Campus Safety and Security

EMU strives to maintain a safe campus environment in which to live, learn, and work. Though emergencies and incidents of serious crime are relatively few at EMU, it is crucial that all members of the campus community recognize reportable incidents and understand the procedures for reporting such incidents to appropriate persons.

Reporting Crime

Witnesses and victims of a campus crime or emergency, as well as anyone who is suspicious of people or situations on campus, are urged to use the security and safety incident report form

Clery Act Information

The campus safety and security report is updated online by October 1 each year in accordance with “The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act,” a federal statute that requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their campuses.

Crisis Communication on Campus

EMU’s security programs include awareness seminars for all students, through training of residential-life staff, and campus security personnel. When there are security related incidents that the public should be aware of, the vice president for student life and/or the director of physical plant initiates a “timely alert” to the campus community through email and on the university website.
