Training

Campus Security and Emergency Services offers various types of training for faculty, staff and students.


R.A.D. Systems

The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) System provides women basic information on personal safety, awareness, risk reduction and avoidance. R.A.D. teaches practical defensive techniques that require no special skills. This is employed as women learn to be more aware of their surroundings. R.A.D. also offers the opportunity to test these learned skills on a real person during an optional simulated attack session.
