This report presents statistics and commentary on the activities of the National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS) from July 1, 2014 to March 31, 2019.
The data and information pertain to the following types of NCCPS activities: emerging issues forums, the Virtual Professional Development Initiative (VPDI), Campus Public Safety Online, social media, resources, and the Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Institute. During the period covered in this report, the NCCPS co-hosted 27 emerging issues forums with 567 participants. The forums discussed campus public safety, emergency management challenges, and potential solutions. The NCCPS developed the VPDI in response to stakeholders' indication that their training budgets are declining in the face of the increasing need for well-trained staff. The VPDI offers self-paced training that enables participants to meet training objectives under convenient schedules. In May 2015, the NCCPS launched a free webinar series entitled Campus Public Safety Online, which has hosted 34 webinars featuring national experts on campus safety. NCCPS has used social media extensively to remain updated on issues in campus safety. In partnership with the Disaster Resilient Universities Network and the International Association of Emergency Manager Universities and Colleges Caucus, the NCCPS sponsored a nationwide study to identify emergency management program needs at institutions of higher education. The NCCPS Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Institute provides resources to college and university administrators involved in investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases. NCCPS has disseminated toolkits, guidebooks, news articles, professional development opportunities, and other resources to public safety and emergency management professionals.
