Interested in Hosting the 2018 Conference?
If you are interested in hosting the 2018 Best Practice in Campus Emergency Management Conference, we are currently accepting applications. Special consideration will be given to mid-size campuses of approximately 10,000-20,000 students. However, all proposals will be considered.
Please read the following carefully. As you put your application together remember we want to know as much about you as possible. We are looking for a strong program on a campus people would like to visit. Please do not spend too much time putting together a “slick” submission package. We know you are busy and the committee wants to see the information about your campus, not your desktop publishing skills. For more information, click here.
How Did This Conference Begin?
In 2013, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga hosted its first Best Practices in Higher Education Emergency Management Conference. Attendees from across the country and Canada joined together that March to share best practices in order to generate innovative solutions to campus emergency management.
Our annual conference continues to grow and expand its reach by going "on the road" to other areas of the country. As we venture into new areas of the U.S., we hope to reach even more Higher Education Emergency Managers who will build our knowledge and share solutions they have found and implemented on their campuses.
Presentations from Past Conferences
As part of our goal of sharing best practices, we have made presentations from past conferences available for viewing. Videos of each session from the 2016 conference are currently available on YouTube.
If you have questions about the conference or these presentations, please contact Tim-Pridemore@utc.edu.
