To summon immediate assistance, to report an accident, serious injury or crime in progress, call:
*Add the IU Emergency number into your cell phone and have it near your computer - the number is (317)274-7911. This number will reach someone on campus who is more familiar with buildings and parking lots than placing a call through 911, which is taken by an Indianapolis Police Department dispatcher.
If you see something suspicious, use your best judgment and communicate to IU Police.
Escorts: The university provides safety escorts twenty-four hours a day. These are available by calling 274-SAFE (274-7233). Between 6:00 p.m. and midnight, a special vehicle is provided for this service by Parking Services. At all other times IUPUI police and security officers provide escorts on foot and by vehicle for persons concerned about their personal safety.
Active Shooter: Visit the Protect.iu.edu page to learn about active shooter scenarios and review the "Run, Hide, Fight" procedure. If you have any specific questions or need clarification, you can email our building coordinator Angel Campbell at or contact Carlos Garcia on the IUPUI campus.
All thefts or suspected break-ins, no matter how minor, should be reported to the Campus Police. The general number is 4-7911. This is the best way to minimize thefts since the Campus Police can note trends and step-up vigilance appropriately. Also, thefts will be monitored by the Dean’s office please report all thefts to Angel Campbell (4-0631).

Stay alert! – Orders issued during an emergency may modify these instructions.
Building Emergency Action Plan (PDF)
Leave your building immediately when an alarm sounds or if you are instructed to do so by authorized emergency personnel; this is required by Indiana law.
If You Cannot Evacuate (because of disability, injury, or obstruction):
Persons with Disabilities
Persons who may require assistance to evacuate a building must be provided that assistance by those trained to do so, if possible. Persons in wheel chairs should not use the elevator unless instructed to do so by the fire department. These individuals must be protected in a safe place while awaiting rescue by the fire department. They should normally be safe in a designated Place of Refuge or an interior room near the stairwell if a Room of Refuge is not designated. If an alternate stairway is available it should be used in this event. Persons with disabilities as well as others who plan to assist them should be familiar with the Emergency Evacuation Action Plan.
Notify Responders: The location of all persons who remain in a building should be relayed to responding emergency personnel.
Building Occupants take the SELB stairs to the lower level to the East side Hallway. Do NOT use elevators.
As a general rule, all building personnel should be able to identify two (2) evacuation routes from the building. The evacuation maps will contain:
In the event of emergency or disaster, warning to building personnel may come from a variety of different sources, which includes but is not limited to the following:
For help with general building repair or renovation, contact Angel Campbell at 274-0631 or email@example.com.
For emergency building repairs, contact Angel. If she is not available, please leave a message concerning the problem, then contact Campus Facility Services (CFS) at 278-1900.
Holidays: Buildings are locked. You must have a key or key card to enter the buildings. Holidays include days such as Christmas and Thanksgiving. If a holiday such as Christmas falls on a weekend, that day is treated as a holiday.
If you have a compelling reason to change the building hours on a temporary basis you must make this request through Angel Campbell (4-0631 firstname.lastname@example.org), not through the Campus Police. Campus Police will not grant these requests except through the Dean’s Office.
Submit key requests to Angel Campbell at email@example.com. Prox Cards must be approved by your department to access the SELB building. The university requires that requestor picks up new keys at the University Police Office.
Lost, misplaced or requests for locksmith should be directed to the Key Shop: 274-7289.
Always consult Angel Campbell (4-0631) before painting any room or university fixture. Do not perform any renovations, including painting, by yourself. If you paint or renovate it is likely that Campus Facilities will redo your work and charge you for it. Do not mount art work in the hallways yourself. CFS will mount artwork in the hallways for you if you have the 1 Dean’s Office permission. The Dean’s Office will almost always permit material. You may mount artwork in your own offices or office suites but must repair damages when you move out. Note that departments are responsible for painting and renovation in their own space. Departments may mount bulletin boards and cases which conform to building standards (see below) at their own expense with the permission of the Dean’s Office. To do this contact Angel Campbell who will seek approval of CFS and work with you to order the appropriate material
Note: The School of Science Dean’s office must approve all renovations within the SL, LD and SELB buildings. Departments are required to complete a Campus Facility Service Request for Service Form and submit to Angel Campbell for approval.
No flyers, signs or posters may be taped or hung on walls and windows, or other unauthorized areas. Improperly posting materials will be removed.
All such problems should be reported directly to Zone Maintenance at Communication and Customer Service Center 278-1900, not to the Dean’s Office. This will expedite follow-up on the part of Campus Facilities. Report problems to Angel Campbelll (4-0631 ) that are not adequately handled by Zone Maintenance or Building Services.
Departments are responsible for their own specific or special facilities. They must repair and maintain carpets and floor (except for cleaning and waxing), laboratory equipment, and other special built-in equipment such as growth chambers.
If your department has housekeeping concerns or problems relating to classroom maintenance (chalk, lecterns, lights, and broken chairs, for example) they should be referred to the Communication and Customer Service Center 278-1900
Good workspace tidiness will be the responsibility of ALL employees.
Only service or therapy animals are permitted in the Science buildings (SL, LD, SELB). No other animals or personal pets are permitted in Science buildings at any time.
In accordance with IUPUI campus policy effective August 14, 2006, the use and sale of any tobacco product-cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and snuff- will be prohibited on IUPUI owned, operated and /or leased property.
Complaints regarding violations of the policy should be referred to the appropriate administrative office: for faculty the Office of Academic Policies, Procedures, and Documentation; for staff, Human Resources Administration; or the students, the Office of the Dean of Students.
Contact Crystal for help figuring out what happened and why, how to correct an error, or how to monitor your account.

Staff who will be absent from work should notify their supervisor and Jeannette Jefferson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-274-0632 prior to 9:00 am. She sends a daily attendance report via email to all staff.
Working at home is not to be a regular activity for School of Science staff unless formally part of the job description or hiring arrangement. On specific occasions for valid reasons (such as health concerns, weather, etc.), staff may work from home if they have obtained prior approval to do so from their supervisor. If working at home is to be a regular occurrence then prior approval must be obtained from the supervisor and the Dean's office and the appropriate HR paperwork must be completed.
Below is a summary of important information about policies and procedures that apply to you. Please take the time to read through them in order to protect your privacy/identity, IUPUI and School of Science information. Questions? Email the School of Science IT group.
Data including Social Security numbers, Credit Card numbers, Bank Account numbers or passwords should not be stored on your computer. Identity finder is a tool that can be used to scan your computer for Critical data so that you can locate the data and remove it. Identity Finder should be installed on all office computers and should be run twice per year to be sure you do not have any vulnerable data. You can also download identity finder from iuware.iu.edu to install on your home computer.
Any device used to access IU data, which includes email, is subject to IU policies and procedures, even if the device is a personally owned phone, tablet or computer. Devices must have a minimum of a 4 character password with at least 2 unique characters. It should be set to autolock after 15 minutes and lock after failed password attempts. Encryption should be used if available. If it is used to access critical data it must be encrypted. If encryption is not available then the device should not be used to access or store this type of data.
After a dramatic increase in phishing attempts and other attempted security breaches, IU has implemented tighter security to protect critical systems such as payroll. Two factor authentication, which requires a code generated from a hardware device (such as your smartphone) in addition to your password, is now required to access your W2, W4, Direct Deposit, and other employee data. As of September 1st, two factor authentication is also required for IUIE. The two factor authentication system utilized by IU is call DUO. In the near future IU plans on requiring DUO authentication on all systems that currently use CAS authentication. Enroll in DUO or learn more about the 2-step login for all CAS logins.
A digital signature is an electronic signature that verifies that an email message originated from the signer and that it has not been altered. It ensures that a message you're reading has not been changed since it was digitally signed, and that the message was not "spoofed" (sent by an imposter) If you are reading this email with Microsoft Outlook you should see a red ribbon icon [cid:image001.jpg@01D2045D.C98CE750] which indicates the message is signed and is actually sent by me. Other email clients may indicate the signature differently. The Dean has also subscribed to this service so you can trust that any message with the digital signature notification is actually coming from him. If you would like to have your messages signed with a digital signature.
