On-Campus Mass Casualty/Active Shooter Prevention, Preparedness, & Response Training(Vendor Session)

Mass casualty attacks (active shooter situations or terrorist attacks) evolve rapidly, with the number of these high impact incidents increasing dramatically over the last decade. These events are portrayed as unpredictable and random in the news, but violent attacks are noticed, reported and prevented every day through effective community training and awareness. Certain steps can be taken to decrease a potential shooter’s chances of successfully carrying out his or her plan.  A representative will be available following the presentation if you wish to discuss how the Violence Prevention can help your organization.

Higher Education Trials and Tribulations

Have you ever thought you should write a book about what happened in your office, because no one would believe it. You will be placed in groups and each group will be given several scenarios that have come across our desk as an Admissions or Registrar professional from real life situations to discuss. As a group you will have five minutes to discuss each scenario which will include “ Can you believe it moments” you will then be asked to provide your outcomes while taking in consideration your campus’s best practices and politics for handling issues. When we share our thoughts and processes with open dialogue we can learn from each other and come away hopefully better prepared to handle the next trial or tribulation.

Developing a Communications Plan to boost Enrollment

We shall develop in this course a cyclical communications plan: spanning the social, cultural, academic, and outcomes integration spaces with no end zone. The plan capitalizes on traditional techniques of engaging admitted students as well as innovative multimedia approaches to connecting with applicants and prospects in the enrollment pipeline. We shall talk about showcasing student life and other meaningful campus engagements by employing a variety of online and hybridized interaction platforms; from customized Apps to social media weblogs involving current students, alumni, faculty and administration. The strategy is to offer multimedia snapshots of the social, academic, (where available) athletics and wellness transitions that a new student can look forward to experiencing on campus. We will examine some front-line applications for constructing a virtual community. We shall round up with a corpus of techniques for boosting Enrollment goals on a fitted budget.
