Introduction

Mid Michigan College strives to provide a safe, secure, and equitable environment for all students, employees, and guests. It is important for all members of the campus community to follow good safety practices and understand that safety is the responsibility of all members, not just those officially charged with enforcing campus policies, procedures, rules and law. We rely on all members of the Mid community to identify safety concerns, follow established policies, and report any issues that they become aware of. An important part of this process is through educating the community about guidelines for safety measures, reporting processes, potential hazards, available resources, and disclosing crime statistics.

This webpage is maintained by Security Operations and Systems, which is an extension of the Office of College Compliance and Ethics, and is intended to provide important information and resources relating to campus safety and security.


Campus Safety and Security Oversight

Mid’s Safety and Security policies and procedures are designed to safeguard persons visiting or utilizing our campuses. College safety and security concerns are coordinated through Security Operations and Systems, which is an extension of the Office of College Compliance and Ethics, and the College’s Core Crisis Team with assistance from Campus Liaison Officers. The Core Crisis Team is comprised of the College President, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Community Outreach, Vice President of Student Services, Vice President of Finance and Administrative Services, Assistant Vice President of Human Resources, Facilities Director, Director of Information Technology, Mt. Pleasant Liaison Officer, Harrison Liaison Officer, Director of College Compliance and Ethics, and the Executive Assistant to the President and Board of Trustees.

Campus Security

Daytime campus safety and security services are provided by Clare County and Isabella County Sheriff’s Department, with Liaison Officers assigned to each campus. These uniformed liaison officers are armed and have full powers of arrest. Their role is to maintain a peaceful campus environment by carrying out the responsibilities of certified law enforcement officers. Their duties include but are not limited to: responding to reports of alleged criminal incidents, deterring criminal behavior, providing guidance to the campus community on safety and security issues, upholding local, state and federal laws. Liaison Officers also assist the College with enforcement of college policies and the investigation of incidents for administrative purposes as they relate to the College’s judicial process.

During evening hours College facilities are supported by Building Monitors. Building Monitors are NOT security officers and they do not have arrest powers. They are to provide assistance by ‘observing and reporting’ violations of law, contact 911 in cases of emergency that require response from fire, police, or ambulance, and assist responding agencies in such events by communicating with the College’s Core Crisis Team. They are responsible for general services such as ensuring that all College buildings are locked and secure, walking the campus, providing escorts to vehicles, lost and found, locking and unlocking classrooms for instructors, and assisting with customary campus support and information.

Liaison Officers are generally on campus 7:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Hours may vary between the two campuses and during the summer, dependent on classes.

Building Monitors are generally on campus 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm Monday – Thursday. Evening coverage and hours vary, depending on campus activities and classes.

Events and activities that take place outside of normal building hours are monitored by a representative of the Department hosting the event or activity.

In the absence of Liaison Officers or Building Monitors, College personnel are empowered to contact 911 at any sign of violations of local, state, or federal laws, if they witness criminal activity or if an emergency or dangerous situation occurs that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students, staff, and visitors.

Campus Non Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Information, Resources and Support

Policy Information:

Mid strives to provide an environment where individual’s rights are protected from all forms of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct, which includes acts of sexual violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, and stalking.

Members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Mid prohibits any acts of discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct, including acts of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. Mid’s Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy and the Campus Non-Discrimination, Harassment and Sexual Misconduct Policy reiterates these principles and provides recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated. The Policies define community expectations in the workplace, classroom, college facilities, and in other off-campus sponsored activities and events. The Policies establish a standard for determining when expectations have been breached and outline how the College will respond.

The College maintains a Title IX/Civil Rights webpage which houses various policies that address discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct; outlines Mid’s response to reports of misconduct; information regarding victim/Complainant and Respondent Rights; contact information for the College’s Title IX/Civil Rights Coordinator; reporting options; and internal and external resources.

Contact Information for the Title IX/Civil Rights Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator is the official that is designated and authorized by Mid to ensure compliance with federal rules and regulations, as well as established policies. Primarily, the Title IX Coordinator oversees Mid’s response efforts when reports of misconduct are made. This includes coordination of intake, implementation of supportive measures, assessment, investigation, resolution processes and sanctions, following a finding of responsibility, designed to stop, remediate, and prevent sexual misconduct, harassment, or discrimination. The Title IX Coordinator is expected to act with independence and authority free from bias and conflicts of interest. Mid’s Title IX Coordinator is:

Confidential Resources and Support

The College encourages individuals who have experienced acts of discrimination, harassment or sexual misconduct (including dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or sexual assault) to report the conduct to the College’s Title IX Coordinator or law enforcement. The College understands that there are many barriers to reporting, both individual and societal. Not every individual will choose to make a formal report but still may need someone to speak with in confidentiality, who is not required to report the incident to the College’s Title IX Coordinator. For such individuals, the College offers limited Counseling through the Office of Counseling and Wellness Services.

The Director of Counseling and Wellness Services is a professional counselor and is subject to legal confidentiality. This prohibits the release of information without an individual’s express consent, except as required by law. If someone makes a report of criminal or sexual violence to the College’s confidential resource, the individual will be provided with options and information on the steps of submitting a voluntary, confidential report. This Report allows the College to determine if the incident should be reported among the crime statistics in the Annual Security Report. Personal information is NOT disclosed in the crime statistics.

Information on Mid’s Counseling and Wellness Services is available online or may be obtained by contacting:


Amy Campbell, Director of Counseling and Wellness Services

Mt. Pleasant Campus: 2600 S. Summerton Rd., Mt. Pleasant, MI 48858

Community Resources

As College counseling services are limited and in an effort to support an individual’s rights to speak with someone confidentially in confidence, the College maintains a Community Assistance Resource page. Information on this page includes external services for Domestic/Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Substance Abuse, Legal Services, and Mental Health, Crisis and Counseling Services, as well as various other resources.

Additionally, the College has assembled a ‘commonly asked questions and answers’ booklet for survivors of sexual misconduct which is available on the College’s Title IX & Civil Rights webpage. The Guide provides information on survivor reporting options through the College and local law enforcement, resources available on and off campus, information on SANE examinations, how to obtain a College Mutual No Contact Order and/or a Personal Protection Order from the Courts, etc. A resource handbook, published in 2018 by the Office of the Governor in conjunction with the former First Lady of Michigan, entitled A Resource for Campus Sexual Assault Survivors, Friends, and Family is also available.

Reporting Options

Any student, staff member, third-party or bystander who experiences, observes, or becomes aware of any acts of Discrimination, Harassment, or Sexual Misconduct is urged to report it to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, Liaison Officers, or by using the online incident report form.

Reports may be filed using any of the formats listed below:

Campus Security Policies, Crime Statistics and Student Right to Know

The College, through publication of its Annual Security Report (ASR), provides information on policies, procedures, and initiatives surrounding safety and security. The Report is designed to provide the campus community with timely, accurate and complete information about the safety of our campuses and any reported crime so that individuals can make informed decisions on how to keep themselves safe. The Report includes crime statistics for the previous three years in/on campus property, on public property within or immediately adjacent to college owned buildings, and on any properties that are frequented by students that are owned or otherwise controlled by the College but are not immediately adjacent to Campus property. The ASR contains information on current policies and measures that are implemented to create a safe and secure environment of learning for the Mid community; including policies on Drugs and Alcohol, Non-Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct, Smoke Free Campus, Weapons, and Campus Security. Security Operations and Systems is charged with collecting, compiling, and distributing the Report, which is available by visiting midmich.edu/securityreport .


The College also maintains a Daily Crime Log for the purpose of recording any criminal incident or alleged criminal incident that are reported to or identified by Campus Security or Campus Security Authorities that occurred on College property, at off campus locations hosting classes, activities, or events. Crime information is placed in the Daily Crime Log which reflects the date the crime was reported, date the crime occurred, crime location, nature of the incident, as well as the disposition of the crime. The most recent 60 days of the Daily Crime Log is available for immediate public inspection through Security Operations and Systems, 1375 S. Clare Avenue, Office 204 or 205, Harrison, Michigan or 2600 S. Summerton Road, Office 103 or 105, Mt. Pleasant, MI; Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM.
