Welcome to the Commission for Campus Safety and Emergency Preparedness (CCSEP) We're currently accepting nominations for our Directorate Board positions!  For more information, click HERE.

The ACPA Commission for Campus Safety and Emergency Preparedness (CCSEP) was formed as a means to advance and respond to the need for formalized conversations around crisis response, campus protocol, and emergency management on our campuses. Since our formation, our group has worked to become an informed voice on campus safety and emergency preparedness as these issues intersect with student affairs and the strategic objectives of ACPA.

Our group’s main goals and objectives are and continue to be:

  1. Contributing to knowledge and best practices
  2. Providing practical skills
  3. Offering professional development opportunities around topics of campus safety and emergency preparedness

Our efforts to meet these goals are multi-faceted and include research, convention opportunities, and of course, assisting in response to many of the timely issues that arise on our campuses and communities around these topics.

Campus safety and emergency preparedness efforts affect many of our roles in student affairs and thus, we welcome all members to get involved and connected with our work. Professionals working in the following areas may find particular benefits in joining: Housing and Residential Life, Campus Safety, Dean of Students, Risk Management, Faculty Members, Human Resources, Facilities and Operations, Student Unions, and Counseling Services.

If you would like to get connected, please reach out, follow us on Twitter @acpa_ccsep, or email our leadership below.  You can also find about more about how to get involved by clicking HERE.
