“Being a recipient of the Stanley Security grant would greatly enhance the security at the Mercy College of Nursing and Health Sciences,” said Bob McGlasson, Ed.D., associate provost and vice president for operations at Mercy College of Nursing and Health Sciences of SBU. “We are experiencing tremendous growth and our facilities are in use day and night. Enhancing our security not only keeps the students, faculty and staff safe but also provides opportunities for extended use of the building to greater serve our educational needs.”
The college or university with the most votes will receive the grand prize of $100,000 in Stanley Security products and services. One runner-up will receive a prize of $25,000 in Stanley Security installed products and services.
