Campus Community Safety

The University of Washington is dedicated to a safe learning, teaching, research and visitor environment in a diverse community that values compassion and belonging.

The Division of Campus Community Safety leads planning, prevention, response and recovery for the UW through three key emergency and safety response units: UW Emergency Management, UW SafeCampus, and UW Police (in Seattle).

Under the leadership of Sally Clark, Vice President for Campus Community Safety, the Division provides strategic and operational support for its units, seeks opportunities to innovate with alternative response models, develops common standards across UW and advocates across UW for preparedness.
