At Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, the safety and welfare of all Seminary community members and guests are the highest priority for the Academic Dean’s Office. With the support of many other departments we constantly strive to maintain a safe and secure environment for the Seminary to accomplish its educational mission.

Because no campus is immune from crime, Gordon-Conwell has developed a series of policies and procedures to enhance the safety and security of the Seminary community. However, we must also enlist support of the Gordon-Conwell community if our efforts are to succeed.

The cooperation and active involvement of all students, faculty and staff members is an absolute necessity if any campus safety and security program is to succeed. All members of the Seminary community must assume responsibility for their own personal safety and the security of their personal belongings by taking simple, common sense precautions.

Please take the time to look at the information below.

We, the Department of Public Safety, Campus Safety, contribute to the fulfillment of the mission of the seminary by establishing and maintaining a safe environment for all people within our campus. We accomplish this through the protection of life and property, the preservation of peace, order and safety, and oversight of the community’s compliance with all laws, ordinances and seminary policies.

As a member of the Student Life Services team, we assist students and staff in the formation of their Christian character by encouraging their sense of communal and civic responsibilities.

Service to our students is our primary focus. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life by investigating problems and incidents, seeking solutions and fostering a sense of security on our campus. We nurture the trust of our
