ACTION ITEM for UT STUDENTS and PARENTS
Mayor Adler and City Council are seeking YOUR input on the lighting conditions in West Campus. This survey was undertaken as a direct result of SafeHorns efforts: "Mayor Steve Adler sponsored the lighting study resolution after he met with Colton Becker – a former UT student government member who helped push the study forward – and Joell Sullivan-McNew – from the parent group SafeHorns, which was formed after Weiser’s death." Now we need YOU to speak out and be heard! Feedback is being sought from ANYONE who has an opinion on West Campus lighting, so please participate! Click HERE for the survey.
This page contains student safety resources as shared from the UT Be Safe page. Safehorns will add to this list as new resources become available.
Cases that present an immediate threat to self, others, or property should be considered an emergency and should be directed to The University of Texas Police Department (UTPD) by calling 911.
