Safety in the Whitacre College of Engineering
Maintaining a safe learning and research environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors in our laboratories, classrooms, and buildings is our top priority.
In our efforts to build a Community of Scholars in the Whitacre College of Engineering, we will endeavor to ensure that our community remains a safe place for all members.
