JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri education officials plan to meet next week to discuss ways to make college campuses safer.
The Department of Higher Education is holding a conference on such issues as student suicide and the sending of sexually charged cell phone messages. Experts in mental health, risk assessment and law enforcement are expected to take part.
Organizers say they want to focus on ways to prevent problems before they start. The conference is to be held at the Tan-Tar-A resort at the Lake of the Ozarks.
