Welcome Future Laker Parents!
Message from the Director of Public Safety
I would like to welcome you to the Lake Superior State University family. Lake Superior State University Public Safety Department is part of the Student Affairs team. The Public Safety staff is dedicated to the protection of life and property while maintaining professional and courteous service to all. Through preventative patrol and educational programming, members of the Public Safety Department work with the campus community to help raise the level of awareness in learning how to remove or reduce the opportunity for crime to occur. Public Safety Officers serve in a manner that is fair, impartial, and respectful to people’s rights and freedoms.
We have four full time safety officers and several part time officers. This staff provides 24/7 coverage of our campus community. The Public Safety department is also comprised of the Student Auxiliary Officer program. Along with our full time Public Safety Officers our Student Officers respond to requests for service such as campus escorts during evening hours, day and night time campus patrols, enforcement of parking regulations, responding to requests for medical assistance among other emergency type requests and also help coordinate event security.
Our goal is to contribute to and strengthen partnerships with the LSSU students, faculty, staff, and the community to help ensure a safe learning environment that supports academic freedom, respect for the individual, tolerance, and the open exchange of ideas.
LSSU Public Safety has a close working relationship with local, county, and state law enforcement and emergency service agencies.
If you have any questions about public safety at LSSU, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 906-635-2727. You may also contact the Admissions team with your questions or for additional information by calling 906-635-2231.
