RMA Completes Safety and Emergency Preparedness Study for Ivy Tech

Protus3 News

Risk Management Associates, Inc. conducted a survey and assessment of the fourteen Ivy Tech Community College regions from September through October 2009. The task was to determine the degree compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), the physical and operational security posture, and the level of implementation of the Ivy Tech Emergency Operations Plan and Continuity of Operations Plan in each of the regions.

Within the fourteen regions, Ivy Tech had specified 23 campuses for RMA consultants to visit and evaluate. RMA conducted the surveys and assessments in Indiana in four phases. The first phase involved a team traveling to each of the 23 campuses specified by the contract for nighttime lighting surveys in early September. At the conclusion of the site visits, RMA consultants had conducted surveys on more than 30 campuses and interviewed over 300 staff, faculty, administrators and students. These additional surveys were conducted at the request of the region security managers during the scheduled site visits. All these and several more sites that were not visited were included in the analyses and in the site reports.

Ivy Tech Community College is the nation’s largest state-wide community college with single accreditation. It is the state’s largest public post-secondary institution serving more than 130,000 students a year. While students enjoy the benefits of a large institution, with 23 campuses throughout the state and an average class size of 22, students find personal attention close to home at Ivy Tech Community College. Ivy Tech Community College’s Department of Workforce and Economic Development is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, offering local, affordable solutions for Indiana business and industry training needs.
