The Opportunity

Syracuse University was founded in 1870 as a private, coeducational institution offering programs in the physical sciences and modern languages. By 1934, the University’s academic divisions had grown to comprise 13 schools and colleges that persist to the present day. Syracuse aspires to be a pre-eminent and inclusive student-focused research university, preparing engaged citizens, scholars, and leaders for participation in a changing global society through a clearly articulated vision and mission. The University has nationally recognized programs in information studies and library science, architecture, communications, business administration, sports management, public administration, engineering, humanities, and the natural and social sciences.

Syracuse is a university of national stature and international opportunity, known for its professional programs, investment in research and innovation, and undeniable school spirit. Ranked #58 among the Best National Universities by U.S. News & World Report, Syracuse University was named, in 2021, a top producer of Fulbright Scholars.

Syracuse University’s total enrollment for fall 2021 was 21,722, which includes 14,778 undergraduate students, 6,275 graduate students and 719 law students. The student population represents all 50 U.S. states and 1275countries. Students of color represent approximately 28 percent of the total student population, and, and approximately 19 percent of the University’s undergraduate students are first-generation college students. The University employs 935 tenured and tenure-track faculty, 808 non-tenure track faculty, and 3,835 staff members.

The Position

Role of the Associate Vice President and Chief, Campus Safety & Emergency Services for Syracuse University

In 2019-20Syracuse University completed an intensive, independent review of the Department of Public Safety (DPS). This review, along with guidance from the Board of Trustees Special Committee on University Climate, Diversity and Inclusion and results from the Campus Climate Pulse Survey, provide a foundation from which the AVP/Chief in their role as the unit leader of the Campus Safety and Emergency Management Services (CSEMS) will refine and implement new initiatives, services, and training opportunities while also developing stronger and positive relationships with students and departments across campus. This position will lead a strategic, thoughtful and holistic transformation of CSEMS, ultimately resulting in enhanced community-oriented policing practices, strengthened student engagement, deeper campus partnerships, innovative updates to services, and improved communication, accountability, and transparency.

Reporting directly to the Interim Senior Vice President for Business, Finance and Administrative Services (BFAS) and Chief Financial Officer, the Associate Vice President and Chief, Campus Safety and Emergency Management Services (AVP/Chief) will be responsible for planning and directing the administrative, operational, and financial aspects of the DPS, Emergency Management, Global Safety and Support, and CSEMS Administrative and Technical Services. CSEMS serves the entire Syracuse University campus area, comprised of over 900 acres, including North Campus, South Campus, and University-controlled properties in the city of Syracuse. The new AVP/Chief will join the University after DPS recently earned accreditation from CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies), one of only 11 law enforcement agencies in New York State to meet the highest professional standards in law enforcement. Along with previous accreditation from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), DPS is one of only 27 dual CALEA/IACLEA accredited campus public safety agencies nationwide and the only one in New York State.

As a senior leader in the BFAS division, the AVP/Chief will help bring to life the vision of the division’s strategic plan, The Orange Standard, which calls for creating a signature experience unparalleled in practice and a commitment to continuous improvement in order to power the success of the University as a whole. The AVP/Chief will ensure operational excellence and a unified approach to safety, law enforcement, fire and life safety, and emergency management through exemplary service and support of a diverse campus community in which all members feel valued, respected, safe, and positioned to thrive.

This position will lead CSEMS’s interactions and collaborations with other campus divisions and departments, providing consultation, guidance and information to support the various functions of the University, including an important partnership with Enrollment and the Student Experience. As the University’s senior law enforcement officer, the AVP/Chief provides the Interim Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, the Chancellor, all executive teams/councils, and members of the Board of Trustees, with guidance related to safety, investigations, and emergency and crisis-related matters on campus and, as necessary, globally. The AVP/Chief will also serve as the primary liaison with local, state and federal law enforcement, fire, and emergency management agencies.

Overseeing approximately 230 full- and part-time employees, including approximately 79 union members, and 180 student workers, the AVP/Chief will maintain a high level of professionalism, continued professional development, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and unwavering dedication to social justice and the safety of Syracuse University’s students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

History of the Position

The current Chief Law Enforcement Officer and the current Chief of Public Safety recently announced their retirements. With the two retirements, Syracuse University was presented with an opportunity to re-evaluate the structure of the University’s safety organization. As a result, the two positions were merged into one role – Associate Vice President and Chief, Campus Safety and Emergency Management Services.

Opportunities and Expectations For Leadership

The new AVP/Chief will have the opportunity to join a talented and devoted team of campus leaders in building on the University’s distinctive strengths to sustain and accelerate its development as a student-focused world-class research university.

The new AVP/Chief will encounter the following priorities, opportunities and challenges:

Campus Community, Leadership and Engagement

  • the new AVP/Chief must be aware of and responsive to student activism efforts and have a vision to positively and successfully honor and work with students, faculty, and staff in exercising their right to free speech and expression while balancing these with considerations for the safety of the entire campus;
  • the students’ interests and the administration’s focus do not always align; the new AVP/Chief will need to work to find an appropriate balance and bridge the divide between the two;
  • Syracuse is a relational, yet complex, campus and it is expected that the AVP/Chief will be a valued and trusted partner of the Syracuse community, embracing the core mission and values of the institution;

  • the AVP/Chief will lead enhanced, consistent, and transparent communication efforts within CSEMS and between CSEMS and the entire Syracuse University community;
  • while some students may be skeptical and lack trust in institutions and individuals in positions of power or authority; the AVP/Chief must immediately begin to build trust by engaging in open conversations with the University’s many constituent groups to foster a shared understanding of the role of CSEMS and the creation of new policies and programs to better meet the needs of a diverse set of campus constituents.

Leading for Excellence

Leadership and Management of CSEMS

  • CSEMS is a large, professional agency with talented, committed officers and staff who are eager to work with new leadership and make positive progress;
  • while much attention has recently been placed on DPS, it is important that the new AVP/Chief recognize the breadth of reporting areas within CSEMS and serve as a strong advocate and leader for all components within the CSEMS portfolio;
  • a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice will be included in all recruitment, hiring and training practices;
  • continuing a positive working relationship with the officers’ union;

Institution & Location

Overview of the Department of Campus Safety & Emergency Management Services

The Department of Campus Safety and Emergency Management Services brings together the Department of Public Safety, (which includes a campus police force, Residential Community Safety, and Fire and Life Safety Services), an Office of Emergency Management, an Office of Administrative Support and Technical Security Services, and an Office of Global Safety to ensure that the Syracuse community, locally, nationally and abroad, is a safe place to live and learn.

Department of Public Safety (DPS)

DPS’s goal is to create a safe and secure living, learning, social, and cultural environment. In addition to on-and off-campus patrols, DPS supports community safety through:

  • A blue light emergency phone system installed across campus
  • The Orange ALERT crisis notification system and virtual blue light app (RAVE Guardian)
  • Walking escorts
  • Partnering with local authorities to share information, collaborate on crime prevention, and respond to community needs
  • A state-of-the-art electronic video security and door access system

Every residence hall on campus has residential community safety officers on duty day and night, secured entrances, and video security cameras. All visitors must check-in at the front desk, and overnight guests must be registered in advance. Off campus, DPS partners with the City of Syracuse Police Department on neighborhood safety patrols. Proximity to the VA Hospital, SUNY Upstate Medical University, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and the Syracuse Police Department makes DPS accessible to multiple emergency response resources.

The Department of Public Safety includes a campus law enforcement and community policing team serving the Syracuse University campus and University-controlled properties in Syracuse, New York.

DPS employs 64 sworn Public Safety Officers and 15 supporting Community Services Officers who are stationed around campus and patrol the surrounding community, and 96 Residential Community Safety Officers stationed in each of the on-campus residence halls. Public Safety Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the DPS emergency call center, which is staffed with 11 Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO)-certified public safety dispatchers, is also available around the clock to address community safety and security needs. Dispatchers are required to successfully complete a 12-week training program to further enhance their abilities to handle the specific needs of the University community.

All of DPS’s Public Safety Officers are required to successfully complete a certified campus peace officer or police academy, which includes more than 24 weeks of physical, academic, and practical training, a three-month Field Training Program, and a 13-week evaluation period. Our Public Safety Officers carry firearms when on duty, and complete firearms proficiency trainings twice every year.


The Department of Public Safety is dedicated to maintaining a safe and secure living, learning and working environment in partnership with those it serves by respectfully employing the highest professional standards and providing exceptional service to the Syracuse University community.



The Department of Public Safety’s vision is to lead in all areas of professional campus law enforcement practices, to effectively address the safety and security needs of its community, and to uphold the mission of the University by supporting an environment in which diverse social, cultural, and academic values are free to develop and prosper.

The Three Roles of the Department of Public Safety

Members of the Department of Public Safety have three primary roles. While we are a professional campus law enforcement agency and our academy training is focused on the special skills necessary to accomplish a law enforcement mission, our primary focus remains on service to our community and the safety of our students, faculty and staff, and security for our campus.

  • As a service agency, we are charged not only with protecting our students, faculty and fellow staff from harm and crime victimization, but we are also responsible to assist them and provide them with service that improves the quality of University life.
  • As a safety and security agency, we are charged with the responsibility of being the front line in homeland security as well as ensuring our properties are secure from damage or loss. We are also charged with proactively identifying safety and environmental hazards on our properties and in campus operations, and partnering with other campus departments in reporting.
  • As a campus law enforcement agency, we are responsible for keeping the peace, protecting life, reducing crime and enforcing laws, all aimed at protecting the lives of our students, faculty and staff and protecting their property as well as university property.

Organizational Chart for the Department of Public Safety can be found here.

Fire and Life Safety Services

DPS also encompasses the Fire and Life Safety Services Department (FLSS), which responds to emergency incidents, such as fire alarm activations, across campus in partnership with the City of Syracuse Fire Department. FLSS is responsible for maintaining the University’s fire detection and suppression systems and related life safety equipment. FLSS manages and conducts inspections of residential, administrative, and academic facilities to comply with federal, state, and local applicable building and fire codes and the FLSS staff are certified New York State Code Enforcement Officers.

Emergency Management

The Director of Emergency Management also works within the CSEMS. The Director is responsible for planning the University’s procedures for emergency response and works to ensure the policies and structures to facilitate appropriate and timely mobilization following an emergency incident is in place. The Director develops and engages in campus wide training efforts, drills and tabletop exercises in emergency management best practices.  The Director is also available on an on-call basis for any emergency scenarios which may arise. The Emergency Communication Center, which receives calls for law enforcement, fire, and emergency services from University community members and dispatches appropriate first responders, is directly overseen by the Director of Emergency Management.

Global Safety

With a long-standing commitment to international scholarship and engagement, Syracuse University actively promotes global travel and study beyond its main campus in Central New York. The mission of the department of Global Safety and Support is to enhance the safety of University travelers and to support those experiencing distress. Global Safety and Support serves as an expert consultant for institutional travelers and assists in preparing constituents to safely pursue scholarship and study both abroad and at University-operated sites in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Further, Global Safety and Support serves as the principal coordinator of University efforts to support faculty, staff, and students that may experience difficulties while pursuing institutional objectives away from the main campus.

Administrative Support and Technical Security

The Director of Administration and Technical Security Services acts as the executive assistant to the AVP/Chief and oversees all administrative support, budget, human resources, and security and law enforcement technology services for CSEMS. The Director manages the Video Access Security Technology Team (VASTT) which coordinates the installation, maintenance, and operation of a variety of specific forms of campus security technology. This includes the campus-wide Video Security System (VSS) and the Electronic Card Access System. Additionally, the team supports the Public Safety Officer and Parking Attendant Body-Worn Camera program and other Information Technology projects for the division. The VASTT mission is to support the safety and security of the campus community by implementing cost-effective, efficient, and state-of-the-art security technology systems.

Academic Strategic Plan

Trajectory To Excellence is Syracuse University’s Academic Strategic Plan that sets an ambitious vision for the University that builds on its strengths and leverages external opportunities. It defines the University’s vision and strategic direction, details the University’s priorities, and identifies specific actions and plans to pursue and investments that must be made.

The Academic Strategic Plan has six themes that will ultimately:

Improve the student experience through a focus on creating unsurpassed student experiences, internationalization, faculty development, and attentiveness to special populations especially veteran and military connected students.

Elevate discovery and innovation through faculty development, graduate education, support for research and entrepreneurship, and infrastructure investment.

Interim Vice Chancellor and Provost John Liu, working collaboratively with deans, faculty and staff, leads the efforts to implement the academic plan that was developed in 2014 through a campus-wide effort led by interim provost Liz Liddy and a 27-member steering committee and was approved by the Board of Trustees in April of 2015.

Invest Syracuse provides the initial funding strategy to support the Academic Strategic Plan.

To support the implementation of the Academic Strategic Plan, the Campus Framework outlines the campus growth and renewal efforts to support excellence in teaching, learning, research and scholarship, and advance our standing as an academically distinguished, student-focused, international research university.

Each school and college has developed a strategic plan in alignment with the six themes:

  • The Student Experience
  • Discovery
  • Internationalization
  • Commitment to Veterans and Military-Connected Families
  • Innovation
  • One University

Working as One University to support our diverse community to achieve all of our goals together.
