The mission of Emmanuel College Campus Safety is to provide a safe and secure environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the Emmanuel community.
Campus Safety supports the College’s primary mission by maintaining a secure and open environment so that students may be educated in a dynamic learning community shaped by strong ethical values, a commitment to social justice and service, the Catholic intellectual tradition, and the global mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Emmanuel College Campus Safety strives to accomplish this mission by maintaining a continuous and open dialog with the entire Emmanuel community.
Emmanuel College Campus Safety’s core values of service, professionalism, and the maintenance of the highest standards of integrity and ethics provide the foundation and guidance to accomplish this stated mission. Campus Safety’s primary goal is to relentlessly provide personal and organizational safety and security to the Emmanuel community. In order to accomplish this goal, Campus Safety relies on critical partnerships within the Emmanuel community to include students, faculty, and staff. External partnerships to include, the City of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the Colleges of the Fenway are also crucial in order to provide effective safety services to our community. Additionally, Campus Safety is focused on internal and external assessment for improvement, problem solving, as well as continuous planning for the future including emergency planning. Since modern campus safety is information driven, continuous communication and dialog are critical in order to provide safety services to the Emmanuel community. Therefore, Campus Safety encourages any member of the Emmanuel community with a safety concern to contact the Campus Safety Office.
Campus Safety provides full-service police and security to the Emmanuel College community. The Campus Safety office is open 24 hours a day/365 days per year. The sworn campus police staff includes a Director/Chief of Campus Safety and Lieutenants/Shift Commanders. The non-sworn staff includes Sergeants and Campus Safety Officers. Campus Safety also employs a number of student workers who assist with administrative functions and dispatch duties. Additionally, Campus Safety maintains a very close working relationship with the Boston Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, the other Colleges of the Fenway Campus Safety Departments and the Longwood Collective.
In closing, personal safety is fundamental in order for the college to accomplish its mission, and safety is a collective task and responsibility. Campus Safety asks the entire community to assist in ensuring that Emmanuel College is a safe and secure environment for all.
The Campus Safety Department is located in the Administration Building, Room 139.
