Campus Safety & Security

We strive to make Indiana Tech a safe, secure, welcoming environment for learning and working. To support and promote campus safety and security:

  • We have a very thorough and effective crisis management plan.
  • Our security guards are on staff 24 hours a day, and we also have implemented extra security on weekends.
  • Our crisis management team meets regularly and also after any crisis or emergency to discuss what went right and wrong, and what could have been done differently.
  • Code blue stations that can be use to notify local police as well as campus security in emergencies are located strategically throughout the Fort Wayne campus.
