Public Safety’s self-protection program, SAFE, aims to give Drexel students, faculty and staff the practical skills, resources and knowledge you can use to increase your personal safety and protect yourself in an unsafe situation. The program focuses on your mindset, self-awareness, techniques that could assist in the event of a physical assault, and information on how and to whom you should report incidents and any safety concerns.
SAFE is split into two sessions: SAFE I and SAFE II. Due to the hands-on nature of the class, we strongly recommend that you register with a fellow Dragon. Participation in the techniques is recommended, but not required.
SAFE II begins with a quick review of SAFE I lessons. We then transition to defense from both arm grabs and body grabs, and then explore various techniques from the ground (for example: how to defend against an assailant that is sitting on top of you). SAFE II classes will be offered the fourth week of every month on Monday and Wednesday from 5–7 p.m. and cannot be taken until you have completed SAFE I.
