With a focus on exceptional customer service, student employeees are required to undergo training and be knowledgeable in many facets concerning campus safety and community life. Students are employed in three areas of Campus Safety: community service officers (CSO), communications dispatchers, and CSO leads (Student Leadership Program). Working a minimum of 16 hours a week (CSO leads working 24), students encounter varying situations that require a sound mind, good judgment, and Christian morals.
As the only 24-hour, 7-day a week department on campus, students working for Campus Safety must have an unwavering devotion to succeed while being Christ-like in a working environment. Campus Safety prepares students for post-college careers in many ways, such as holding students accountable for daily shifts, performing specific duties, and relying on others. Students develop competency in organization, communication, and dependability through employment with Campus Safety. The development of such competencies are visible through work duties, including vehicle citations, reports, and knowledge of university rules and regulations. While patrolling the campus on foot, bike, or by car, the student community service officer’s main objective is to make his/her presence known to the community and act as the eyes and ears for Campus Safety.
