Kristina Anderson was a sophomore at Virginia Tech when she was shot twice in the back and once in the foot on April 16, 2007. In less than 12 minutes, the gunman shot and killed 11 of her classmates and one of her professors. Six years after the massacre, Anderson, 25, has dedicated herself to promoting campus safety and is part of a team that believes technology can save lives. Anderson is launching a free smartphone app called LiveSafe (available on iTunes in mid-May) to reach and alert students on campuses during emergencies, something that she wished she'd had that April morning.

An independent report released Wednesday criticizes the use of force by University of California police during the Occupy Wall Street protests at UC Berkeley last fall. The report, written by the campus' independent Police Review Board, found that officers appeared to have strayed from campus policies and norms in their use of batons against protesters and called on the university to better explain when the use of force is appropriate. "Strictly confined limits, as precise as possible, should be articulated regarding the use of force by law enforcement during any protest events," the report said.
