The Community Assistance Program (CAP)
The Community Assistance Program (CAP) is run by the Office of Governmental and Community Affairs and the Dean of Students Office. The purpose of CAP is to enhance the relationship between the wider community and Boston College’s on and off-campus students. The Off Campus Student Community Liaison leads the CAP by responding to concerns and complaints in the community to help maintain a safe, respectful neighborhood.
The BC Eagle Escort service is provided as a safety resource to the BC community. Eagle Escort can be reached at (617) 552-8888. This service is available 24 hours a day and is provided to individuals who are concerned for their personal safety while traveling in and around campus. It is provided as a public safety service and is not intended as a substitute for public transportation, the BC shuttle or local taxi services.
For most students, the last fire safety training they received was in middle school. It is important that both off-campus and on-campus students understand fire risks and know the preventative measures that could save their lives including safety tips along with smoke alarms and sprinklers.
