Safety on Campus
The UMBC police check the blue lights and phones once a month.
There are 31 of them all around campus. A map of their locations can be found on the UMBC Police website under "Campus Map."
The police monitor lighting around campus, meaning parking lots & walkways, as does the physical plant staff. Physical plant (Facilities Management) is responsible for changing them when the need arises.
Not yet found regularly offered self-defense training on campus – various offerings occur via various efforts. (Voices Against Violence through UHS, Aikdo and Tai Kwan Do clubs at the RAC might offer, there is a PE Winter Course)
Lee Calizo & Angie Grodack did one self-defense training as a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month last year. Lee interested in offering more.
Elements of self-defense offered in some Aerobics courses.
Student groups have offered some.
Women's Center supports various efforts and provides space but does not currently offer that training as a program from the Women's center.
(UHS offers personal safety workshops)
