SAU Security

Striving to create and maintain a safe environment conducive to the University's educational mission.

Safety and Security Office

Creating a safe environment for all

In support of the educational mission, the Security Department works in partnership with the community to proactively reduce risks to safety, respond to threats/challenges to security, enhance and maintain an environment conducive to study and growth while acknowledging the dignity of each person utilizing facilities, services, and programs at St. Ambrose University.

It is the department's philosophy that all Security Personnel should provide the highest quality of security services to all members and guests of the campus community. Each member should display only the highest standards of professionalism, conduct, and leadership while performing their assigned tasks. Every employee should work to resolve issues at the lowest level, and constantly strive to de-escalate every situation requiring our response.
