UC San Francisco is marking National Campus Safety Awareness Month with a series of September events to educate and empower the UCSF community.

The monthlong series officially kicks off on Monday, Sept. 12, with a Campus Safety Day tabling event at Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus, in conjunction with an active shooter presentation. UCSF Police, Campus Assault Resources and Education (CARE) and other groups will be available to answer questions and also have giveaways and prizes.

UCSF Police are offering a number of trainings for faculty, staff and students – in addition to active shooter presentations, there will be classes on self-defense and first aid. The police department also will be hosting social events, such as Coffee with Cops and tabling at the weekly Mission Bay Farmers Market, to meet the community and offer safety information.
