Would you like to be a part of the conversation about campus safety at DePaul? All faculty, staff, and students are  welcome to participate in the Campus Safety Summit on Thursday, Sept. 14 at noon in the Lincoln Park Student Center. RSVP here.

Safety experts from DePaul and the City of Chicago will share information and trends about campus safety and crime on and around DePaul's campuses, and attendees will break into small discussion groups. The goal of the summit is to understand the current safety environment across our campuses, connect with our community partners, and think through how our community can design our approach to safety.

“This summit is an opportunity to convene the university community and our partners from the Chicago community, and engage in conversations about how we can support each other," says President Robert L. Manuel.

​Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from and talk to university leadership, the Chicago Police commander of the 18th district, the vice president of security of the Chicago Transit Authority, the Chicago Police Department commander of mass transit and aldermen at the summit.

The gathering is one way DePaul is engaging in a conversation about safety on and around campus. Two safety reports also are scheduled to be released in January 2023 and June 2024, as well.

Come and be a part of this important discussion. The summit will take place in the Lincoln Park Student Center room 120AB from noon until 2:30 p.m. and all students, faculty and staff are invited. Registration is limited, so RSVP soon​.​
