Campus Safety

According to FBI statistics, Baldwin Wallace has one of the safest campuses in Ohio. The health and safety of our campus community is a top priority at BW and we are committed to maintaining a safe campus environment for learning and living. We have a close relationship with the Berea Police Department and other local safety services.

A number of systems are in place to make certain students are as safe as possible:

  • RAVE Alerts provide information regarding severe weather, building and campus closures and other important situations. Text alerts are automatically sent to all students who have provided a cell number to the University. In addition, students receive email alerts and alerts are posted on campus displays, computer monitors and on Family members interested in receiving text alerts can sign up at
  • RAVE Guardian App, debuting on campus this fall, provides an additional level of security. The app allows students to call Safety and Security directly and designate guardians who will be part of a safety network. Through this network, students can alert guardians of their plans (such as departures and arrivals). A profile section on the app enables students to add important health and other information that would be readily available to BW dispatchers responding to a call. Details about RAVE Guardian are available at
  • Campus Safety and Security is staffed 24/7. "Blue Light emergency phones can be found at key locations around campus and walking escort services is available.
  • In addition, Safety and Security provides services for room and vehicle lock outs, battery jumps and after-hours maintenance emergencies.
