Campus Security and Safety

Northwestern Michigan College is committed to creating and maintaining an environment conducive to campus safety.  Furthermore, it is the policy of the College to communicate with all campus constituencies in a timely manner on issues of general concern.  All procedures designed to maintain campus safety will be reviewed by the Emergency Management Team annually. 

Northwestern Michigan College has established an Emergency Management Team to organize, coordinate, and direct available resources toward an effective response to, and recovery from, emergencies.
