S.A.F.E. Response to Violence

The S.A.F.E. response to violence is an easy way to remember the actions that need to be taken in any given situation that threatens the personal safety of a member of the Coastal Carolina University community. S.A.F.E. stands for Secure, Alert, Fight, and Escape. The S.A.F.E. method is meant to empower individuals during a threatening situation and equip them with ideas and knowledge of what to do in dangerous situations by proactively providing a plan of action. This one-hour session is provided by Coastal Carolina University Department of Public Safety officers who have extensive knowledge in the areas of both law enforcement and civilian response to active shooters or armed aggressors. The session will be a mixture of both presentation and audience participation exercises that help promote the S.A.F.E. response to violence model.



The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to Coastal Carolina University and all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education, including Coastal Carolina University. As employees of Coastal Carolina University, we all must understand this law so that we properly handle protected information and remain in compliance with the law. The training module below will explain what FERPA is, what is considered an educational record, who may have legitimate access to protected information, and what rights the law grants to students regarding their educational records.
