Suzanne Johnson, President at Green River College said, “We are committed to providing our students with the necessary resources to safely obtain an outstanding educational experience. A safety-focused mobile app will, therefore, be an invaluable asset for our institution. With the help of Campus Consortium grant, we are looking to implement a platform that will enhance the security at our campus and will provide our students with a safer learning environment.”

This grant will enable Green River College to improve security on campus with the campus safety app. The grant is intended to offset the licensing, hosting, professional services, and support costs associated with the implementation of the platform

The campus safety app uses wi-fi or cellular data to provide location details when someone makes an emergency call with the app. This gives accurate information and provides first responders with a better idea of where they need to go. Students can additionally redo the application to send alerts to their family, professors or friends if a crisis arises.

“Campus Consortium is glad to award this grant to Green River College to implement the campus safety platform at a reduced cost. The need of a dedicated safety measure is essential; therefore, the campus safety app will be for the institution and will provide the students with a safer campus experience,” said John Wannemacher, Executive Director of Campus Consortium.
