Campus Safety is pleased to announce that we are now accepting presentation proposals for next year’s Campus Safety Conferences (CSC) and Campus Safety Online Summit.

CSC 2023 presentation proposals are due November 30, 2022.

The 10th Annual Campus Safety Conferences 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.


CSC attendees include law enforcement, security directors, facilities directors, emergency managers, technology directors, IT managers, campus and district 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 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 2023 Campus Safety Conferences is ‘Prepare to Prevent.’ By sharing experiences and leading practices, we can add to our safety toolkits and make plans to prevent safety and security incidents in school districts and institutions of higher education.

Campus Safety is also working with our partners at EDspaces for a November partnership in 2023. First launched in 1996 by the Education Market Association, EDspaces in Charlotte, N.C., brings together architects, designers, administrators, and facilities managers with manufacturers, distributors, and service providers to transform learning environments and motivate students of the future. Innovation transforms learning environments, and it’s on full display at EDspaces.

Prospective speakers are encouraged to submit detailed proposals addressing safety and security topics facing higher education campuses and K-12 schools for the Campus Safety Conferences, Campus Safety Online Summit, and EDspaces, if interested. Submissions are due November 30, 2022.

    We need to encourage Hospitals to conduct semi-annual lock down drills, including off tour drills that include patients, visitors, contractors – everyone. For too long we have felt that any drill of this nature would be too disruptive in a Hospital setting. The reality is this active exercise program, coupled with annual training, will save lives. We implemented this process at the Martinsburg VAMC and have conducted drills for close to 5 years. A small team made it happen with little to no negative consequences.
