27 What questions need to be answered Do students have an overall feeling of safety? Is there any discrepancies result i.e. (males vs. females)? Does Rowan do enough to ensure safety? What does it all mean?

28 How to make sense of it all If more than 25% of the answers were below neutral the issue was red flagged Red-flagged issues are compared to experiences and suggestions Help gain an understanding of student population as a whole

29 What was discovered We found students as a whole are  Comfortable walking around campus  Feel there is adequate campus security  happy with the way campus is maintained  Concerned about construction and smoke coming out of grates on sidewalks  Feel unprepared in instances of injury or violence

30 Does Rowan do their part? Emergency poles give students a feeling of safety Students are happy with amount of campus security Feel comfortable with accessibility of public access in the case of an injury Students are happy with the maintenance of the campus

31 Rowan dropping the ball Students are very concerned about  Construction on campus  Snow removal problems  Smoke coming up through grates throughout campus  Personal preparation in events of violence or injury

32 Discrepancies As a whole students are happy with amount of campus security however, increased public safety was also one of the highest suggestions for improvement Also students feel personally unprepared despite the comfort in public safety  Why?

33 Surprises Many students fell unprepared in a case of emergency however would not take a class on public safety and was to improve personal safety The opinions of males and females did not have a large discrepancy on most of the questions

34 What can we do? Overall Rowan is making strides to keep a feeling of overall safety, however there is much room for improvement Making strides towards giving all students peace of mind about safety Has increased public safety, lights on campus, and added things like safe walk and ride, but there is still much to improve

35 Rowan can go back to the student body and ask for new suggestions and ideas Students would still like to see Lights Maintained and additional emergency poles Increased response time More Public Safety
