Safety and Security
Rutgers-Newark is committed to insuring safety and security on campus, while maintaining a welcoming and comfortable environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors.
We view safety and security as a collaboration between public safety professionals and all members of the campus community. All of us should be knowledgeable, not just about what to do in the event of an emergency, but about all matters of campus safety.
