Stanley Launches School Grant Program for Higher Ed
For every visitor to its ASIS booth, the company will pledge $50 to its Together for Safer Schools Grant Program.
ATLANTA – Stanley Security is upping the ante for its school funding initiative. For every visitor to its booth (#1911) at ASIS 2014, the company will donate $50 to the Together for Safer Schools Grant Program.
Now in its second year, Stanley started the program to help K-12 schools enhance security on campus. In 2013, nearly 1,000 schools throughout the United States were nominated to receive security products and services. Four schools were selected as winners.
As announced at ASIS 2014, this year’s effort is providing the opportunity to enhance safety and security in the nation’s approximately 4,500 higher education institutions by awarding winning schools a share of at least $500,000 in Stanley Security installed products and services. Higher education institution of all sizes, both public and private, are eligible to participate.
“We’re proud to be able to continue our Together for Safer Schools Grant Program this year by focusing on our nation’s higher education institutions,” says Kyle Gordon, director of Higher Education Market Solutions, North America, Stanley Security. “As a partner to over 2,500 colleges and universities across the U.S., we value the opportunity to learn from these institutions about how we can assist them in offering safer and more secure educational campus environments so students, faculty and staff can thrive.”
Grant winners receive consultative security services, access to the company’s Software Solutions Group (SSG), seminars for school officials on security threat assessment and advanced Clery Act training, and more. Turn-key installations available to winners can be any Stanley Security product or solution, including access control, video surveillance, fire systems, intrusion systems, mechanical and electro-mechanical door hardware, mass notification systems and other security technologies.
School officials can nominate their campus for the grant program from Oct. 7 through Nov. 18. The nomination process is conducted online at stanleysaferschools.com.
Once nominations have been finalized, students, faculty, administrators and members of the campus community can vote for their school daily via the voting Web site, SMS text messaging or Twitter. The voting will be held Jan. 19 through Feb. 12, 2015. Colleges and universities with the first and second-most votes across three tiers of campus size (under 8,000 students; 8,000-19,999 students; and over 20,000 students) will be selected as grant winners, for a total of six winners. Winners will be announced on March 3, 2015.
