2016-17 BE SAFE program launch

Campus Safety and Security is kicking off the 2016-17 academic year with a safety education program called “BE SAFE.” Our primary messages to students, faculty, and staff are:

  1. Walk With Me,
  2. Be Aware of Your Surroundings, and
  3. Call 911.

These primary messages will be supplemented with supportive sub-messaging in social media and posters.

You will see these messages all over campus as students move in and classes begin. If you would like to help or feature this safety program in your college, school, unit, or club, we invite you to go here and download PDFs of posters and PowerPoint slides for flat screens.  We have a variety of options and sub-messaging to meet your needs.

The best way to keep everyone safe on campus is to remind friends, students, and coworkers of these important safety tips. Thank you in advance for your collaboration.

Have a great semester and BE SAFE!
