Homeland Security & Assets Protection Leaders of Tomorrow (HALT)
Our mission is to provide members with involvement in social, civic as well as professional engagements. In an effort to arm students with the skills necessary, HALT takes learning out of the classroom and into the world of leaders currently pursuing a career in Homeland Security and Assets Protection. We also strive to promote the continuing education in areas of Homeland Security and Assets Protection to better serve our communities all while building a program that sets itself apart from the rest. For more information contact Mike Collier at Mike.Collier@eku.edu.
The Fraternity of Chi Beta Tau (XBT) is the first all male social Fraternity for Firefighters in the nation.

If you are interested in more information or would like to Rush XBT, please contact our Faculty Advisor, Andrew Tinsley at firstname.lastname@example.org
Assets Protection Society (APS)
Eastern Kentucky University's Assets Protection program began in 1977 and is the only one of its kind in the nation. The Assets Protection Society provides a way for students to network with professionals in the security industry and explore career opportunities within the field. It also helps them find jobs upon graduation.
Being a part of the Assets Protection Society builds upon what you’ll learn in the classroom and helps prepare you for a rewarding and challenging career in the fields of assets protection and security.

American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE)
EKU’s ASSE student chapter is part of a professional organization that allows students to use professional references while looking for jobs, completing homework assignments and finding scholarships. We also hold monthly meetings that feature speakers from the safety field and take tours of local industries to learn more about safety programs.
The highlight of our school year is working as volunteers at the Governor’s Safety and Health conference in Louisville, Ky. At the conference, we work as student facilitators for all classes and help with any and all needs that the conference staff has.
