Office of Campus Safety Vision Statement

To provide safety, security, essential services, and other personalized assistance to the Hobart and William Smith Community in a manner that exceeds expectations.

Our Core Values

We are dedicated to the vision of service and putting people first. Students, parents, faculty, staff, visitors and members of the Geneva community are our priority. We will always make ourselves available to serve their needs, to go above and beyond and to exceed expectations.

We value the differences in people as individuals and the richness that diversity brings to our institution. At all times we will display an attitude of respect for, and the protection of, the dignity, worth and rights of all we serve. We will maintain a work environment grounded in respect, support, acceptance and personal accountability.

We will actively strive to respond to all situations and all persons in a fair, unbiased, open-minded and objective manner. We shall maintain an atmosphere of openness and transparency as our responsibility and commitment to the campus community.

We value the trust placed in our organization and its members by our campus community. We will earn that trust by being responsible for our actions, willing to acknowledge our mistakes and recognizing them as opportunities to learn, grow and improve. We will demonstrate integrity by maintaining a sound moral compass and engaging in ethical practices in our interactions with all persons.

We take pride in being members of the Hobart and William Smith community and the Office of Campus Safety. We demonstrate this pride by exhibiting a unified and professional presence in our community. We understand that working in a cooperative and collaborative way with all segments of the campus community enhances our efficiency and our ability to deliver the highest quality campus safety services.


The Office of Campus Safety maintains a safe, secure environment conducive to the educational, professional and personal growth of all members of the campus community.
