Safety and Security Team

The Dawson campus is manned by our on-site Safety and Security team from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Security is also on-site during all special events or late-night activities.

Dawson has campus-wide video surveillance and uses keyless entry, so buildings remain locked at all times. Upgraded signage and building identification have also been added to aid emergency personnel.
