Safety and Security
The safety and security of all members of the Bluefield University Community is a vital concern to Campus Safety. Campus Safety protects the persons and property of students, faculty, staff, and visitors by assisting law enforcement and other emergency service providers as needed and by being the first responder to emergencies of any kind on the Bluefield College campus.
Universities are generally very safe places to live, learn, and work, but are not immune to the problems that affect all segments of our society. Safety at Bluefield University is the shared responsibility of students, faculty, and staff. Ours is a close-knit community with an excellent security history. The degree to which Bluefield University is safe depends on each member of the campus community taking seriously the responsibility to protect themselves and others. It is the goal of Bluefield University and Campus Safety to make students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the University as safe as possible. To accomplish this we understand it is important to engage the entire community in the shared obligation of community safety. Through the work of Campus Safety and the Department of Student Development, the University works to provide a balance of policy enforcement and a strong presence to maintain a safe living, learning, and working community.
