The Emory & Henry College Campus Alert System allows students, parents, faculty and staff to receive updates and campus-wide alerts on users' cell phones, PDAs and email. Students, parents and employees are encouraged to register. In the event of a campus-wide emergency College officials use the alert system to communicate important information.
Campus police and security officers are College employees who report to the Dean of Students, and are duly authorized law enforcement officers of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Campus police officers have jurisdiction on the main campus, all college property owned or leased, and on public streets and roads. The major responsibility of campus police officers is to give attention to every situation which might involve the safety and welfare of students and employees of the College.
The College provides annual reports for the Campus Crime and Security Survey that is required by the U.S. Department of Education. This information includes crime data and information on campus safety resources.
Due to the residential nature of our campus community, Emory & Henry College will rarely alter its class schedule because of inclement weather. However, when poor weather conditions exist, the College uses local media outlets and the campus alert system to communicte changes in class schedules. For more information view the inclement weather policy.
To ensure the safety of students, employees and the community, the College has developed polcies for the campus and College property. These guidelines include rules regarding camping and campfires, the College duckpond, and student insurance.
