Campus Safety Ambassadors

The goal of Campus Safety Ambassadors, or CSAs, is to provide an opportunity for student employees to contribute to the safety, security, and well being of the Iowa State University community. These students ensure the safety of community members, facilitate the security of academic buildings, enhance the quality of the Iowa State experience, and provide student employees with positive law enforcement role models.
