Post-Master’s Certificate in School Safety, Security, Emergency Management

The school safety, school security, and school emergency management certificate is designed to allow learners to focus on the three areas unique to the title. Students who feel safe and secure at their school are better able to learn by engaging with the curriculum, their teachers, and their peers. This certificate offers K-12 professionals and other related emergency management or district personnel management personnel the opportunity to learn about diverse topics such as:

  • Technologies to manage safety, security, and emergencies
  • Threat assessments of people and facilities
  • Restorative justice and other alternatives to student discipline
  • How to contribute, implement, and improve school safety plans.

Further, a theoretical underpinning of these issues and the needed response will be examined. Learners will demonstrate their proficiency through a capstone project in the final certificate course.
