MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – University of Minnesota officials have announced a multi-pronged approach to promote campus safety as students return for the spring semester – after a fall in which robberies on and off campus increased.

Additional police officers and improved resources for crime victims are just some of the measures that university officials announced Tuesday.

The university is also extending the hours of some of its bus and chauffer services, and exploring ways to expand self-defense classes.

In addition, officials are changing light fixtures along University Avenue from yellow sodium bulbs to white metal halide bulbs to increase brightness. And, they are implementing a plan to limit access to buildings.

Officials are also urging university leaders to keep students engaged through various town hall meetings or other events.
