The need for highly trained campus public safety leaders at our nation’s 7,200+ colleges and universities has never been greater. The increased threat of international and domestic terrorism, regulatory compliance requirements, and important concerns such as substance abuse and sexual/relationship violence demands that campus public safety professionals demonstrate a high degree of expertise, insight, and leadership.

New England College’s Campus Public Safety Administration concentration is the only concentration of its kind in the United States.
