The tragic shootings at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007, shocked the nation, including those of us who work in student affairs. In fall 2007, NASPA convened a working group of student affairs colleagues with senior leadership experience to identify the critical issues student affairs professionals should consider related to violent incidents on college campuses. This report is a result of the group's deliberations. It presents a framework of planning for and responding to emergencies such as incidents of violence using a crisis management model.
