On behalf of the Department of Safety at Messiah University, I wish to welcome you.  Whether you are visiting as a new student, returning student, parent, alum, employee or community member/visitor, I am certain you will find information to answer any question you may have.

The Department of Safety is dedicated to the educational process by providing a safe and secure living, learning and working environment for all members of the university community.  Along with ensuring the security of all facilities, our priorities within the total organizational framework are safety, community service and serving as an information resource.  We work in cooperation with other departments and organizations to foster a positive community atmosphere.

The men and women of the Department of Safety are dedicated to the principles of integrity, service, and community involvement and maintain the campus as a safe and pleasant place in which to live, work and study.    As a department within the Division of Operations, we strive to provide a quality experience and deliver excellent customer service to our community and guests of the university.  As such, you can expect fair treatment, respectful contact and interaction, and response and follow-up that is timely and professional -- all with a courteous and positive attitude. 

A truly safe campus is an ongoing journey which can only be achieved through joint collaboration and partnership with all who join or visit our campus community.  We hope your visit to Messiah University is a memorable venture and one you or someone you know will cherish for a lifetime.
