Safety & Security

The safety and security of the University’s students, faculty, patients, clients, staff and visitors is of paramount importance. For that reason, the University’s trained security staff stands ready to assist everyone on our campuses and at our clinical facilities whenever there might be a problem or concern. Please contact Security personnel or the Office of Safety and Security if you have questions, concerns or need assistance.

IN AN EMERGENCY: please call 911 before you call University security.
