What We Are

Sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, the Knights’ Watch Campus Safety Campaign was created to bring awareness to both residential and off-campus students by encouraging student, staff, and faculty to think more about their personal safety and inspire everyone to look after their peers.

The goals of the Knights’ Watch campaign are:

  • to emphasize physical safety,
  • provide programming which changes the perception that Rutgers isn’t safe, and
  • educate students on resources available on campus
