TThe University is concerned about the impact of alcohol and other drugs on the health and safety of all members of the campus community. Through the use of new, evidence-based strategies the campus aims to reduce the negative consequences of unsafe and illegal alcohol and drug use.
Women can get self-defense training on campus through the CalRAD program, a partnership between Gender Equity Resource Center, Cal Recreational Sports, Office of Student Development, and UCPD. CalRAD's Basic Physical Defense training follows the Rape Aggression Defense Systems model, a realistic approach that begins with tactics such as awareness, risk reduction and risk avoidance, then progresses to the basics of hands-on self-defense techniques. RAD aims to make self-defense a viable consideration for the woman who is attacked.
How long does it take?
If a laptop is stolen, the loss of control of data could be just as disruptive as the loss of property. UCPD offers these recommendations to prevent laptop thefts, aid in the recovery of lost or stolen laptops, and control access to sensitive data.
Most thefts on campus are crimes of opportunity. Laptop theft is 99.9% preventable. Keep your laptop under your control at all times.
- Do not walk away from it, even for “a minute.” If you must sleep while you’re studying in the library, sleep on the laptop!
- Do not leave valuables in common areas.
We strongly encourage you to use UCPD’s safety services when traveling to your location, but there may be times when you cannot.
When walking at night
- Always be alert and aware of your surroundings.
- Plan your route for safety, and walk with friends or a group whenever possible.
- Use identified well-lighted and well-traveled routes.
If you sense danger
- Move away from the threat: Cross the street and increase your pace.
- Join a group of people nearby.
If a threatening situation seems imminent
Fire safety is everyone’s responsibility and your preparation, awareness, and response to fire can save lives and valuable property. If you attend classes or work on campus, you must follow all fire safety regulations as set by the State, as well as all Campus fire safety rules.
The Hayward fault passes through the eastern side of campus and geologists estimate that an earthquake on that fault is highly probable within the next 20 years. After any disaster, emergency resources can be quickly overwhelmed, so the campus community must be prepared to be self-sufficient until outside help arrives, perhaps for up to 5 days. Each individual should prepare his or her family, home, and workplace for this eventuality.
