The 2024 Campus Safety Conference Agenda is Here!

Campus Safety is thrilled to announce the agenda for our summer Campus Safety Conference is now live! The national event, happening July 8-10, will be held in Atlanta, Ga., at the beautiful Omni Atlanta Hotel at Centennial Park. The event offers immersive learning and extensive networking experiences and focuses on peer-to-peer presentations, hands-on workshops, panel discussions, and solution showcases.

“In 2023, Campus Safety celebrated ten years of CSC. Our events brought together representatives from 39 states and four countries from K-12 and higher education institutions,” says Dana McClay, Show Director of Campus Safety Conference. “As we look towards the next 10 years of Campus Safety Conference, we hope to continue to be a national resource of education, peer relationship building, and connectivity. The changes we have made for the 2024 event align with this goal.”

CSC strives to collaborate with presenters who have varying backgrounds and experiences and therefore offer different personal and professional perspectives. Speakers at CSC include a security director, a chief operating officer, a grant writing associate, a Title IX coordinator, a retired commander, a current police chief, a compliance director, an assistant superintendent, a public safety director, a business continuity analyst, and more.

More information on signing up will be coming soon for those registered and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • More Panel Sessions: Our 2024 schedule allows for THREE panel-style discussions, taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday. We know our audience loves to hear multiple perspectives and we believe this change will be a welcome one. Our agenda has more information on each general session event.
  • Scholars Program: New in 2024, we have introduced a scholars program for July 7 and 8. CSC will host attendees who are actively sourcing products and solutions to improve their campuses by offering exclusive networking, tailored education, and premier product showcases. Invited scholars are decision-makers in an active buying cycle or RFP process. It’s an exciting chance to meet with partners, get your questions answered, and find a solution that works for your campus’ needs. We invite you to apply for 2024’s inaugural program
  • More Solutions: Finally, we have left more time in our schedule for visits with our elite group of CSC sponsors. Over 50 manufacturers, integrators, and solution providers will complement the education you receive to amplify your safety plans for 2024 and the years to come.
