Contents IN EVERY ISSUE ON TOPIC COLLEGE INDEX 8 10 AD INDEX BEHIND THE NEWS 10 12 Balancing campus safety and civil rights-A conundrum for campus administrators: The 2001 terrorist attacks have evoked a new era of national security and anxiety. The response was sweeping security measures that have sparked a growing concern over perceived violations of individual civil rights and liberties. This national debate surrounding the tension between security and individual privacy can be especially complex when played out on the university campus. Hiring and contracting to avoid discrimination: Safe hiring and safe contracting programs are an important part of college operations. These issues may become more difficult, though, when they are associated with employee hiring or contractor selection processes and the accompanying consideration of various risks, particularly those related to previous criminal behaviors. It can be further complicated by the fact that access to students, faculty and secure facilities must also be considered in the evaluation. In these cases, attention needs to be paid to potential reputational, financial and/or legal risks. Strategies for mobile success in higher education: Analysts say that more than 60 percent of prospective college students will be first introduced to a university through their mobile device. In a recent survey, 76 percent of incoming freshmen indicated that they use a smartphone and that number is expected to only go up. These students are part of the mobile-only generation, which presents schools with a valuable tool to reach them. Follow these best practices to help get your mobile project off the ground quickly and successfully. 12 INSIDE LOOK: Coming later in 2014: Campus retail, recreation centers @universitybiz STAY CONNECTED Sign up for the UB Daily and other newsletters at University Business, volume 17, number 3 (ISSN: 1097-6671), is published 12 times per year.
