Campus Safety

Reach Campus Police at: 325-670-1461

A safe, secure, and welcoming home away from home is a top priority for everyone at Hardin-Simmons. We achieve this with a dedicated campus police force, Title IX training for all employees, and most importantly, a commitment to God’s commandment to us as Christians: Love your neighbor as yourself.

Part of our commitment includes disclosing how well we are achieving our goals.
