"Dedicated to Protecting our Campus Community"
Campus Safety's primary purpose is to protect the lives and property of the students, faculty, staff and guests of Anderson University. Anderson University's Campus Safety Officers are trained and equipped to protect the Anderson University community. The university has for years had a Crisis Management and Emergency Response Team that meets regularly.
The university has security measures in place and is vigilant in its efforts to be prepared for the unexpected. For example, Anderson University has contingency plans that allow for the continuing care of students over several days in the event of disrupted service. An emergency communication system is also available if electrical service is interrupted.
In the event of a campus emergency, the Anderson University community will be notified through email, phone tree and a 24-hour hotline: 864-622-6057. The Emergency Response team is constantly evaluating new technologies for communication as they emerge.
The Anderson University community should stay tuned to television: WYFF-TV (channel 4 locally) WSPA-TV (channel 7 locally) and local radio station:
information on schedules during severe
weather and related closings.
Since family anxieties will be a priority during emergencies, students should talk with family members about various ways of getting in touch with one another should normal communication routes be disrupted. It is important for Anderson University faculty, staff and students to be aware of their surroundings and report any unusual activities on campus. Students should keep residence hall entrance doors and suite doors secure.
It is our sincere hope that our campus will remain free from any disruptions, but if one should arise be confident that everything possible will be done to care for our students, faculty, and staff.
