While in Los Angeles meeting with alumni last week, I learned about the terrible shootings at Northern Illinois University. Like everyone else, I was shocked and dismayed. Since returning this Monday I have met with many of the people responsible for the safety of our campus community. Incidents such as the NIU tragedy remind us that we can never stop looking for ways to improve campus security; that we can never review our procedures and policies enough to ensure they are as strong as they can be in protecting our students, faculty, and staff.
This has been a heart-wrenching week for higher education as we learn of the tragic events at Northern Illinois University, which come so soon on the heels of the Louisiana Technical College shooting.
