Cal Poly works to keep students safe off-campus with new program

Cal Poly tries to keeps its students safe on campus, but it's what happens off campus that can get students in trouble.

The university is offering new educational opportunities about drugs and neighborhood awareness.

Vice President of Student Affairs Keith Humphrey said he wants to ensure student safety.

Parents are notified when their student is arrested or gets a ticket, but the school wants to take further action.

Humphrey told KSBY News, "We are just looking to address chargeable things in an educational way with our students so they don't make mistakes that jeopardize their health and safety."

The new program will not affect a student's academic status.

Humphrey just wants to address smaller problems before they become bigger ones.
