National Center for Campus Public Safety


The National Center’s mission is to provide useful resources and information to support safer campus communities. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is through the development and dissemination of publications pertinent to public safety, emergency management, and compliance challenges facing college and university administrators. We often work in partnership with professional associations, institutions of higher education, advocacy organizations, governmental entities, and professional services firms to produce reports, guides, and other essential documents. These free publications identify issues and challenges and provide case studies, lessons learned, promising practices, and knowledge from practitioners in the field.
