Given the cumulative wealth that will be concentrated on our campus, security will be critical for the protection of students, staff, and visitors.  Accordingly, we have compiled a team of those who have expertise in not only providing security services but also devising and implementing security procedures and strategies in this type of setting.

To ensure the safety and security of our students, staff, and visitors, the identity of the members of the Security Advisory Board will be kept confidential and available to those who have the appropriate security clearance.

By way of example, meet one of the members of our Security Advisory Board:
