A Mutual Respect

The success of our mission depends upon an effective working relationship between the Office of Campus & Public Safety and the UD community we serve, including students, staff, faculty, and visitors. Critical to this relationship is mutual respect. Therefore, we pledge to respect the diverse needs and interests of the community we serve and we vow to be diligent and relentless in the protection of both persons and property. In return, we ask that our partners in the community assume their individual and collective responsibilities to make the University community a safe place that fosters learning.

The three main divisions of the Office of Campus & Public Safety include Environmental Health & Safety, Emergency Preparedness, and Public Safety. Each department is staffed by highly trained professionals who are committed to the overall safety of the community we serve.

Please take the opportunity to visit each department’s web site for useful information.

Best Regards,

Skip Homiak
