The Campus Safety Department offers a variety of programs revolving around issues of personal safety awareness, pro-active crime prevention issues, and community responsibility.
Seminars and workshops are held throughout the year with employee groups. Student presentations, often held in residence halls in conjunction with the department’s Adopt-a-Hall programs, also discuss topics relating to student issues of safety and security.
From dusk to dawn, escorts from and to any on-campus location are provided to members of the campus throughout the year.
Crime prevention presentations, accompanied by brochures, are offered to all resident students throughout the year. All residence halls have door code locks installed. For the safety and security of all residents, do not give the door code to anyone.
All calls received by the Campus Safety Department from a university phone, Blue Light phone, or Emergency phone are immediately identified by the telephone extension and/or location.
These emergency telephones are distinguished by the overhead blue light, are strategically located throughout the campus, and are linked directly to the Campus Safety dispatcher.
Interior emergency telephones are linked directly to the Campus Safety dispatcher and are located throughout campus.
Crime prevention presentations are offered to all campus constituents, including resident students, fraternities and sororities, faculty and staff, student government, and recognized student organizations.
A wide variety of crime prevention publications are distributed and are also available at the Campus Safety Department Office.
Security surveys are conducted of exterior lighting, perimeter security, doors, locks, and grounds.
We have a sophisticated computer enhanced alarm system that monitors a campus-wide network of fire, intrusion and duress alarms.
The Campus Safety Department works closely with design engineers regarding physical security systems and fire safety equipment when new construction or major renovations are planned on campus.
