Georgetown University, a major international research university with nine schools, an affiliated hospital, and many highly-ranked academic programs, has a mature, layered security program. The university has more than 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students taking classes at five locations, including Washington, D.C., and Georgetown’s Qatar campus. Georgetown’s Public Safety team has developed innovative community support programs, which include a Sexual Assault Response Team (SART), Crisis Intervention Trained (CIT) Officers, and a campus-wide Active Shooter Response training program. Jay Gruber, Associate Vice-President for Public Safety and Chief Public Safety Officer at Georgetown University will — through his own experiences and storytelling — teach security leaders how to identify areas where campuses can build comprehensive, community-focused programs that limit risk, leverage technology and allow educational institutions to offer students and staff a safe place to learn and work.
