Department of Public Safety

The Director's Message

Henry McLaughlinBaruch College is located in a diverse and dynamic area of New York City with many opportunities for cultural and intellectual enrichment. However, as with any urban setting, the community surrounding Baruch has problems typical of all cities. Students, faculty, and staff must, therefore, take the same safety and anti-crime precautions as do other members of the community.

The Campus Security and Public Safety Department strives to provide a safe and secure environment on the Baruch campus and within the community. Programs that include seminars on crime prevention and security procedures have been established, along with those conducted in conjunction with the New York City Police Department on subway safety, sexual assault, and confidence games. Nonetheless, each person must take the necessary measures for self-protection. Reducing personal vulnerability lessens the likelihood of becoming a crime victim.
