National Center for Campus Public Safety

To be a resource for campus police chiefs, directors of public safety, emergency managers, and key campus safety stakeholders.

The National Center will be a catalyst that brings together all forms of campus public safety, professional associations, advocacy organizations, community leaders, and
others to improve and expand services to those who are charged with providing a safe environment on the campuses of the nation's colleges and universities.



The National Center is envisioned as a think tank and clearinghouse for the identification and dissemination of information, research, training, and promising best practices and emerging issues in campus public safety.

The National Center will identify and examine emerging risks to campus safety and security and develop resources to combat those risks and facilitate the transfer of research to practice.
