The 8th Annual Campus Safety Conferences (CSC) are intensive education and training events for those involved in protecting our nation’s schools and institutions of higher education. The events feature critical safety and security sessions for K-12 and college campuses, full-day, hands-on-learning workshops, 50+ product and solution providers, and extensive opportunities to network with campus peers from across the country.

Attendees include law enforcement, security directors, facilities directors, emergency managers, technology directors, IT managers, administrators, risk managers, mental health professionals, business managers and others responsible for the security, emergency management and public safety of our nation’s schools and universities.

The Campus Safety Conferences are presented by Campus Safety magazine and are the premier events in the industry. These events provide attendees with the resources and training they need to increase preparedness, communication and response prior to, during, and after a variety of safety and security incidents.

The theme for the 2022 Campus Safety Conferences is ‘Embracing Resilience.‘  By collaborating with our teams and our communities, we can embrace our resilience, overcome obstacles, and achieve our goal of safety and security for our students, staff and faculty.

Prospective speakers are encouraged to submit detailed proposals addressing safety and security topics facing higher education campuses and K-12 schools.
