Security Master Plan

Executive Summary


North Carolina State University (NC State) is committed to maintaining an open campus environment that is also safe for students, faculty, staff and visitors – a commitment that requires seamless support through well-designed policies and practices, as well as robust security infrastructure.

NC State created the first Security Master Plan in 2015, a unified, comprehensive strategy to enhance university security.

This 2023 Security Master Plan provides an updated strategic, operational, and resource management tool to guide NC State as it expands the security on campus. This plan offers a contemporary look at NC State’s security practices and infrastructure. It details updated goals and strategies, as well as an implementation plan and budget to achieve key elements of the program’s vision.
