NESSI conducts research, policy analysis and training to improve safety and security from manmade and natural disasters in the nation’s K-12 schools, institutions of higher education, and vocational, private, faith based schools and preschools. In April 2015, a partnership was developed between the UCLA based NESSI and the USC based Safe Communities Institute, recognizing the importance of a consolidated effort to maximize the effectiveness and achievement of the National Education Security Institute.
