The Missouri Safety Center proves the benefits of combining an academic department with a training center, creating a hybrid unit dedicated to the safety and welfare of all citizens.
It draws together the expertise of organizations and professionals in a common effort to reduce deaths and injuries through education and awareness.
Activities include conferences, instruction, publications, public information, research and other special services.
Located on the campus of the University of Central Missouri (UCM), the Center is part of the Harmon College of Business and Professional Studies’ Community Service and Outreach Division.
The Center is staffed with professionals from a variety of safety related fields including business, education, military and law enforcement. Partnerships are a key to the Center’s success and include federal, state, and local agencies, safety advocate groups, civic organizations, business, industry, and other professional organizations.
