Mission Statement
The University of Southern Indiana strives to create and maintain a safe and secure environment on all properties it owns, and sites it leases or manages for official activities. The University believes that members of the University community can assist in keeping themselves from harm by using safety precautions and by knowing as much as possible about the frequency and type of security breaches which occur on University property. To that end, USI Public Safety records and annually publishes statistics on crime and security matters, and the University provides timely warnings of crimes or incidents which may be considered a threat to the University community.
