Welcome to Campus Safety

Our mission is to serve the campus community, promote and sustain a safe environment and effectively respond to campus incidents. Personal safety starts with the individual. Students and staff are encouraged to be responsible and practice good safety habits. To create and maintain the highest level of safety and security it takes a cooperative approach from both the individual (personal safety habits) and the university (campus resources and procedures). Please take a moment to review some of our campus procedures and services.
