Security Awareness Programs (Policy SW-37)

Clarkson College provides students and staff with safety related awareness activities. Communication, programs and printed material are available to enhance awareness of personal safety, security, substance abuse and sexual misconduct/assault education.


  • During orientation in August, students are informed of services offered by Campus Security. Students are encouraged to sign up for our Alert Notification System and given the opportunity to sign up during orientation.
  • Campus Security meets with Residential students at the beginning of each semester to discuss personal safety and explain residence hall safety.
  • Every September, information is sent to the entire college community regarding personal safety as well as links to safety videos. This information is sent in conjunction with the Annual Safety and Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report.
  • Our Behavioral Intervention Team offers prevention program to our employees and students, online education modules to employees and students, and bystander intervention/engagement training for employees.
  • Our MARC (Mature and Responsible Choices) committee provides online information, printed materials and posters as well as alcohol education programs throughout the year.

A common theme of all security communications is to encourage students and employees to be aware of their responsibilities for their own safety and the safety of others.

When appropriate, information is given to the college campus through our Alert Notification System alerts.
