Special Announcement: Hoverboards are not permitted on campus because of safety and fire risks. Published policies regarding automobiles, motorcycles, mopeds, skates and skateboards are being amended to include hoverboards. Hoverboards, also known as smartboards or balance board, are being scrutinized across the country for their potential to ignite in flames. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has counted more than 20 hoverboard fires in 17 states as of January 2016. Therefore, the new Shenandoah University policy states: “The use and storage of hoverboards on campus property is not permitted because of safety risks.”

Keeping the Shenandoah University community safe and secure is our primary concern, and customer service is our number one responsibility. Shenandoah University subscribes to the “community policing” model, which means we ask everyone for help with campus safety and security issues. If you observe anything that gives you cause for concern, do not hesitate to notify the Department of Public Safety. We will promptly and professionally respond to each and every phone call or personal interaction. Public Safety officers are available seven days a week, 24 hours a day every day of the year.
As part of the Division of Student Life, the Department of Public Safety is also committed to the total learning process for Shenandoah students; we believe in our mission to “educate and inspire.” Public Safety officers are committed to helping all members of the university community make educated decisions that foster positive experiences during their journey at Shenandoah.
You can always reach the Department of Public Safety at (540) 678-4444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.In an emergency, use one of the blue emergency phone towers or, in an extreme emergency, do not hesitate to call 911 first and then DPS if possible.
I look forward to helping provide the level of professional service and education you and every member of the Shenandoah University community deserves.
