220.017 – TIMELY WARNING POLICY
Updated: March 2020
The Clery Act requires that we notify the public of certain crimes which occur within Clery-designated geography. These reports are called timely warnings. Clery geography covers campus and campus-owned properties but not the surrounding neighborhoods.
In the event that a situation arises, that, in the judgment of the Campus Oversight Team, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat to MMW+C’s community, a campus-wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued as soon as pertinent information is available. One or all (working together) of the Campus Oversight Team (COT) will determine what information should be conveyed in the warning, and will initiate the notification process. The timely warning will be issued through MMW+C’s e-mail, and may also be issued through text messages and/or cell phone calls. The timely warning will be distributed to all MMW+C’s students, faculty, and staff who are present at the time of the incident.
Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to a COT team member, by phone, email, or in person.
