Campus and Community Safety

The University of Washington is dedicated to a safe learning, teaching, research and visitor environment in a diverse community that values compassion and belonging.

The Division of Campus Community Safety (launched in academic year 2022-2023) leads planning, prevention, response and recovery for the UW through three key emergency and safety response units, UW Emergency Management, UW SafeCampus, and UW Police (Seattle Campus).

Under the leadership of the Vice President for Campus Community Safety, a role currently held in interim by Sally Clark, the UW’s Director of Regional and Community Relations, the Division provides strategic and operational support for its units, seeks opportunities to innovate with alternative response models, develops common standards across UW, and advocates across UW for preparedness.

A search for candidates for the Vice President position will happen in the 2022-2023 academic year with tri-campus involvement.
