Initiative E, Objective 4: Improve One Stetson Communication and Commitment
Stetson Public Safety released a new app named Stetson Safety App, designed to help ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus, as well as the parents of students.
Students and faculty can expect some new enrichment and academic opportunities at Stetson University. Two new master's degrees, a new certification program and an impressive variety of undergraduate minors have been added to Stetson's academic repertoire.
In late September 2016, when Hurricane Matthew tested Stetson's emergency communication, preparedness and resolve, the university came up aces. Of the 2,000 students who live on the DeLand campus, only five ended up reporting to college officials that they had no place to go. In response, other students and people living in the community offered to take those students into their homes. Also, restoration and cleanup proved to be a cohesive team effort, with Stetson's Facilities Management Department working closely with local businesses such Duke Energy, among many others.
