In the event of a crime that occurs on or near campus that constitutes an ongoing threat to the campus, a timely warning will be issued to the campus community. One or more of the following methods will be used: emergency notifications, e-mails to students and staff, text messages, postings on the college website, or postings in campus buildings.
