September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM), a time when UALR will join other colleges and universities across the country to highlight the many ways members of the campus community can enhance personal safety.
In conjunction with NCSAM, the Division of Student Affairs and the Department of Public Safety have launched a safety campaign, “Safety September,” to heighten students’ awareness for their personal safety and inspire them to take care of each other.
The month-long campaign seeks to educate community members on sexual assault, alcohol and drug use, hazing, and other potential threats.
