Complete it in a semester or a day
The 32 NCSI self-assessment tool is a confidential, self-paced, online program that looks at key areas of campus safety. It will empower you and your colleagues to assess campus safety policies and procedures on your campus. The entire process is self-paced, but schools could complete the self-assessment in as little as a day.
It’s designed to be managed by one person at your school (e.g., a “32 NCSI Coordinator”) who then coordinates with the frontline practitioners (32 NCSI Participants) of each of these areas of campus safety. This will help each assessment be completed as accurately as possible and in a timely manner – an estimated 30 to 60 minutes for each assessment. Each instrument may be saved during the process and completed at a pace that is comfortable for each individual Participant.
Some Participants may complete more than one online self-assessment instrument, but ideally completion of the program should be spread among as many specialized practitioners as possible. This will aid in having the person most familiar with each issue providing the information, and limit the amount of time individual Participants expend on the program.
We encourage Participants to collaborate among themselves and with other colleagues when they have overlapping responsibilities and need information which may not be readily available.
Upon completion of the self-assessment, we will provide each user with a display of their results that they can retain for future reference. All personally identifiable information and answers provided will be kept strictly confidential. Each individual Participant’s results will be available only to them, the institution’s 32 NCSI Coordinator, and our technical team who maintain the online platform.
We encourage you and your colleagues to meet one-on-one and or jointly to discuss your results about where you are doing well and where you may have identified needs for attention. This website features a range of resources in each focus area which you may want to consult during this phase of the process if you have questions.
