Safety & Security: Anti-Violence Policy
Malone maintains a strict policy of prohibiting any violent conduct, or threats of violence, by Malone employees, students or visitors, on Malone property or in connection with any Malone business or activity.
This anti-violence policy is vigorously enforced, in conjunction with Malone policies concerning such related matters as drug and alcohol use and possession, unlawful harassment, crime, security, safety, health, student admissions, hiring, retention discipline, expulsion, termination, search and surveillance.
Guns, knives, explosives and other dangerous weapons or ordnances are prohibited on all Malone property, including, without limitation, Malone-provided vehicles, parking areas and work sites, or while on Malone premises, business, time or activity. This restriction supersedes any and all permits obtained from any issuing authority that allows private citizens to possess, carry or conceal guns or other weapons.
Malone reserves the right to take appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including criminal prosecution, employment termination and/or student expulsion, as appropriate, with respect to violations of this anti-violence policy.
Employees and students are strongly encouraged to report any violent acts or threats (including concerns about the violent tendencies of any Malone-related individual) to the Director of Campus Safety at ext. 8251. Any such report will be investigated and will be handled with appropriate confidentiality.
In its application and enforcement of this policy, Malone will work closely with campus safety personnel and with community law enforcement authorities, as needed. Furthermore, Malone will provide reasonable assistance concerning such matters as faculty and supervisory training in recognizing and dealing with violence issues, stress management, conflict resolution, and basic skills of assertiveness and self-protection.
All Malone students and employees, and their friends and family, are encouraged to cooperate with Malone in providing a safe and healthy Malone environment, as free of violence as is reasonably possible.
