UC Community Safety Conference

Join us for the inaugural UC Community Safety Conference, where we will have two days of impactful discussions — with thought leaders in civil rights, higher education, mental health and law enforcement coming together to reimagine campus safety.

"Though we may have had different perspectives, we all agree on one thing: We must put the UC community at the heart of our safety and security practices. People must be safe and feel safe."

 Michael V. Drake, UC President

The UC Community Safety Plan aims to transform the University’s culture, policies and practices to achieve a vision of safety in which all members of the University community feel welcomed, respected and protected from harm.
