Community Safety

Safety Reminder

An important part of learning, teaching, and working at the University of Minnesota - Department Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences is fostering a welcoming, inclusive, and safe environment. However, in recent weeks, the University of Minnesota campus has seen an increase in crime. As a Department, we strive to create a community that is safe for all. We encourage you to review the following University Safety Tips and resources. 

Safety Tips: 

  • Be alert to your surroundings and walk with others you trust. 

  • Use the "buddy system" in and around Shevlin Hall whenever possible. 

  • Avoid texting while walking, wearing earbuds, or other activities that may cause you to be less observant. 

  • Dial 612-624-WALK for a safe walk across campus, to your vehicle, or to your home near campus. FREE. 

  • Be aware of emergency call buttons and Code Blue Emergency Telephones in the areas you travel regularly. These phones dial 911 and are answered by UMPD. The code blue phone nearest to Shevlin is located on Pillsbury and Pleasant, directly across from Eddy Hall.

  • Catch a ride on a campus shuttle bus. Several of the routes run during late night hours. Find out about all the routes. 

  • Avoid shortcuts. Take well-traveled and well-lit walkways.
