UNC Charlotte is on YouTube
LiveSafe Mobile App Available to Campus
UNC Charlotte officials are offering a free mobile device application for students, faculty and staff to instantly share safety and security concerns with the University Police and Public Safety Department. The free app, called LiveSafe, is now available as campus safety officials introduced the new technology earlier this month. Students and employees can download the free app on their smart phones and tablets through iTunes and Google Play.
Using the app, members of the campus community can share information through text, photo or video directly from their smart phones. The notifications can be made anonymously. Campus police will be able to respond to reports and monitor real-time information from a command dashboard.
Architecture Alumnus Named AIA Fellow
School of Architecture alumnus Chuck Travis was inducted into the College of Fellows by the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Election to the College of Fellows is the highest honor bestowed by AIA upon an architect in the United States. Travis joins only three other members in the North Carolina AIA as well as 147 AIA members nationwide to be awarded this prestigious designation this year.
Travis graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1982 with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture; he subsequently received a Bachelor of Architecture from N.C. State University. A principal at Housing Studio in Charlotte, Travis also is mayor of Cornelius. In 2010, he received the AIA Charlotte Service Award for his "extraordinary service to the community and profession."
