ACPA – College Student Educators International
ACPA supports and fosters college student learning through the generation and dissemination of knowledge, which informs policies, practices and programs for student affairs professionals and the higher education community.
Association for Student Conduct Administration (ASCA) is an organization of professional educators, many of whom hold responsibility for administering standards of student conduct within colleges and universities. The membership of ASCA believes that a primary purpose for the enforcement of such standards is to maintain and strengthen the ethical climate and to promote the academic integrity of our institutions. Clearly articulated and consistently administered standards of conduct form the basis for behavioral expectations within an academic community. The enforcement of such standards should be accomplished in a manner that protects the rights, health and safety of members of that community so that they may pursue their educational goals without undue interference.
The National Center for Campus Public Safety was chartered by Congress in 2013, with bipartisan support, in the wake of recent school tragedies. The National Center will connect many campus safety entities – from campus police chiefs and security directors, to professional associations, advocacy organizations and community leaders – with one another. We will improve and expand resources to those charged with providing a safe environment for our students, faculty, teachers and staff at our nation’s schools. The National Center will fill a void by providing comprehensive, centralized resources and technical assistance and training specific to campus public safety. We will also highlight and promote best and innovative practices specific to campus public safety challenges. We look forward to connecting and working with you all in the near future.
