The primary mission of CAT is to provide walking companions for students, staff, and visitors; primarily during hours of darkness to midnight.
The Courtesy Assistance Team (CAT) is a student assistance program utilizing students as members. They are trained and managed by University Police services. CAT members also provide informational assistance to students, staff, and visitors. They serve as social attendants for a variety of functions held at the university. They assist the University Police by checking buildings to ensure they are secure as well as reporting on-view suspicious or criminal activity while they walk around the campus. This service is provided daily when school is in session during the evening hours and is free of charge.
