Security Guidelines

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the safety and well-being of the employees and students of the College and for the protection and preservation of the physical assets of the College permitting no unlawful or disruptive action which will hinder the staff and students in the pursuit of educational goals. The Board is also responsible for protecting and preserving an environment that will not interfere with or impede in any way the orderly performance of the lawful duties of the Board of Trustees, College employees, and representatives or cause or threaten to cause damage or injury to the physical assets of the College.
