Millersville University (MU) has taken the top spot on Your Local Security’s list of the safest college campuses in Pennsylvania. The University also broke through the website’s top 10 in, “Your Guide to the Nation’s Safest College Campuses in 2019,” settling at number six overall.
This distinction reflects well on our students, faculty and staff; our officers; and our surrounding community,” says MU Police Chief Pete Anders. “The police department is intentional in engaging with students on a daily basis. We use the community policing model where officers are on foot, on bikes and in the residence halls to create partnerships that make all feel welcome and safe while on campus.”
Your Local Security identified MU’s trained police officers, counselors, Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) and campus-wide safety app, LiveSafe, as components that set our campus apart from others.
“The University values safety beyond our community policing,” says Anders. “From the emphasis on safety on our website to the work of our BIT team, and the numerous faculty and staff who support our students and officers, Millersville University holds the safety of our campus community as a top priority.”
Sister schools, Clarion University of Pennsylvania and Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, were ranked at number 16 and 19 respectively on the list.
