Stalking Awareness Campaign

Stalking affects millions of people and can result in serious violence.  Each year, in recognition of National Stalking Awareness Month, SPU's Office of Safety and Security participates in an educational campaign in order to provide resources to our community on this important subject. 

Stalking is a pattern of repeated and unwanted attention, harassment, contact, or any other course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear. Stalking is a crime that can have serious consequences for the lives and well-being of victims. Given the prevalence of stalking, it is possible that someone you know has been or is being stalked. The key to addressing and stopping stalking is early intervention. Learn more about the dynamics of stalking as well as resources and support on and off campus.

  • Complete the online application via the parking portal for a parking permit. Applications will be processed bi-weekly beginning mid-September.

Self Defense Workshop for Women – Contact Safety & Security to Schedule a Workshop

This workshop is for women at SPU (students and employees).  The class is designed to teach women about the dynamics of gender based violence, the body’s natural reactions to trauma, and effective non-physical preventative measures that can help lower one’s risk of being targeted. Universal crime prevention tactics will be reviewed as well as issues specific to gender based violence. Attendees will also learn bystander intervention techniques that demonstrate how to safely intervene in potentially dangerous situations. Resources for further education and support will be available. The second portion of this class teaches physical defensive skills that are simple and easy to learn. Contact to schedule a class. Upcoming, open-registration classes will be announced here as well.
