The mission of the MSU Police department is to support the mission of the university by providing a safe academic environment for persons and property at Midwestern State University. This is accomplished through the detection and apprehension of criminals, the utilization of community-oriented policing, and crime prevention programs in an attempt to improve the quality of life on campus and to reduce the fear of crime.
Through individual and group counseling services, consultation, and mental health educational programs, the MSU Counseling Center provides opportunities for students to know themselves as individuals, form deeper relationships with their peers, and increase their wellness.

Midwestern State University is committed to fostering a campus environment that is conducive to academic inquiry, a productive campus life, and thoughtful study and discourse. The student conduct program within the Office of Student Conduct embodies an educational and developmental process that balances the needs of individual students with the needs of the MSU community.
