You’ve Been Protecting Your Child Their Entire Lives.

Passing that baton to someone — anyone — else is not an easy thing to do.

And wanting to make sure your son or daughter is okay when they go off to college is natural as a parent. Rest assured that at Liberty University, we take your child’s safety very seriously.

Our full-service law enforcement agency continually monitors campus safety protocols and updates them as often as needed. Our student counseling services work hand-in-hand with university and local professionals to provide the holistic care that students may need.

Part of our mission of Training Champions for Christ is creating a culture where students protect one another, stand up for one another, and refuse to tolerate harassment, discrimination, or assault.

So whether it’s safeguarding campus through security measures and training or walking beside them through a painful season…

We’ll be here for your student. Even when you can’t be.
