Campus Security

Our staff is dedicated to serving the campus community, and I hope you will utilize Campus Security as a resource when you need assistance.

Campus Security is responsible for providing a variety of services to the campus community including a safety escort service, crime prevention information, fire safety, medical transportation, emergency response, vehicle assistance, lockout assistance, traffic control and parking enforcement. 

We take great pride in helping to provide a safe and beautiful campus environment.  The Office of Campus Safety and Security is committed to established practices and policies that are in direct accordance with the Mount Union Mission Statement. As such, we strive to provide: “A safe and secure community that fosters a feeling of personal security and protects individual and University property.”

Community safety requires a concerted team effort. Our staff needs the on-going feedback and collaboration of all campus members and departments in order to be optimally effective. I hope that you will contact us whenever you see concerning or questionable behaviors or activities on campus—it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. We maintain a close affiliation with local emergency service providers (police, fire, ambulance) to ensure a prompt response when outside assistance is needed. Additionally, we welcome your feedback or suggestions for ways that we might better serve the campus community at Mount Union.

Mount Union Campus Security looks forward to serving you and meeting your safety needs. We are glad to have you on campus and hope that your experiences here are pleasant and enjoyable.

We welcome your input and suggestions. If you would like to share your ideas and information to improve the safety of our campus please contact the director of campus safety and security.


Emergency Phones

There are 10 emergency phones strategically located on the Mount Union campus. Emergency phones are installed to enhance the security of the Mount Union community. They can be used:

  • when you feel you are in danger
  • to report an emergency
