Creating a Safe Macalester

SAFEwalk, a campus SAFEwalk escort service, operates seven days a week from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. during the spring and fall semester, when classes are in session.

Emergency Notification

In the event of an emergency on campus, Macalester uses multiple channels to notify the campus community. These include:

  • Building alarms
  • Email and The Daily Piper
  • Mac Alert, Macalester’s emergency notification text messaging system
  • On-the-ground public safety personnel
  • The web:
  • Voice mail and phone messaging

During an emergency, our goal is to communicate first with those most immediately impacted—people who need to evacuate or seek medical treatment, for example.

Everyone has a part in ensuring campus and personal safety.
