Safety & Security
The mission of the MCPHS University Public Safety Department is to enhance the quality of life for the entire MCPHS University community by maintaining a secure and open environment where the safety of all is balanced with the rights of the individual. The Campus Safety Department strives to accomplish its mission while adhering to its core values of Integrity, Professionalism, and Service. The success of this mission depends upon an effective working relationship between Public Safety personnel and the diverse elements of the MCPHS University community, including students, staff, faculty, and visitors.
Critical to this relationship is mutual respect. Therefore, we pledge to respect the diverse needs and interests of the community we serve. We pledge to be diligent and relentless in the protection of persons, property and the reputation of MCPHS University. Although reported crime at MCPHS University is low, it is important for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to remember that we are located in an urban setting and share many of the safety issues that exist in any city. Preserving the safety and security of the University is the combined responsibility of the entire community.
We ask that our partners in the community assume their individual and collective responsibilities to make MCPHS University a place that is free of crime, fear and disorder, and to provide a civil and open environment that fosters learning and mutual respect.
MCPHS University prides itself on being a very safe campus. In accordance with the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act, crime statistics for the last three years are posted.
