Background and Focus
Following the tragedy at Virginia Tech in 2007, survivors and victims’ families joined together to uncover all the dimensions of campus safety and facilitate a forum where national experts could develop best practices and resources. The result is a self-paced, online self-assessment program that looks at key areas of campus safety in one review. 32 NCSI is solutions-focused, not compliance-based, and assists institutions with implementing and reinforcing holistic procedures to strengthen campus safety.
Using 32 NCSI, colleges and universities can better assess themselves across nine critical areas:
- Alcohol and Other Drugs
- Campus Public Safety
- Emergency Management
- Mental Health
- Missing Students
- Physical Security
- Sexual Violence
- Threat Assessment
Participate in 32 NCSI
32 NCSI is available as an individual self-assessment as well as part of the NASPA P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. self-assessment. The P.R.A.C.T.I.C.E.S. self-assessment incorporates 32 NCSI and focuses on student affairs policies, resources, relationship with academic affairs, compliance, technology, inclusion, community, evidence, and student success.
