UI Shooting Yet To Prompt Changes

The murder of a University of Idaho graduate student quickly spurred security reviews at other local and regional campuses this fall, but little change has been instituted. To date, only Boise State University has signaled a policy shift, emphasizing security and safety over the privacy of its employees and students.  "(The) tragic set of events at the University of Idaho provides many lessons for us and we are carefully reviewing our policies, procedures and communication methods to ensure our system is as effective as it can be," a BSU official said in an email. "Safety and the proper assessment of concerning behavior are of the utmost importance and in the best interest of security for all"/Joel Mills, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
