Oregon State University Awarded $22,495 Grant to Implement

Campus Consortium, the largest global education association of schools, colleges and universities awards Oregon State University a $22,495 Grant to implement a mobile app for students and faculty. Located in Corvallis, Oregon, Oregon State University, with 11 colleges, 15 Agricultural Experiment Stations, 35 county Extension offices, the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport and OSU-Cascades in Bend, Oregon State has a presence in every one of Oregon’s 36 counties.

"While we did have some emergency management applications that our community could utilize, we had yet to institute a safety application for our students and staff. This opportunity to apply and compete for this grant was incredibly timely and we are glad we were chosen over hundreds of applications. Having a safety app that would give a one button push to Public Safety, as well as tracking abilities to assist our community in feeling safer is what this grant and app would help us provide”, said Director of Public Safety, Suzanne Tannenbaum at Oregon State University.

The Campus Consortium Grant will enable Oregon State University to further improve the safety and security on campus. The Campus Safety App brings this functionality to your smartphone for an added sense of security both on and off campus. The application uses Wi-Fi or cellular data to provide your location data when you make an emergency call with the app. This gives far more accurate information about where you are, and therefore provides first responders with a better idea of where they need to go. Students can additionally redo the application to send alerts to their folks, gatekeepers or companions if there arises an occurrence of a crisis.

“We are happy to award Oregon State University with the Campus Safety Grant. The app is bound to make campus life much safer, which is essential for any institution to ensure student and faculty wellbeing”, states Anjli Jain, Chairman of the Campus Consortium. "We congratulate them on receiving the Campus Consortium Grant.”
