Book Cover: Creating and Maintaining Safe College Campuses


WISCAPE Faculty Affiliate Jerlando Jackson co-edited this forthcoming sourcebook with Melvin Cleveland Terrell, vice president for student affairs at Northeastern Illinois University .

Crime plagues college campuses nationwide, and administrators, policymakers,and college and university staff are under increasing parental and legislative pressure to demonstrate they can prevent crime and keep students safe. This useful manual serves as an aid in enhancing and evaluating safety programs, generating new solutions and interventions,complying with new legislation, and presenting practical steps and guidelines to establish best practices.

The book addresses issues such as high-risk drinking, discrimination, hate crimes,concealed weapons, sexual assault, and other crimes, and offers perspectives from administrators, campus security, student affairs personnel, faculty, and policymakers.

Dr. Jackson was able to complete research for this project with financial support from WISCAPE.
