The Madonna University Public Safety Department will immediately notify the campus community in the event and confirmation of an emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the campus community.
The decision to notify the community is determined on a case-by-case basis. The initial recommendation is made by Public Safety personnel on site. This recommendation can be made to any administrator, but it is typically made to the President or the Vice President for Academic Administration. The person responsible for sending the official notification to the campus community includes, but is not limited to, the Director of Conduct, Safety and Compliance and the Director of Marketing. If the incident requires the larger community to be notified, information will be communicated via text (Rave-Alert) email, website, university phone system, and media outlets.
Through a joint effort with the Physical Plant Department, the Madonna University Public Safety Department will test the Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures annually and document the event. This information will include a description of the exercise, i.e. date, time and if announced or not announced. The documentation is stored in the Public Safety Office.
MUBIT is a collaborative interdisciplinary committee of University faculty and staff that meets regularly to discuss students exhibiting behaviors indicative of high risk in order to initiate strategies to assist individuals in successfully achieving their academic and personal goals.
The purpose of the team is to identify risk behaviors, encourage the University community to report individuals showing signs of distress, provide help and support for the individual in distress, and to provide training and education for students, faculty, and staff.
A person in distress can be referred by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 734-432-5881 or by using the Incident Report form (also found in Quick Links on the Madonna University home page).
The MUBIT Behavioral Intervention Team Handbook can provide further details about MUBIT.
