  4. 4. do  something  about  it.    As  a  group  we  are  using  available   resources  to  raise  awareness  of  the  growing  need  to  inform  and   educate  students  regarding  mobile  phone  safety  and  security  to   ensure  a  safer  learning  environment.         Through  working  together,  several  of  us  have  noted  we  each   possess  different  skills,  knowledge  and  experiences  which  when   shared  and  approached  correctly  provides  for  a  synergistic   effect.    Through  various  media,  interviews  and  an  event  to  raise   awareness,  our  hope  is  that  University  of  Houston  students  will  be   more  aware  of  their  surroundings,  especially  when  using  mobile   devices.         Within  a  few  weeks  we  intend  to  begin  raising  awareness  through   school-­‐wide  campaigns  using  print,  web  and  social  media,  and   within  a  few  months  we  expect  to  host  a  video  documentary   premiere  to  gather  attention  and  support  for  our   campaign.    Eventually  we  hope  to  spread  this  awareness  to  other   campuses.     Goals     Utilizing  viable  and  interactive  methods  for  propagating  mobile   device  safety,  we  will  strive  to  ensure  that  the  present  state  of   phone  related  thefts  on  campus  decrease  by  20%  of  its  current   rate  within  a  four-­‐month  period.  We  must  first  take  action  to   present  phone  theft  as  a  serious  issue  on  campus.  We  will   encourage  our  fellow  students  to  be  aware  of  the  existing  threats   as  well  as  to  adopt  the  methods  of  phone  safety  we  present.       In  effort  to  achieve  our  ultimate  objective  within  a  timely  and   organized  manner,  we  will  adhere  to  following  goals:  
  5. 5.   I.  Mold  Ignite  into  a  highly  effective  and  proficient  organization   • Ensure  that  all  members  have  access  to  various  means  of   communication  such  as  phone,  Internet  and  video  chat.     • Attend  weekly  meetings  if  necessary  to  ensure  that  all  team   members  are  on  the  same  page  and  understand  the  tasks  at   hand.   • For  team  members  to  be  held  accountable  for  all  tasks   assigned   • Join  a  designated  Google  Group  to  keep  track  of  updates   within  the  organization     Measurements   • Ensure  that  all  team  members  are  on  the  same  page   • Ensure  that  all  team  members  understand  the   individual  tasks  assigned,  as  well  as  the  team’s   overall  mission   • Proceed  to  perform  tasks  in  a  timely  and  well   organized  manner       a.
