The University of Iowa

Community Outreach

Our Community Outreach Officers help bridge the gap between campus and the department by developing relationships with students, faculty, and staff to help further the department's mission to promote a safe learning environment for all students and maintain a safe working environment for all employees.

They are happy to attend events held by student groups, provide safety training, and conduct security assessments of buildings or work spaces.
