SA Government is pleased to offer the Safe Ride Home Service between River Campus properties and residences after bus hours.

The program is made possible through a generous collaboration with University Security.

Joint Committee on Security

This task force is jointly chaired by the SA Security Coordinator and University Security’s Asst. Director of Operations. Charged with the mission of bettering communication between University Security staff and the student body it serves, the group holds open meetings on the River Campus monthly. The committee is made up of staff representation from University Security, and student representation from SA Government, Medical Emergency Response Team, Minority Student Advisory Board, Panhellenic Association, Multicultural Greek Council, Interfraternity Council, Residential Life, Athletics, and Women’s Caucus. All meetings are open to the public, and publicized via the Hive website. We encourage any student with concerns, questions, or suggestions to attend.
