U of U ALERT: Reported sexual assault

The police investigation into an alleged sexual assault on campus is ongoing.


Leading the initiative on violence prevention and education

Chris Linder’s appointment is part of efforts to increase safety and reduce domestic violence.


Take the survey to make a difference

Three surveys coming this spring will help shape services and programs at the U.


Recognizing unsafe relationships

This week as both SafeU Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month come to their conclusion, red flags bearing relationship violence warning signs will be posted outside the Student Union, alongside green flags that display healthy relationship traits thanks to the Red Flag Project.


Be prepared

This fourth week of SafeU Month is focused on physical and environmental safety. The division of Emergency Management in the Department of Public Safety offers a variety of trainings and resources that help staff, students and faculty feel prepared should an emergency occur on campus.


Be an active bystander

This third week of SafeU Month is focused on mental and emotional wellness—a call to have all U students, faculty and staff feel more connected to each other and to themselves. When you’re taking care of yourself first, you can be better prepared to care for others, including through bystander intervention.


The Threat Assessment Team

Because of Fall Break, this week’s SafeU theme focuses on staff readiness, which includes building a Threat Assessment Team—a group of staff dedicated to addressing imminent threats to campus, from both inside and outside the university.


10 things to know about safety

October is SafeU Month at the U, and there will be dozens of opportunities to engage in safety awareness, education and training opportunities on campus.


Humans of the U: Brittany Kiyoko Badger

“I did not fully grasp the impact of the injustices that my ancestors experienced until I was in my 20s. I loosely knew my Japanese-Australian grandmother and her family were interned during World War II. I knew she was a single mother, raising three children in post-war Australia and living below the poverty line. I knew my mother experienced racism in her home country. However, as the child of a white-American father and an immigrant, Japanese-Australian mother, I was shielded from much of this while growing up in a middle-class neighborhood.”


October spotlight on safety

October is both SafeU Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Students, faculty and staff will have dozens of opportunities during the month to engage in safety awareness, education and training—from a student listening session on safety to workshops on diversity, bystander intervention and healthy relationships.
