MTSU Working With City To Deter Crime Spree


MTSU administration said it will remind and reinforce to students that the Code of Conduct can apply to off-campus behavior.  Local law enforcement will have the option to refer cases to the university’s Office of Judicial Affairs and Mediation Services for review.

The University will also share the city’s proposed apartment crime data website as part of its new student orientation and will encourage newcomers to look for the soon-to-be developed city safety emblem before deciding on an off-campus residence.

“Our university appreciates and shares the priority placed by Mayor McFarland and his administration for the safety of our entire community,” said MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee. “We have worked closely with the city on this issues, as well as this recent strategy, and we will continue to partner with them in implementation.”
