Reporting Criminal Activity/Emergencies
Members of the college community are urged to report criminal activities or other emergencies on campus. Public Safety wants to help you protect yourself and your property. Public Safety can be reached at 651-631-5310 or email@example.com.
Reporting Sexual Violence
Northwestern College will not tolerate sexual harassment or sexual violence in any form. When such incidents occur, the standards of our community as well as the criminal laws of Minnesota are violated. Appropriate disciplinary action, including suspension or termination, will be taken against anyone found to have violated this policy. Persons reporting sexual assault or violence will be treated with care, concern, and confidentiality. Support, assistance, and counseling are available. Victims are encouraged to seek help by contacting any of the counselors, faculty, or student development personnel.
Northwestern College has adopted policies to maintain this standard (see Harassment Policy). The college distributes this policy to every student, faculty and staff member at least once per year. Students may obtain copies of this policy from the Student Development Office during normal business hours. Faculty and staff may obtain copies of this policy by contacting the Human Resources office. The Counseling Center provides confidential services and can be contacted during normal business hours.
Safety Awareness and Crime Prevention
It is the philosophy of the Public Safety department that we would much rather prevent crimes from occurring than react to them after the fact. Safety awareness and crime prevention is our primary vehicle for accomplishing this goal. This is based on the dual concepts of eliminating or minimizing criminal opportunities whenever possible and encouraging community members and guests to be responsible for their own safety and security and the safety and security of others.
