Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect.

HU Security Department

Chief’s Welcome 


Welcome to the Hollins University Security Department (HUSD)  Web Site.  Please browse our site and check out all of the features such as traffic and parking rules, staff members, Annual Security Report with Campus Crime Statistics, Daily Crime Log of crimes that occur on campus, and other information that impacts the Hollins University community.


The HUSD has recently adopted the CPR Program that the NYPD launched in 1996.  CPR is: Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect, and all members of the HUSD must practice CPR towards all persons when engaged in the performance of their official duties.


Our web page is a 'living' document!  There are changes, updates and new sections added regularly.  Please browse our site daily to stay on top of new information.


Each academic year we publish a new Annual Security Report with the most current Campus Crime Statistics as reported to the U.S. Department of Education.


We also update security news and crime alerts to educate and warn the community of new security practices and crime trends or problems.  Please view these pages regularly to obtain the most current information available. 

We welcome you to our community and hope that you enjoy your stay here as much as we enjoy protecting our campus.
