Campus Safety and Transportation

Franklin Pierce of New Hampshire
Department of Campus Safety


The Franklin Pierce University Community is dedicated to the free and open examination and exchange of ideas in the pursuit of knowledge. This requires mutual trust among its members and a common respect for the rights, dignity and integrity of each person. This ambition is embraced in the University's Student Code of Conduct and the Honor Code. 

Franklin Pierce University is located in the Town of Rindge, a quiet rural community. Because of our rural environment, we are not subject to all of the problems of a city campus, however we are also not insulated from crime. We urge all community members to be aware of the potential for crime and to take steps to prevent it.

The safety and security of our students, faculty, staff and guests is a priority at Franklin Pierce University and the Campus Safety Department provides a variety of programs and services aimed at achieving this. Campus Safety operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is responsible for the protection of life and property, responding to calls for assistance, facilitating the movement of persons and vehicles around campus and documenting activity that violates state and federal laws or campus policies. We commit our efforts and design our operation toward preventing and detecting crime, providing service to students, faculty, staff and guests, ensuring compliance with the policies and regulations of the University, the ordinances of the Town of Rindge and the laws of the State of New Hampshire. No safety program, regardless of its depth or breadth, can anticipate or prevent all crime.

Franklin Pierce University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national or ethnic origin. The University is an equal opportunity employer and encourages minorities and women to apply, both in terms of employment and to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to its students. Inquiries concerning discrimination should be referred to the Director of Human Resources, DiGregorio Building at Franklin Pierce University.
