College and university campuses often cover large geographic areas; sometimes even resemble small towns with the full extent of services in their vicinity (i.e., medical centers, sports complexes, residential centers, businesses); possess large financial investments in research and building new knowledge; and generate funding, employment and opportunity for the surrounding community. Each of these institutions have a commitment to maintain systematic processes, procedures, and plans for daily operations as well as ensure the general safety and welfare of over 21 million students and millions of staff, faculty, and guests that live on or visit university campuses across the nation.
