We are committed to ensuring the safety and security of all members of the Maryland University of Integrative Health community and have developed the following guidelines and resources for your protection.

Emergency Notifications

The University uses several communication tools to alert the community to emergency situations:

  • University email – notifies all current faculty, staff, and students with an MUIH email account of emergency situations.
  • Emergency announcements will also be placed in Canvas.

Whenever you receive an emergency notification, act quickly and decisively. Evacuate or seek shelter, as directed by the notice.

Emergency Management Plan

Emergencies can happen at any time, with little warning. It is important in the event of an emergency to have a set of procedures in place to assure that the lives, property, and interests of Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) are protected. The procedures defined in this manual are to be enacted in the event of an emergency or crisis situation.

Emergency Evacuation Procedures

While on campus or at other properties used by the University, it is important to know how to evacuate in case of an emergency. While on campus, there are several exits located on the first floor, fire doors, emergency lighting, and other precautions in place to allow everyone to safely leave the building or safely harbor in the building until help arrives. See Emergency Evacuation Procedures here.

University Policies

Effective May 31, 2013, we became a tobacco-free campus. Refer to the details in Policy 1030: Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco-Free Campus.

Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act

Under Campus SaVE, the University is required to report additional Clery Act violations for dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault. It is also required to ensure that upon receiving a report, the student, faculty, or staff member is provided with certain resources and notification of their rights. Refer to Policy 1020: Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Assault, and Retaliation. Please report to the Title IX Coordinator at , if you become aware of an incident on or off campus affecting one of our students, faculty, or staff members.

Campus Security Report

Every year, in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Act, MUIH posts a Campus Security Report, listing any and all crimes on campus and the properties adjacent to campus. This report also includes all properties used by MUIH, including Community Partnership sites, recurring retreat and field trip locations, and rented facilities. See the current report here.

While our campus boasts a low crime rate, if you have a concern or need to report a crime, please speak to the front desk ambassador. For larger concerns about safety or security, please contact us at .
