Safety Ambassador Safe Walk

Peers offering a helping hand on campus.

As part of the University Police Department’s Student Safety Ambassadors program, student ambassadors patrol the campus grounds and collaborate with the police department, bridging relationships with our students. These student ambassadors also help with late-night safe walks, escorting students around the campus after dark.

About the Ambassadors Program

The safety ambassadors aren’t officers, but peers who can offer a helping hand to other students on campus. This new program has students and police working together to ensure the safety of everyone on campus.

There are currently five students employed as safety ambassadors by University Police. The department hopes to employ more student safety ambassadors and add interns to the program each year.
