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 Ryan Baggett at

Chi Beta Tau (XBT)

The Fraternity of Chi Beta Tau (XBT) is the first all male social Fraternity for Firefighters in the nation. Our organization is designed to blend the elements of Greek life with the structure and history of the Fire Service in order to provide our members with the full experience of rushing a Greek Fraternity as well as establishing a brotherhood within the Fire Program that will last a lifetime.

American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP)

EKU’s ASSP 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.
