Safety Programs and Measures
Safe Ride Program
The Department of Campus Safety and Security offers escorts
to the campus community to and from the parking lots. To arrange to have
an escort accompany you from your classroom or office to your vehicle, dial
from any college phone, or activate a nearby
red emergency call station. An escort will be dispatched by radio to meet you at
The Department of Campus Safety and Security sponsors educational programs
on a wide variety of issues related to crime prevention and personal safety.
Check with the Campus Safety and Security Office or Office of Student Life
for details on upcoming events. In addition, the Department of Campus Safety
and Security is committed to keeping the campus community informed about patterns,
trends, or incidents that pose a threat or substantial risk to our community.
Such information is typically published in special crime bulletins posted at
the office of the Department of Campus Safety and Security or other campus
media such as the campus newspaper, The Spectator.
Safety Through Environmental Design
Safety through environmental design is yet another component of effective
crime prevention. Our Maintenance and Operations Department works hard at keeping
the campus grounds well groomed and adequately lit during darkness. The campus
grounds and parking lots are lit at nightfall until 11:00 p.m. during normal
days of operation. Emergency Call Boxes and telephones are strategically located
throughout the campus for your safety.
Emergency Call Boxes
Emergency Call Boxes are outdoors in all the parking lots and adjacent to
the athletic fields. They can be found by locating the red “Call Station” towers or illuminated blue light during darkness. All of our emergency call stations
are disabilities-friendly and easy to operate. Simply follow the directions
on the call station or push the activation button for assistance. A Campus Safety
Officer will always respond to an emergency call station to assist you.
The location of our emergency call stations can be found under the parking lots
section of this publication.
Emergency Campus Telephones
Emergency Campus Telephones can be found in all of our elevators and buildings.
The telephones are marked “Emergency Telephone” and most are contained
inside a red or white metal box mounted to the wall. Simply open the box, pick
up the phone and follow the printed directions. Elevator phones will dial directly
to the Campus Safety and Security Office while other phones require you dial
the Campus Safety and Security extension (6923 or 6666). Please familiarize
yourself with the locations of the emergency phones in the areas you travel
