Tell us how we are doing….

It is important for every member of our department to hear from our campus partners. Receiving kudos, suggestions and hearing the concerns of our campus community keeps our department connected and responsive to the community. To provide feedback, please email

To Report a Crime:

All students, employees and other members of the campus community, whether the victim or a witness, are encouraged to promptly report crime. If a crime occurs on or around campus, report it immediately to the Cornell Police.

For emergencies, call 911

In addition, members of the campus community should report criminal offenses to the Cornell Police for the purposes of disclosure in the Annual Security Report and for possible issuance of a timely warning.
