Campus Security Office
The Campus Security Office enjoys an excellent working relationship with the Vermont State Police and other local agencies. Generally, matters that are brought to the attention of the Campus Security Office are investigated to determine appropriate action. Most incidents are handled by the Residence Life staff, or through the student conduct system. In the event of a more serious incident or crime, outside agencies are called in to make all necessary arrests and/or issue citations as deemed appropriate by such agencies.
All academic, administrative, and athletic buildings are locked in the evening and weekends according to the scheduled use of the facilities. Individuals not associated with the College by employment, as a student, or as a guest of an employee or student, may be deemed to be trespassers.
In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, Security and Safety notices are posted within the residence halls and other locations on campus as required. Announcements may also be made in the weekly GMC Journal newsletter and by e-mail.
A security escort service is available for any member of the College community by calling 8911 or 8000, if using an on-campus telephone. The numbers from a cellphone or landline off-campus would be 802-287-8911 or 802-287-8000.
The basic functions of the Campus Security Office are to protect individuals and property, control traffic, and promote and preserve civil order. Lost and found is maintained in the Auxiliary Offices in Withey Room 155 (The Mail Room.)
