September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month, The Department of Public Safety and Transportation, in conjunction with our partners around campus, offers a full schedule of programming and virtual events throughout the month to enhance the safety of our campus.

The Department of Public Safety is engaged in keeping the Adelphi community safe throughout the year. It takes all of us working together to keep Adelphi a safe campus and all are encouraged, students, faculty, and staff to participate in as much programming and events as possible. Property theft prevention, rideshare (UBER, LYFT, etc) safety, active shooter survival, hazing prevention, sexual assault awareness, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and the dangers of alcohol and drugs are issues that many do not like to talk or think about but through awareness we want the Adelphi community to be mindful, not fearful.
