Safety Information for Parents
As it is to you, the safety, security and well-being of our students is of primary importance.
Here are the resources we have on-campus to keep your student safe, supported and happy during his or her time on our campus:
Campus Safety Department: Campus Safety is open 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and is always staffed by officers—including a former State Police Supervisor—who are excellent resources for all safety and security-related issues.
Residence Hall Safety: An Emmanuel I.D. card is required for access to residence halls on campus, and each of our residence hall front desks are staffed 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Additionally, there is a panic button at each front desk that will receive an immediate response from Campus Safety if pressed in the case of an emergency.
RAVE Alert System: Emmanuel has a campus-wide urgent communication system in place, which uses texts, e-mails, automated calls and website updates to provide alerts the entire campus community.
Support Services: Emmanuel has a Counseling Center, Campus Ministry and Office of Health Services to address the wide-ranging and individual needs of our students. Both a counselor and a physician are on-call 24 hours per day to speak with any student about any personal or medical situation. Additionally, Campus Ministry is available to meet with students and holds spiritual gatherings for the Emmanuel community.
