Safety Related Policies & Programs
Learning About Issues that Impact your Safety
Education is the primary means for addressing issues of safety on and around campus. Each year tips on safety and security are addressed through public presentations during WOW Week, resident hall programs and printed material. Informational brochures on safety topics can be found in the Office of Student Affairs.
Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
Southwestern Christian University's alcohol, drug, and tobacco policy for students enrolled educational programs is a lifestyle policy in that it addresses the use and possession of both alcohol, drugs, and tobacco on and off campus. The use and/or possession of alcohol, illegal drugs, or tobacco on or off campus is prohibited. A student involved in violation of these policies as stated in the Student Handbook will enter the disciplinary process of the university, in addition to accountability to the legal system that may be required.
Weapons are not allowed on the SCU campus. Hand guns, shot guns, air guns, pellet guns, paint guns, rifles, hunting knives, martial arts weapons and fireworks are examples of prohibited weapons. Possession of these weapons may result in arrest and will result in a fine and confiscation of the weapon(s).
The registration of all vehicles by students plays an important roles in the safety of the SCU campus. All students are required to register their vehicles at the Office of Student Affairs and display a valid SCU parking permit in their windows.
