All officers receive training in handling emergency situations. They are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). In case of an emergency, dial 7271 or 911.
Safety escorts are provided upon request to members of the campus community who are walking between any campus locations.
The Emergency Call-Box System is a series of boxes strategically located throughout campus to provide assistance to anyone in distress. When the call-buttons are depressed, they automatically dial into the Campus Safety Department and provide Campus Safety with the location of the call. Additionally, courtesy telephones are located outside the main entrance to each residence hall. These provide telephone access for both emergency and non-emergency contact to any campus extension.
Motor Vehicle Assistance
The Campus Safety Department will assist motorists on campus with disabled vehicles by providing battery jump starts.
A Taking Interest in your Personal Safety phone line (Ext. 7600) is available to allow members of the campus community to anonymously report incidents that affect the quality of life on campus. All information left on the T.I.P.S. line is confidential. Information that helps to identify the date, time, location and individuals involved in an incident that was witnessed would be appreciated. You can remain anonymous, or if you wish, leave your name and phone number so that a representative of Campus Safety may contact you.
Lost and Found
The Campus Safety Department and Campus Services maintain a lost-and-found service. If you find any property, take it to the Campus Safety Department Office or Campus Services. If you have lost any property, contact either department to determine if it has been turned in.
All visitors to campus are required to register with either Campus Safety, or in the case of a student’s visitors, with the residence hall office where the student resides.

Students are provided with training opportunities and safety tips in the areas of personal safety and sexual assault avoidance. In addition, security alerts are e-mailed to all students and staff whenever any information is received that may have an effect on their safety or feeling of safety.
