Campus Safety

In collaboration with Facility Services and Student Affairs, we seek to promote individual responsibility and respect for TIU and each other so that the goal of Christ-centered excellence can be obtained.

About Us The mission of Campus Safety and Security Services is to faithfully serve and protect the Trinity community with care and compassion in collaboration with Facility Services and Student Affairs to promote individual responsibility and respect so that the goal of Christ-centered academic excellence can be obtained. Trinity International University publishes a Crime Statistics page and keeps a Daily Fire & Crime Log. Both reports can be accessed from the menu at the bottom of this page under Campus Safety Info.
