It comes to mind on a really dark day here in Dallas that campus “tribes” have their own protective forces, policemen and women or security guards.

These are members of the campus community, too. Fortunately, they aren’t called upon often to stop large-scale violence. But they do help with a variety of other crimes and concerns.

It’s tricky to look beyond students, because college ministry is busy. But administration, faculty, and staff are members of the campus community. Are there ways you can reach them better in the year to come? Can you raise up some students to lift up their eyes to these people?
