Columbus, OH (September 17, 2021)

Franklin University, one of the leading educators of working adults, has been named a recipient of the Campus Prevention Network (CPN) Seal of Prevention. Presented by Vector Solutions, the CPN Seal of Prevention is awarded to institutions of higher education that have demonstrated leadership in digital prevention programming focused on student safety, well-being, and inclusion.

Franklin continues to make its students a top-priority, by expanding their support efforts of creating and maintaining an atmosphere that is conducive to learning and personal growth and respectful of the rights of others, as stated in its Title IX and policies and procedures. As a recipient of the CPN Seal of Prevention, Franklin has worked towards creating a safer, more inclusive campus through comprehensive, evidence-based digital prevention education on issues such as sexual assault, alcohol misuse, mental health, and discrimination. The CPN Seal of Prevention establishes guidelines for discerning quality online prevention education and implementation practices, and positions prevention as central to key institutional outcomes, including: recruitment, student success, retention, and advancement.

“We are excited to name Franklin University as a 2021 recipient of the CPN Seal of Prevention,” said Marc Scheipe, CEO of Vector Solutions. “Franklin University has demonstrated a true commitment to students by investing in both their academic success inside the classroom as well as their well-being and experiences outside the classroom. We are proud to recognize Franklin University for their exemplary work helping to make college and university communities safer and more inclusive.”

The criteria for the CPN Seal of Prevention are based on the Principles of Effective Prevention Programs published by Nation, et al. (2003). Over one thousand campuses are evaluated on an annual basis to determine eligibility.
