TIPS Prevention Platform on a Higher Education Campus

Troubling gaps exist in Higher Education (colleges and universities) today, places where information and knowledge stop or don’t get shared. These gaps are missed opportunities to prevent tragedy. TIPS Prevention Platform was developed to eliminate these dangerous disconnects.

TIPS is an innovative platform of web-based tools designed to empower higher education students, parents, faculty and staff to confidentially and anonymously report potentially harmful student safety concerns, including: weapons, drug/alcohol use, gangs, harassment or intimidation, vandalism, physical/sexual assaults, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse, and others. Once reports are made, TIPS provides a central and secure system for campus personnel (student services, mental health, law enforcement, etc.) to proactively investigate the concern, objectively assess the situation, track and document all actions taken and monitor students with ongoing follow-ups and reminders.

TIPS Prevention Platform is a comprehensive risk mitigation tool for Threat Assessment Teams (TATs), organizations, and communities that ensures all incident reports and observed pre-incident indicators can get to the right people in the right places at the right time with the right documentation so people can do the right things…right now!

One student’s life lost is one too many.

One in five women in college is sexually assaulted. Suicide is now the 3rd leading cause of death for youth ages 14-24.

Prevention is needed now! Don’t wait until tragedy strikes. TIPS can help your campus become more aware of concerning behaviors and ensure the right information is shared with the right people in the right place at the right time. Ensure a safe and secure environment for all of your students and staff.

TIPS Prevention Platform has been implemented with great success in many Higher Education organizations, like large universities and small community colleges across the Nation.
