Tupper Named to National Campus Safety Post

Rick Tupper, Augustana's director of campus safety, has been named one of three national Directors-at-Large for the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA). His three-year term will begin in June.

A veteran of the United States Navy and a graduate of the FBI National Academy, Tupper joined Augustana in 2003. Prior to that, he served as a sergeant for the Sioux Falls Police Department.

In 2011, Tupper received the IACLEA President’s Award, an honor bestowed on a member of campus law enforcement whose efforts go above and beyond the call of duty.
