UW-Eau Claire Campus Safety : Online Resource Accessibility : Active Shooting Threats
MetadataShow full item record
The unfortunate reality of active shootings on college campuses has increased campus safety communication and the types of resources provided for students, faculty and staff. The current study uses content analysis methodology to examine online resources from 293 colleges and universities across the United States. Results from this study highlight ease of resource accessibility as well as the types of content and sources made available: videos, written documents, emergency notifications, and in-person/online training. Results from this study can be used to better understand how colleges and universities communicate about active shooting preparedness and whether resources are easily accessible to students, faculty, and staff.
