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.

Annual safety and security reports

Campus Safety Report and Fire Safety Report Download the 2010-2012 fire safety report (PDF) and review the 2010-12 Clery Act campus crime statistics.

Each report includes specific statistics on safety on and around campus and on public property immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The fire report also includes institutional policies on fire safety.

Clery Act information

These reports are updated online in September of each academic 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.
