In addition, Reinhardt's Public Safety Institute includes a Police Academy which offers P.O.S.T.

The Reinhardt Experience Extends Past the Classroom

Because how Reinhardt alumni live their lives is even more important than what they do for a living, "the Reinhardt experience" begins in the classroom, yet it includes much, much more. Athletics, clubs, leadership positions, service projects, internships and international study also shape our students. A vibrant spiritual environment, grounded in the United Methodist tradition, promotes personal growth and is welcoming to men and women of all faiths.
