A new website created by UCF students provides resources for safety, both on and off campus.
Knight S.H.A.R.E. (Students Helping Advocate Resources for Emergencies) provides information and resources related to campus safety, violence prevention and emergency preparedness, and was researched and developed by UCF students.
The Knight S.H.A.R.E. website, which launched today, is sponsored by the UCF Office of Emergency Management, the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities and the UCF Police Department.
“Knight S.H.A.R.E. allows students to locate safety resources in one single location,” said Jen Fleischman, emergency plans and programs coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management.
The site includes podcasts, videos and written information about various safety topics. For example, podcasts include information about recognizing and preventing dating violence and threatening behavior, and videos include information about UCF’s emergency alert system and building emergency disaster kits.
“Since the site is designed specifically by and for students, there is tremendous opportunity for the site to grow and include additional safety topics, and we’re excited for that progression,” Fleischman said.
The site’s organizers are currently on the hunt for a photo that best displays students helping students at UCF. Photo submissions can be emailed to [email protected], and a panel will select winning photos to be used as the main image on the site’s homepage.
