The Department of Public Safety (DPS) and Parking and Transit Services play a vital role in keeping students safe and mobile as they make their way into the community. The Shaw Center collaborates with both SU departments in managing several buses of students in a typical day with routes across the city. The coordination of students, who visit city school district sites, community centers, and nonprofit organizations, takes planning and flexibility as the semester unfolds.

In partnership, Shaw Center staff and members of the Department and Public Safety’s crime prevention and community relations unit address safety concerns and familiarize students with community policing officers as part of service learning class orientations.
