Campus Safety


Coker University is an amazing and beautiful place, made up of truly special and talented students and scholars. Campus is a small, inviting and strong knit community, but we face the same challenges as other schools across the nation. The safety, security and welfare of everyone who lives, works and visits Coker, YOUR welfare, is my primary concern.

The dedicated staff of the Office of Campus Safety and Security are here to assist you and our community in every way, but campus safety is a responsibility we all share. By working with the members of Campus Safety, keeping your eyes open, taking basic precautions and using good, sound judgement, we can all be assured of the safest possible experience.

I look forward to working with the entire Coker Community in making campus a safe and enjoyable place to live, work, study, play and visit. Your cooperation is vital in our success and I encourage you to make yourself familiar with the Campus Safety webpages and the information contained within.
