Campus Safety and Security
North Park University is committed to the safety and well being of our students, faculty, and staff. Our team of professional security personnel includes an experienced director with senior-command experience and off-duty police officers from local city, suburban, and state police organizations. These women and men provide 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week security service to our campus, regularly checking in at all residence halls and campus buildings. They are a familiar presence, and work hard to know and be known as a resource by students, faculty, and staff.
The University is also prepared to facilitate calm, quick, and effective responses during emergency situations, which could range from individual safety incidences for students to campus-wide events like the loss of utilities, natural disasters, or medical epidemics. Our Emergency Management Team is committed to providing timely information and guiding emergency responses to keep our community safe.
