The personal safety and security of each student, faculty, and staff member is both an individual and community concern. While the university strives to provide a campus environment free of undue risks to persons and property, it is each person's responsibility to pay attention to his or her surroundings, to avoid hazardous situations, and to exercise his or her own best judgment to maintain personal safety and well-being. In addition, each member of the community must call attention to conditions or situations that threaten the safety and security of others by contacting the Lawrence safety department, 920-832-6999.
Campus safety officers carry cell phones and pagers. They patrol the campus 24 hours a day and will respond to requests placed by dialing 920-832-6999. Although their chief functions are to assist members of the community on campus and to maintain the security of university facilities, they also act as the "eyes of the campus," noting safety concerns and unusual situations in daily reports for follow-up by university personnel. They can also contact the Appleton police department and will work cooperatively with local authorities should the need arise.
