Members of the campus community are asked to not call the Department of Public Safety so that telephone lines there can remain open for emergency calls.

These employees will be designated by their directors in Dining Services, Facilities Management, Residential and Conference Facilities, Student Health Services, Public Safety and Information Technologies.
