Emerging Issues Forums
It is essential to campus safety efforts that there be a vehicle for identifying, in concert with campus executives, emerging public safety and emergency management challenges and potential solutions. To this end, the NCCPS facilitates emerging issues forums to convene subject matter experts, practitioners, relevant professional association members, and government agency representatives to devise consensus strategies for successfully addressing identified challenges in specific topic areas. Here you will find information on previously conducted emerging issues forums.
Upcoming forum topics include policing on urban campuses, community relations, and the safety of international students. If you are interested in participating in one of the upcoming discussions, or have a topic you would like to recommend, please contact us.
