Tips for Demonstrations & Protests

USF Public Safety's priority is ensuring you feel confident in your physical, emotional and mental safety.  We understand that this is important whether you are on campus, in the greater Bay Area, or anywhere in the world. In partnership with other offices on campus, our team has prepared this guide to provide USF and non-USF resources regarding demonstrations and protests.
