Campus Refresh Project

During the fall semester, Operations, Planning, & Construction (OPC) has been working on the Campus Refresh Project which involves repainting buildings and planting new landscapes. OP&C just recently finished repainting the buildings along Santa Barbara Street and are starting on the landscaping in that area. OP&C plans to continue this project on University Drive in the upcoming weeks. With new paint and landscaping, the campus will have a rejuvenated feeling that students, staff and faculty will be sure to notice.

CI Police partners with WeTip

CI’s Police Department is partnered with the non-profit organization WeTip for reporting anonymous crimes that may occur here on campus.  WeTip contact can be made by phone at 1(800)78-CRIME or online at

To Report a Crime:

1. Contact WeTip; the first words you will hear from the tip operator will be, “This is the WeTip crime line.  Please do not give your name.” A code name and number is assigned to each caller, who will remain absolutely anonymous.

2. The WeTip operator will take the information and pass it on to appropriate law enforcement officials who then conduct their own investigation.  Only calls made directly to WeTip will be eligible for a cash reward.

3. Up to $1,000 cash will be given upon verified reports from law enforcement that WeTip information was received prior to the arrest and that the tip resulted in an arrest and conviction, and will depend upon the importance of the crime solved.  The caller’s identity will never be known to WeTip or law enforcement. No personal contact is ever made with the original caller.

For more information, please contact Cpl. Kevin Medley, Crime Prevention Coordinator, at ext. 8444 or
