Safety Spotlight Videos

The Ohio State University’s Department of Public Safety has released a new Safety Spotlight video series featuring resources available to the campus community. In response to student feedback, the series also includes self-defense tactics normally taught in our Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) classes that were postponed because of COVID-19.  Please take a moment to watch the series and to help make safety a top priority for all Buckeyes.
