The College makes every reasonable effort, through the cooperation of all departments, to create an environment that is both safe and secure. Although we cannot guarantee safety, we believe that through cooperative efforts and appropriate education, we can strive toward that end.
Mount Aloysius offers programs throughout the year designed to inform students about personal and campus safety procedures. Students are initially informed of these procedures during orientation sessions. Throughout the year, programming and workshops sponsored by various Student Affairs departments include information regarding safety issues, alcohol and drug abuse prevention and sexual misconduct awareness and prevention on-campus for all students. Specific programs and activities include SAFE personal safety training for women, Take Back the Night, alcohol and drug prevention speakers, KISS week, live fire extinguisher training and non alcoholic activities such as Friday Night Live. The Student Handbook and email on safety and security at Mount Aloysius are distributed yearly to all students.
In cases of criminal activity which is considered a threat to others, the local police will be contacted immediately for assistance and warnings will be distributed via student email and posted on bulletin boards as soon as possible after occurrence of the threat, in order for all to take the necessary precautions. The College complies with federal, state and local laws including those which regulate the possession, use/sale of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances.
The College cooperates with local and state police in all felony crimes. Firearms, weapons and ammunition are prohibited at Mount Aloysius.
