- If living on main campus:
- Lock your door and alarm the security system when you leave the apartments at MCCN campus.
- Take your key with you when you leave the apartment.
- Do not loan your key to anyone.
- Do not prop doors open.
- Report any potential fire hazards or broken equipment to the MCF Safety & Security.
Emergency Notification System
The College maintains multiple systems for alerting the College community about campus emergencies and will use some or all of those systems, depending on the circumstances. The College provides emergency notification services to the College community via cell phone text messages and email. These notices may also be posted to the College website and social media. MCCN Rave Alert System is available to all students, faculty, and staff. All faculty, staff, and student emails and phone numbers are automatically registered in the system. Participants may opt-out of receiving alerts by contacting the Director of Compliance and Safety.
Emergency messaging will primarily be used only for those situations that pose an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees on campus or for the closing of an entire campus or cancellation of classes.
Annual Campus Safety and Fire Report
The Clery Act is a federal law that promotes campus safety by ensuring that students, employees, parents and the community are well-informed about public safety and crime prevention matters at colleges and universities.
By October 1 of each year, colleges and universities must submit a summary of required information which includes the past three calendar years of campus crime statistics in specified crime categories, fire safety data and certain safety policy statements.
The institution must make this report available to the campus community including current and prospective students and families, faculty and staff.
