The “Enough Is Enough” campaign was initiated by Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education President Diana Doyle in response to the call by the former vice president for student affairs at Virginia Tech, Zenobia Lawrence Hike, to take action after the shootings on the Virginia Tech campus. The campaign recognizes that parents, students and community partners are critical allies who will further propel its initiatives to end campus and school shootings.
