We are excited to offer the 2020 Campus Safety and Violence Prevention KC Dr. Zenobia Lawrence Hikes Memorial Campus Safety Excellence Award.
This annual award is a special recognition given to a college or university employee who has, over a sustained period of time, advanced the quality of campus safety by supporting student affairs staff and programs, built collaboration in order to ensure a safer campus, and/or is a noted leader/scholar regarding campus safety issues.
