Welcome to St. John’s College, Santa Fe.

Our campus is a great place to live, work, and learn. We enjoy a wonderful location that is geographically and culturally diverse.

The St. John’s security team is committed to providing a safe learning and working environment for every member of this community. Your safety and well-being is this team’s highest priority and my primary concern, so our dedicated and experienced staff is available to assist this community 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We work hard to employ a community policing model, meaning that safety on our campus is an effort that involves all of us. With effective communication, exercise of good judgment, and the use of a few common-sense crime prevention and safety measures we can all be relatively assured of the safest possible experience.

Cooperation and communication are at the core of the St. John’s Security approach to safety and are key to the success of this team’s mission. You are invited to share your thoughts and ideas for improvement at any time. Community input is a critical element for continuous advancement of our shared safety goals.

This webpage is designed to inform the St. John’s community of services Campus Safety provides and to encourage safer behaviors in line with this community’s ethos. Please follow the link to join our E2 Campus alert system, and the useful “concerns” link to submit your thoughts.

During your time here I ask each of you to make considered and responsible choices, discourage careless behavior wherever prudent, and to promptly report any suspicious activity. My office is in Peterson Student Center near the dining hall, and my phone is 505-984-6125.

I look forward to meeting and working with each of you.

Thank you,
Jim Ardis
