Emergency Response Preparedness

Parents and Families are are important partners in keeping our students safe and we encourage you to familiarize yourself with our emergency response plans.

Sending your child off to college can seem overwhelming whether the campus is around the corner, across the country or on a different continent. You may be anxious about all the new situations your student will experience without you, including dealing with a campus wide emergency. 

We understand that and we want you to know that the safety of all of our students is a top priority at Malone University. We invest in our safety team and campus staff to ensure that, in the case of an emergency, they are properly trained and equipped to respond. 

A few things you should know and ways you can help prepare your student:

  • Encourage your student to sign up for Malone's Message Alert System by downloading the 911  Shield App through Apple's iTunes Store or Google Play Store.  Parents may also download the 911 Shield app to receive notifications of campus alerts.
  • Familiarize yourself with channels we use to communicate in times of crisis: Facebook,Twitter, Instagram , and the Malone University website.
  • Encourage your student to be vigilant about their personal safety. Remind them to lock their car doors and residence hall doors.
  • In the event of an on campus emergency, students should call the Office of Campus Safety. The office is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The on campus 24 hour emergency number is 8111 from off campus the number is (330) 471-8111.
