The safety, security, health & wellness of our students, staff and visitors are of upmost importance to us. SVSU has a number of departments that focus solely on these aspects, providing essential programs and services to the campus community.
The SVSU Police Department is staffed by certified police officers 24/7 and participates in a mutual aid agreement with other local law enforcement agencies serving to expedite assistance from these agencies should their services be required. In addition, they have established a number of Safety & Crime Prevention Programs that focus on education and awareness.
