The Aquinas College Department of Campus Safety exists to provide leadership to the Aquinas College Community in striving for a safe and secure environment in which all community members can live, learn and work.

With a community service approach, the Department strives to identify and institute programs, methods, and approaches that will enhance the protection of persons and property, the prevention of crime, and the enforcement of College policy. A truly safe campus can only be achieved through the cooperative efforts of all students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders.

By coordinating the College's efforts in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, the Campus Safety Department can achieve its commitment to the community to serve, protect and assist.
