Bryant University has long taken a proactive, comprehensive approach to supporting the whole student. This approach includes a series of digital training programs for students that are designed to create a safe and inclusive campus community.
"These programs help us build a strong community and help students navigate the their college experiences."
The quality of the University's programs has earned Bryant the Campus Prevention Network (CPN) Seal of Prevention. The designation "is awarded to institutions of higher education that have demonstrated a commitment to digital prevention programs tied to student safety, well-being, and inclusion," according to EverFi, which announced the list of recipients earlier this month. Each recipient of the seal "has taken action to create a safer, more inclusive campus through comprehensive, evidence-based digital prevention education on issues such as sexual assault, alcohol misuse, mental health, and discrimination." (A list of the 2020 awardees is available here.)
"How a student experiences life at Bryant is important to us in the Student Affairs division," said Inge-Lise Ameer, Ed.D., Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students. "We want the campus experience to be a positive learning experience in and out of the classroom. These programs help us build a strong community and help students navigate the their college experiences."
"These important and comprehensive digital education efforts, paired with the work that faculty, staff, and students do every day to reinforce the values and expectations of our community, will support us in moving through the current challenges facing our community and nation," President Ross Gittell said in an email announcing the award. "They will also help to prepare us for what comes next in the weeks ahead."
