Safety Initiatives & Programs

Public Safety works hard to continue safeguarding the community and to plan for the future. As a community, we are grateful for our police officers, security officers, communications professionals, and the university leadership and teams who have worked diligently to increase safety and collaborate with our city partners. Here are just a few of our recent efforts.

Student Town Halls 

In January and February, the university hosted student town halls with Temple Student Government President Gianni Quattrocchi, President Jason Wingard and Vice President for Public Safety Jennifer Griffin. Opportunities presented for students to share questions and hear responses directly from our panel.

Communication and Collaboration

Safety communications have been enhanced to improve awareness of existing efforts and to build a culture of transparency. Messages following a TUalert incident and increased information about investigations now provide up-to-date information about safety resources and how students can keep a safety mindset on and off campus. Temple maintains consistent communication with our students, faculty and staff, with an archive of messages available on University Communications.
