of campus safety legislation and judicial decisions that affect campus safety. This section also considers university initiatives to comply with various state and federal laws, such as the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990. Next is an overview of campus departments of public safety, including their historical development and operational authority. The report then presents the specific findings of the three task force subcommittees which examined education, prevention and compliance, and crisis management. Each subcommittee section concludes with recommendations. Appendices include task force correspondence, a list of task force members, and a list of resources. (Contains 60 references.) (DB)
