Te AIM software is a comprehensive accommodation, appointment, and case management software designed to empower departments to achieve the following: 100% paperless; allows students and staff to access from one physical location; AIM is Section 508 compliant; and has built-in security protocols to keep student information secure and accessible only to those who have an educational need to know in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Government Relations

Student-Focused Legislative Visits Each semester, one of the academic colleges selects student representatives for a visit with state policymakers in Columbus, Ohio. To date, students from CESTA, CHAS, and most recently, COB, have participated. Meetings are scheduled with local elected officials, the governor’s office, and the Ohio Department of Higher Education in an effort to familiarize decision-makers with our students and the University’s academic offerings.

Central State University Police Department Te CSU Police Department and the Division of Finance & Administration completed the installation of 400 hi-definition security cameras. Cameras allow the CSU Police Department to monitor activities all across campus – in residence halls, academic buildings, and the University Student Center – and respond quickly to disturbances. Te cameras serve as a deterrent to crime and are used to corroborate or refute breaches of security and/or the Campus Code of Conduct.

ALERTUS – Emergency Alert/Notification System Te University completed the implementation of a campus-wide emergency alert and notification system called ALERTUS. At the push of a button, the system allows the CSU Police Department, and the Greene County Dispatch to alert the campus community to potential dangerous threats of violence or other crimes. When activated, alert beacons installed in key areas on campus emit audible alarms and display messages pertaining to the threat. Te system is also connected to the National Weather Service and can be activated to alert the campus to severe weather threats.
