Security and General Safety
The Security and General Safety Committee shall receive suggestions and recommendations and submit each recommendation, if approved by the committee, to the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for improvement of sub-standard safety conditions in the various facilities of the University. The committee shall also encourage through educational channels, safety procedures to be practiced in the several activities of the University's everyday routine and recommend training programs for individuals in the University community. The committee shall review all matters concerning security and safety of the University, with the exception of those matters coming specifically within the purview of the standing Committee on Radiation Safety. At the end of each academic year, the Chair will submit a summary report of the committee's activities to the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
During Night Tours, typically held in the fall semesters, members walk around Grounds in darkness to assess physical safety conditions -- particularly lighting, pathways, crosswalks, and emergency phones; and physical infrastructure hazards, such as sidewalks, stairs, or railings. When the Committee is actively seeking locations to review, the survey is open here.
If you have questions about any aspect of the Security and General Safety Committee or the Night Tour, contact Security and General Safety Committee Secretary Tim Eckert.
