Promoting a Safe Campus: How You Can Help

Sierra College is committed to maintaining safe campuses.

Our comprehensive district-wide safety program includes a Safety Committee comprised of faculty, staff and students. The sole purpose of the committee is to identify and report safety concerns, train personnel and sponsor funding for initiatives to maintain a safe, healthy work and learning environment. The Committee also provides planning related to safety enhancements, emergency contingencies and disaster preparedness.  

But we can’t do it alone.

The Committee encourages the participation of everyone – faculty, students and staff – to initiate, maintain and improve safe practices and conditions at our four locations. 

Email your campus safety concerns to the Safety and Emergency Preparedness Coordinator: Zach Stanfield Jones (zstanfieldjones@sierracollege.edu)
