New website provides student resources for safe living
A new website linked from the Student Affairs home page provides students with a broad range of safety and community living information as they return to campus this fall.
“We wanted to provide a one-stop shop where students could find information about staying safe and being good neighbours. We also wanted to publicize the many services that are available to students through Queen’s, the City of Kingston, and the local Kingston community,” says Roxy Denniston-Stewart, Associate Dean of Student Affairs.
The website is the result of collaborative efforts from members of several university departments, including Campus Security; Health, Counselling and Disability Services; the Human Rights Office; Town-Gown Relations; and ITServices.
Students visiting the site will find information about topics ranging from fire safety and property standards to social networking privacy tips and email harassment.
The site encompasses safety and safe living at home, on campus, and online, as well as personal safety topics.
Go to www.queensu.ca/studentaffairs and choose the student safety tab at the top of the page.
