The Role of IT in Campus Security and Emergency Management

Thursday, October 16, 2008


Vulnerabilities on the campuses of our nation's colleges and universities have come into sharp focus in recent years, dominating headlines with what seems like increasing frequency and greater consequence. In August 2008, campus leaders in safety, security, emergency management, and information technology met in Washington, D.C., to put emergency management firmly at the top of the agenda during an EDUCAUSE Summit on "The Role of IT in Campus Security and Emergency Management." Brought together by a common purpose to explore proactive approaches to emergency management and a desire to learn about emerging technologies on the horizon, the group spent two days dissecting the state of emergency management at our nation's colleges and universities and sharing resources from their own institutions. This white paper outlines the results of the initial summit and presents key findings from two days of group brainstorming and collaboration.
