Campus Safety & Security

The Campus Safety Department supports university functions through two separate offices

Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S)  is a non-academic service dedicated to promoting and supporting the university’s efforts to protect human health, safety, and the environment.  EH&S provides consultation and services in areas of public health, air and water quality, worker health and safety, and chemical waste disposal.

Campus Security is dedicated to maintaining a safe and secure campus environment for work, study and research. Their purpose is to deter crimes against persons and property, and to assist the university community in planning for and responding to emergencies.

To report any emergency involving immediate danger to life or property (fire or smoke, medical issue, or crimes in progress), call 911. For all other incidents, call the campus emergency line at (509) 372-7234.
Safety or security concerns can also be reported online using the Safety Concern Report Form.  Concerns can be reported anonymously.
