The Campus Safety, Health, and Environmental Association (CSHEMA) has named its 2017 class of winners for the Campus Leaders Who Care Award in recognition of their work to enhance laboratory and research safety at universities across the country. The Campus Leaders Award, which recognizes senior university leaders advancing health and safety issues on campus, aims to spotlight innovative research safety practices and drive broader awareness of lab safety as an oft-overlooked but critically important issue. APLU and CSHEMA partnered to recognize these outstanding programs. Kacy Redd, APLU’s Assistant Vice President for Science and Mathematics Education Policy, served as an applicant reviewer for the awards.
Last Monday, APLU and 11 other higher education associations sent a letter U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly expressing serious concerns about changes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is considering for the Student and Exchange Visitor Program, according to the Washington Post’s reporting on July 10.
The APLU Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Summit convened HBCU senior-level administrators, faculty, and other stakeholders in a forum to share ideas, tools and resources that will foster greater collective success for the strategic priorities of institutions. The summit was held June 7-8 in New Orleans, LA.
