PURPOSE

To inform the Marygrove College community that timely safety warnings will be used to alert the College community of criminal activity that may pose a safety threat on and around campus.

SCOPE

This policy applies to students, employees, faculty, contractors, consultants, temporary help and other workers at Marygrove College, including all personnel affiliated with third parties.

POLICY

The Campus Safety Department will issue timely safety warnings to the Marygrove Community about crimes on and around our campus. For purposes of this policy, “timely” generally means within 24 hours after an incident has been brought to the attention of a campus safety authority, as defined in the Jeanne Clery Act. The Campus Safety Department will also maintain compliance with all applicable provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act as mandated by the United States Department of Education.

PROCEDURE

  • The Director of Campus Safety or his/her designee is responsible for consulting with department staff, local police department(s) and other campus authorities, as deemed necessary, to determine, on a case-by-case basis, when a safety warning should be issued to the campus community.
  • In keeping with the Clery Act, a safety warning will be issued by the College if the incident meets the following criteria:
  1. It is identified as a Clery Act crime (murder, non-negligent manslaughter, aggravated assault, robbery, forcible sex offenses, forcible rape, forcible sodomy, sexual assault with an object, and burglary); and
  2. It is considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to students, faculty, staff or visitors.
  • Safety warnings for non-Clery Act crimes will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, considering both the frequency of the offense and the likelihood for reoccurrence.
  • The Director of Campus Safety or his/her designee will approve these alerts. In his/her absence, the Provost or his/her designee will approve these alerts.

When a safety warning is issued, the issuing authority must immediately notify representatives of the Dean of Students office, Communications Department, Campus Safety Dispatcher and other necessary administration of Marygrove College. Notification shall also be issued to local police departments, if applicable.

  • The subject line of the safety warning will contain the phrase “timely notification” or “safety warning” depending on the severity of the threat. The notification will include the following information as required by the Clery Act:
  • When safety warnings are issued, a corresponding Timely Notification Action Report will be completed and filed in the Clery Annual Retention file with copies of the safety warning included. (In juvenile case reports, a copy of the associated incident report(s) will also be attached.)
  • In juvenile case reports, an annotation will be placed in the “Miscellaneous Comments/Information” section on the Timely Notification Action Report identifying the location of the related case report (i.e. juvenile records file cabinet).
  • When a safety warning should have been issued but was not, the Timely Notification Action Report will document the reason why.
  • Methods for sharing safety warnings alerts include, but are not limited to: email, posting hard copies in public areas, posting on College and Campus Safety Web sites, and via local media outlets.
  • Once a safety warning alert is issued, it should be posted, for at least sixty (60) days, in a conspicuous location in the Campus Safety Department Office for public view. 
  • Updates on the status of the underlying crime and safety warning will be shared as soon as possible.

 

  • Corresponding college case number (i.e. MGC Case Number: 2008-01)
  • A short description of the crime or incident including the time, date, location, reported offense, suspect description, weapon used (if any), suspect vehicle (if any) and method of operation (MO) used to facilitate the crime. 
  • Personal safety information to assist the College community in protecting themselves from becoming victims of a similar crime and promote overall safety for the campus community.

 

Reporting

  • Members of the College community who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to the Campus Safety Department so the Department can determine whether or not to issue an alert.
  • Other campus safety personnel or college administrators will notify the Director of Campus Safety if they receive reports about crimes or serious incidents.

Relay_for_Life_logoOn Saturday, June 19, Marygrove College hosted the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Detroit. Symbolic of her open arms, the Our Lady of Marygrove statue welcomed the community of supporters into Marygrove’s gates to transform the lawn of the campus into a camp of organizations and teams. Over 40 teams and 700 participants celebrated 120 survivors and remembered the lives of 800 lost loved ones by pledging 24 hours of their time walking for a cure. The amount raised three days prior to the walk was over $45,000, which grew to $70,000 by the afternoon of the relay and finally totaled over $90,000 at the end of the event! The Detroit Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. raised the most, coming in at $15,143.

THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE MARYGROVE.

Spiritual. Elegant. Miraculous. Peaceful. Strolling Marygrove’s beautiful campus is like stepping into a masterpiece painting. In the heart of Detroit, it’s a place that will stir your soul.

Often called Detroit’s most elegant place to learn, Marygrove is located on 53 beautifully wooded acres in northwest Detroit. The park-like campus is centered by four very spacious buildings. Two main structures, both completed in 1927, are the Liberal Arts Building and Madame Cadillac Hall.

Built of Bedford stone in a Tudor Gothic architectural style, both buildings are distinguished by the quality of their materials, including Carrera and Tavernelle Rose marble, English oak paneling, stained and leaded glass windows, terra cotta fireplaces, and bronze grillwork. From the maple and oak hardwood floors to the slate roofs, the buildings are crafted with a quality of material and attention to detail that can never be replicated. In many ways, both buildings represent Marygrove at its best: they express a philosophy of education that reveres excellence and honors the values that endure.

This main social hall occupies the entire south wing of the first floor.  The room’s distinguishing feature is a large terra cotta fireplace.  It is used for receptions, lectures and other College events.

MC - CAFETERIA

Well-balanced meals are served seven days a week.

MC - DENK CHAPMAN HALL

With its intimate terra cotta fireplace, oak paneled wood walls, and carved beam ceilings it affords the College a medium-sized room for social gatherings.

MC - FITNESS CENTER

Located in the lower level of Madame Cadillac Hall, the Fitness Center is equipped with free weights, universal machines and cardiovascular equipment. It is open to all Marygrove students, faculty and staff.  Patrons must have a current Marygrove ID to use the facilities.

MC - MAIN DINING HALL

The ceiling is very high and paneled with large wooden beams, heavily moulded and carved. The entire south end of the room breaks out into a bay window, flooding the room with light.  It is used for receptions, lectures and other College events.

FLORENT GILLET RESIDENCE HALL

A coeducational residence for students, Florent Gillet Residence Hall opened in 1958. The living areas are divided into suites, composed of two bedrooms, a bathroom and a study area. There is also a large community area for student events and a computer lab with 24-hour access on each floor.  (Note:  The residence hall is currently available to undergraduate students 17-25 years old only).

GOLF PRACTICE FACILITY

The golf facility provides Marygrove’s golf team and the Midnight Golf Program with a place to gather, learn and practice.  It features a large practice putting green, a large sand bunker, two practice tee areas to accommodate up to 26 hitting bays, and a 4-hole short course.

SOCCER FIELD

In 2010 a soccer field was installed on the east side of campus.  It represents a commitment by the College to environmental sustainability while providing a new and exciting on-campus activity for Marygrove's athletes, the campus community and the surrounding neighborhood.

A berm located between the Golf Practice Facility and the soccer field has inset seating and can accommodate approximately 250 people. There is also an athletic building that provides a convenient place to store equipment and machinery, and a concessions building with restrooms (which use recycled water) and food for spectators.

STUDENT CENTER

Inside the Student Center you will find the Student Affairs Division, the office of the Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, the Director of Student Life, Academic Advising and Career Development, Counseling and Student Development, Campus Ministry and Service Learning, Technology Services, and Campus Student Organizations.

Located on the first floor, the Resource Room is a beautiful, quiet space available for students to read and relax or hold group study sessions. Books, magazines and journals are available for students’ enjoyment.  In addition, there is also a recreation room for students to unwind.

STUDENT LOUNGES

There are two student lounges on campus:

GREEN AND GOLD LOUNGE

Located in the Student Center Building, this lounge is a fun, relaxing environment for meeting with friends, studying, checking email or watching TV. Lockers are also available.


LIBERAL ARTS STUDENT LOUNGE

Located on the lower level at the east end of the Liberal Arts Building, this lounge has comfortable furniture for students to relax before, after and between classes. Workshops and student activities also take place here. There are vending machines, televisions, lockers and a study room for individual and/or group studying.

THE KEENAN COURTYARD

The courtyard, adjacent to Madame Cadillac Hall, is a place for students, faculty, staff and others to gather, study, eat lunch, or to sit quietly and reflect.
