Security Advisory Committee


The Security Advisory Committee is comprised of Faculty, administration and student representatives. This committee meets to discuss security-related issues, make suggestions and recommendations, and acts as an agent through which the community concerns about security can be addressed. Permanent members of the Committee include the Dean of Students, an Assistant Dean of Students, a faculty member, the Chief of Campus Police, and the Director of Facilities Planning and Management.

Three students are chosen to serve on this committee through the student election process. Anyone who is interested in serving on this committee should speak to the president of the Student Government organization.

Any member of the college community should feel free to contact a member of the Committee with any security-related question or concern.
