Emergency Preparedness: Health and Safety
We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment to all of our faculty, staff, students and visitors of the college.
We encourage you to immediately report all emergencies, criminal and/or suspicious activities to the Campus Police Department, Counseling Center, Academic Affairs, Student Affairs or the designated on-duty Evening Facilitator. Victims and witnesses are encouraged to report criminal and/or suspicious activities on a confidential, voluntary basis through Campus Police or the Counseling Center.
We publish an annual crime report that is available by October 1st of each calendar year. Hard copies of the report may be obtained from Campus Police, Academic Affairs or Student Affairs.

Situations/incidents/persons that pose a threat to the general campus community are quickly brought to the attention of the campus community through the physical posting of crime alert bulletins in campus buildings and via electronic mail.
