Yufang CHEN, Yi TANG


With strong unpredictability, the social security incident has been ineffectively managed by conventional prediction methods. At the same time, the “scenario – response” has become an effective method of emergency management dealing with the social security incident in universities and colleges. The study on social security emergency in the college and university belongs to the field of emergency management, and is of basic characteristics of the social security incidents as well as campus emergencies. This paper mainly reviews from the social security emergency management in the college and university, the scenario theory, and emergency preparedness. Therefore, conclusive research of the college and university emergencies and the social security emergency helps to improve and complement the theory of emergency management and to clarify and define the meaning of campus social security incidents.
