September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month! Join us and our campus partners for a packed schedule of events to boost safety.

 National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM)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.
