VTV Family Outreach Foundation
The VTV Family Outreach Foundation (VTV) is a national non-profit organization, formed by the families of the victims and survivors of the April 16, 2007 mass casualty shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech.
The focus of VTV is to promote and advocate for the safety and security of the nation’s colleges and universities, along with K-12 schools, and to provide assistance and services to victims of school and college crime and their families.
The April 16 tragedy was a transformative event not only for the VTV families and the university, but also for all of higher education. A national spotlight was suddenly focused on the issue of campus safety. Timely improvements in safety became a priority for campuses across the country, as well as for state and federal policy makers. This was the stimulus that profoundly enhanced the national dialogue on campus safety.
The VTV families, and supporters are proud to have been a driving force in this national advancement of campus safety while more remains to be done. VTV has come together for the common goal of creating a living memorial by helping colleges and universities improve their campus safety.
By empowering institutions with confidential self-assessments and consumers with educational safety information, 32 NCSI is raising the standards and awareness bar in campus safety for everyone.
VTV is a profile in courage – victims and survivors showing strength and resolve that is unmatched. Out of this tragic experience will come an unparalleled standard for college and university campus safety and security. From those who have lived and learned through loss, 32 NCSI was created.
