Campus Safety and Security Project
The Campus Safety and Security Project, launched in early 2008, is designed to assist colleges and universities in finding new ways (through policies, processes, technology, research, and promising practices) to deal with the complex task of balancing traditional open campus environments with the need for increased campus safety and security. Focused on encouraging an all-threats approach to emergency preparedness, the project is a collaborative endeavor of nine associations whose members represent the many administrative areas of the campus that need to work effectively together to safeguard the community.

Ready to Respond: Case Studies in Campus Safety and Security
The National Campus Safety and Security Project (NCSSP), led by NACUBO, sought to help colleges and universities develop comprehensive emergency management plans that address the four phases of emergency management: prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. Six institutions were selected for study based on best practices and a diversity of approaches to an array of safety and security issues. Presented in this book for the first time, these case studies offer valuable insights on safety and security practices that can be adapted for other institutions that are grappling with many of the same issues.
Results of the National Campus Safety and Security Project Survey. A comprehensive survey of the state of preparedness of our nation's colleges and universities was undertaken beginning in August 2008. Topics covered include emergency preparedness, ability to respond to threats, preventative measures, physical infrastructure, communications and systems infrastructure, behavioral and mental health, business continuity, budget and funding, and emergency management.
The National Campus Safety and Security Conference was held in Boston on June 27, 2009. Representatives from diverse institutions from across the country heard about the results of key studies and listened to panels address leadership, student involvement, communication and technology issues, and organizational structures. Interactive discussions involved all participants in sharing best practices and developing an agenda for next steps.
