Crime Prevention

Members of the campus community are urged to secure their valuables and be aware of their surroundings. To assist in this endeavor, the Hilbert Campus Safety Department holds educational programs each semester on a variety of topics, including personal safety awareness and security, rape prevention awareness training, and anti-theft programs. Information on safety and security is provided on request to students and employees regularly via seminars, videos, posters, brochures and college and student newspapers. Safety services available on campus include campus escort, rape counseling, mental health services, and emergency medical and operation identification. Services available through campus safety throughout the year include motorist assistance and lost and found.

The physical plant department maintains the campus buildings and grounds with a concern for safety and security.
