Members of the Missouri Students Association, along with administrators and others from MU departments, will hold the first campus Safety Walk at 9 p.m. Wednesday, beginning at Tiger Plaza on the South Quad by MU’s College of Business.
Students and administrators will split into groups and walk around campus to locate anything that can put a student in an unsafe situation. Groups will look for how well-lit certain areas are, where emergency poles are located, how crowded areas are and how often areas are patrolled by police.
The purpose of the event is to increase safety on campus and locate areas that need improvements.
“While MU continues to be a safe campus, we want to continue doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our students,” Greg Chase of the Missouri Students Association said in a written statement. “Providing a safe campus is the number one priority for MU administrators and leads to a more conducive environment for the academic success of our students.”
