Campus Safety Must Begin With You!

In an effort to provide a safe environment, all members of the College community are encouraged to cooperate with College policies and procedures, and to incorporate practical, commonsense safety measures into their daily activities.

Campus safety doesn't just happen. It takes the commitment and cooperation of every member of our campus community. That is why every member of the College community needs to take an active role in making the campus as safe and secure as possible. Protecting your safety and well-being is of utmost importance to the College. Campus safety must begin with you!

It is the responsibility of every member of the College community (faculty, staff and student) to immediately report any incident that occurs on the campus that is disruptive, or that causes harm, loss or damage to a person or to personal or real property. The observer of any unacceptable or offensive behavior, criminal act, medical emergency, injury to persons, theft, auto accident, fire, vandalism, or damage to buildings or equipment should report the incident immediately.
