The need to ensure the safety and security of students, faculty and staff is the foremost priority at SCAD. As such, SCAD strives to provide the university community with a safest possible environment.
SCAD has taken the following precautions to help ensure the safety of the community:
- Hand-activated emergency call boxes strategically located throughout SCAD in Savannah and Atlanta to automatically signal a 24-hour security dispatcher
- Security officers or building greeters posted at most SCAD buildings to check IDs and log in visitors
- Security staff safety-awareness programs
On both locations, an extensive shuttle service is offered to assist students with getting to and from SCAD facilities. You can follow the Bee Line online
