1.  Policy Statement

The daily volume of visitors to the University campus is such as to constitute a potential problem in promptly and accurately reporting facts related to accidents or to other safety or security incidents. A system of personal identification of all University personnel -- students, faculty and staff -- is essential to meeting this problem.

  1. A personal identification card, updated regularly, is issued by the University to each member of the University community.
  2. All members of the faculty, staff, or student body are required to furnish personal identification via this card upon request by any faculty member or University official, including officers of the SMU Police Department.
