Pedestrian & Vehicular Safety & Education Program

The Operations & Facilities Management Department’s Pedestrian & Vehicular Safety & Education Program works to address the pedestrian and vehicular safety needs on the WUSM campus.

The program provides campus education services that seek to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety and to encourage more walking by creating an environment where pedestrians can walk safely and comfortably.
