Campus Safety Recording


Here are some steps each one of us can take today to ensure we are availing ourselves of the wide range of safety resources available:

  • Grand Valley Police provide online resources for how to respond in the event of an active shooter situation on one of our campuses.
  • If you know of a student who may be distressed and in need of assistance, please make a referral to our CARE Team (Coordination, Assistance, Response and Education) so that we can connect them with services to help. (Of course, if you are aware of an imminent threat to safety, dial 911.)
  • If you have not already done so, please be sure you are signed up for our GVSUAlert! system to receive email and text alerts in the event of a campuswide safety issue. Students may add GVSU community supporters, such as parents, guardians and spouses to this alert system.
  • I also encourage you to download the Laker Guardian app, which allows you to contact GVPD if you are in trouble, send tips, and notify GVPD and people you trust to check in on you if you are alone or in an unfamiliar place.
