Campus Safety


Officer Liaison Program

In the Spring of 2015, the Department will be re-instituting its Liaison Program. This program pairs Campus Safety Officers and personnel with various groups across campus. These groups can range from Departments or Units, student clubs, staff/faculty groups, or community organizations. The purpose of the Liaison program is to provide a forum for a deeper level of engagement between Campus Safety personnel and campus groups; allowing for both parties to be involved in each other’s events & campaigns. For more information about the Liaison Program, click here.

C-Cure Access Control System

In September 2014, Campus Safety embarked on a 30 month project to add a comprehensive access control (C-Cure) security system to every exterior door on campus.  This system will consist of electric doors locks, door alarms, and proximity card readers. This system will primarily be used for after hour access control, and at some point, will replace the current Blackboard system.

You may have already begun to see new access control readers on buildings around campus.  For more information about C-Cure and how to use it, click here.
