Launched in fall 2009, the UA SafeCats Program is a proactive educational campaign that disperses information related to safety on and off campus for students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and other university community members through various avenues.
SafeCats was created in response to a UA Student Safety Survey completed in spring 2008. This program provides access to a "one-stop shop" network that brings safety to the forefront of campus life.
Available at the Dean of Students Office in the Nugent Building, these cards provide important safety information including contact numbers for UAPD and Safe Ride.
A campus-wide marketing campaign to remind and inform students of ways to stay safe and to increase awareness of the many institutional resources available to them.
In 2009, a partnership between the Dean of Students Office, Pima County Attorney's Office, and Casa de los Niños was established with the purpose of launching a campaign which provides information concerning the Tucson Safe Baby Program. The Safe Baby Program allows the anonymous transfer of a newborn baby at any local hospital, clinic or fire department station.
