Prevention and Security

Offering preventative training and education.

Representatives of the University join together at freshman, transfer and employee orientations to provide information on services offered by the University. Presentations include a Campus Safety 101 video, information relative to the safety of the campus and the crimes that do occur as well as in surrounding areas, and are informed of the numerous pamphlets, and security alerts available to the community.

Active shooter training is provided to all students and employees. They also receive information from Health Services and Counseling Services. Parents are also invited to an orientation conducted especially for them that gives them the opportunity to become familiar with the Department of Public Safety and Transportation, present an overview of the freshman orientation, and to address concerns and questions.

Throughout the academic year, the University offers several crime prevention programs for students including a self-defense seminar, residence hall safety offering tips on living safely on campus, commuter safety meeting offering tips on safe commuting, theft prevention, sexual assault preventive measures, hate crimes as well as other crimes. All are encouraged to view more security tips and alerts.

In addition, under the SaVE Act along with the Violence Against Women Act, the university provides training in the areas of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. Included in the training are the definitions of each, awareness, protective measures to reduce risk, recognizing warning signs of abusive behavior, consent and how to avoid potential assaults or abusive relationships.
