A fully staffed security force that provides around-the-clock coverage of the 400-acre campus.
- A group of 20-plus Student Cadets, which provides evening escorts, assistance with university events, and extra security within the student population.
University police and security at the following numbers:
- Telephone: (302) 857-6290
