Mission Statement

The Department of Public Safety is entrusted with fostering and maintaining a safe and secure environment for the University Community to pursue their academic, professional and personal ambitions. Dedicated to supporting the educational mission of the university, we value experiential learning and emphasize conflict resolution in all our interactions with students. Committed to serving with professional excellence, we strive to be approachable, reliable and truly service-oriented in the performance of our duties. The department maintains strong, professional relationships with municipal police, fire and health responders to ensure continuous collaboration on emergency planning efforts and familiarity with our campus in the event of an emergency.
