Crime Prevention Tips:

  • Survivors of crime are never at fault for their victimization. It is the perpetrators of these crimes who are responsible for their actions that make our campus less safe.
  • If you see someone in need, there are ways you can safely intervene, including by being direct when safe and able, creating a distraction, or by delegating to others when help is needed.
  • If you feel threatened or uncomfortable in regards to your safety, please call 911.
