Security Culture on Campus: Considerations for Urban Universities
Simmons, Lizbet
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n2 p57-65 2007
This article examines the social meaning of security practices at urban university settings. The work first demonstrates the way in which physical fortification and surveillance technology have been implemented in urban institutional settings and considers the role these particular practices may play in shaping the socio-cultural identity of the university. Secondly, the work investigates alternate conceptions of security and considers the potential stability offered by the visionary ideals of the institutional mission statement.
