Escorts are provided by Officers and the Student Patrol, offering escorts on foot, bikes, and by car.

If you choose to walk alone on campus, familiarize yourself with locations of the UNI Emergency Phones.
Rape Aggression Defense (RAD)
Rape Aggression Defense, or R.A.D., is a self-defense program for women based on teaching simple techniques to improve personal safety. It was originated by Lawrence N. Nadeau, a 15 year veteran of law enforcement, using techniques taught in police work, and simplifying them so his 50-year old mother could successfully execute them.
UNI Police Officers act as instructors - both for academic and physical portions of the course. It is an opportunity to learn simple techniques that will allow you to avoid danger when possible or escape as a last option.
