"Identify your greatest fear and walk directly at it." - Eleanor Roosevelt


Safety involves the freedom from fear: the fear of crime, blight, natural disasters, terrorism, and unsafe working conditions. 

Partners and Projects

The University of Memphis is committed to working with surrounding neighborhoods and communities, law enforcement and government leaders, and citizen groups who are ready to tackle the safety issues that can threaten Memphis' renaissance as one of the great American cities. 

University researchers work with scientists and law enforcement agents across the region - and across the world - to keep our communities safe. 

From involvement in the creation of the successful Blue Crush program to innovative research on groundwater and fault lines, the University collaborates across many fields to enhance safety and security. 

Safe and Sound

As always, the safety and security of students, faculty, staff and neighbors is of the utmost importance to the University of Memphis.

University leaders also understand the importance of working with the broader region to reduce crime and increase safety overall.
