The University of Southern California later this week will announce a number of enhancements to further improve what is already one of the most sophisticated and far-reaching security and safety programs in higher education.

In light of the recent tragic death of one of its graduate students, USC is now focusing on additional measures that will provide increased safety on campus and the surrounding neighborhood. In addition, the University has continued to augment safety education efforts, beginning with this summer’s orientation. This mandatory safety education will continue throughout the year, including special programming designed for international students. The university’s neighborhood security ambassadors have returned in full numbers this week as well. ­

USC leaders have been meeting with Chinese student leaders, parents and others to discuss their security concerns, and additional measures will respond to that input. University leaders will continue to consult with them and other groups to devise ways to work together to further improve safety on and around campus, including through improved mandatory safety education.

“We look forward to ongoing discussions with the students and to their active participation in helping us make these further improvements,” said Ainsley Carry, vice provost for Student Affairs. “ We will have follow-up meetings with these student leaders this week and on an ongoing basis during the academic year through university advisory committees and other settings.”

南加州大学将于本周稍晚公布多项维安增强措施,以进一步提高其在高等教育机构中已算得上是最复杂完善的警卫和安全方案。

鉴于最近该校一位研究生的惨死,南加州大学现正致力于引入额外措施来确保校园内及周围的邻近区域的安全。此外,校方也从今年夏天的新生训练开始继续加强安全教育工作。这项强制性的安全教育将持续一整年,包括专为国际学生设计的特别计划。该大学的社区安全大使也已于本周全数返回岗位。

南加州大校方高层已经会见中国学生领袖、家长和其他相关人士来讨论他们的安全问题,也将采取额外措施回应对安全的考量。校方高层将继续与他们和其他团体进行磋商以设法共同努力进一步提高校园及周边的安全,具体措施包括改善强制性安全教育。

学生事务副教务长Ainsley Carry表示:“我们期待着与学生进行讨论,并通过他们的积极参与协助我们取得进一步改善。 “我们将于本周与学生领袖开后续会议,并将于本学年借助大学咨询委员会和其契机继续保持沟通。”
