What is RAVE Guardian?

RAVE Guardian is a free and optional personal safety service that is available to Tulane students, faculty, and staff who have a login.

How does RAVE Guardian work?

Once you register and create a user profile, you may request a virtual safety escort by simply dialing the number and inputting the amount of time you believe it will take for you to arrive at your destination. Upon your safe arrival, simply call RAVE Guardian and deactivate the timer. If you do not deactivate the timer before it expires, TUPD will be notified and we will follow up.
