A Message From The Director

Public Safety Director Bob Wood

Ohio Wesleyan is committed to providing a safe living and learning environment, including open and ongoing efforts to inform the campus about safety issues.

We support community policing, which asks all members of campus to watch out for one another and help keep each other safe.

If and when an incident occurs, we will work tirelessly to secure the campus, investigate the event, take appropriate disciplinary/corrective action, and assist victims with any support needed.

We work closely with the Delaware Police and Fire departments, and appreciate their assistance in helping to protect the community.

Robert A. Wood
Director of Public Safety
