Ohio State News Alert: Keeping the Ohio State community informed about safety

President Johnson encourages use of university safety resources

Ohio State University President Kristina M. Johnson has highlighted how the university keeps students, faculty, staff and the community informed about safety developments on and near campus.

In a new video message, Johnson encouraged everyone to use the existing safety resources provided by the university.

Johnson noted that police evaluate crime on a case-by-case basis to determine what information is shared with the public, how it’s shared and when it’s shared.

The university also looks to feedback from students, routinely evaluates its processes and works with the Columbus Division of Police to ensure that information we share about nearby crime is useful to the community.

“Our public safety professionals must determine what is credible and noteworthy information, and we hold ourselves to the highest standards,” she said.

Students are encouraged to take the new online Stay Safe, Buckeyes course, which includes an educational overview of how we keep campus informed of crime and crime trends.
