Auraria Campus to host Safe Campus Night

By Staff

In an effort to promote community safety on campus, the Auraria Police Department has announced Safe Campus Night, a tri-institutional event in conjunction with the Auraria Higher Education Center, on Wednesday, April 7. All members of the campus community are encouraged to attend.

Interested students, faculty and staff are invited to join representatives from the Auraria Police Department, Community College of Denver, Metro State and UC Denver to discuss campus safety and to assess future safety needs. It begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Roger Braun Lounge on the main level of the Tivoli Student Union.

Auraria Police will outline safety tips for students and staff on campus. Those in attendance will then break into groups that will walk areas of the campus to determine safety issues that could be addressed. The groups will then reconvene and discuss the issues that were identified. A final list will be compiled and presented to the Office of the Executive Vice President for Administration for future consideration.

The Auraria Police Department, UC Denver Community Standards and Wellness, UC Denver Student Life, Metro State Student Activities and CCD Office of Student Life are involved in the planning and implementation of the event.
