November 17, 2017 – “We are extremely delighted to receive this Grant. We all know that setting up technology platforms can be a massive effort in terms of finances and human resources. With the help of this grant, we will be able to provide students with this safety feature. With the tap of a button, they can share their location as well as alert police, medical services, friends and family in case of an emergency,” said Kelly Klimpt, Director, Information Technology, at Alvin Community College.
The Campus Consortium Grant will enable Alvin Community College to further strengthen the safety and security of its students, faculty and staff. The Campus Safety app brings this functionality to your smartphone for an added sense of security both on and off campus. The application uses Wi-Fi or cellular data to provide your location data when you make an emergency call with the app. This gives far more accurate information about where you are, and therefore provides first responders with a better idea of where they need to go. Students can additionally redo the application to send alerts to their folks, gatekeepers or companions if there arises an occurrence of a crisis.
“The Campus Consortium Grant Committee is proud to present this award to Alvin Community College” states Anjli Jain, Chairman of the Campus Consortium. “The application allows students to get directly in touch with security if they feel threatened or unsafe.”
