At Mount Allison, we strive to continually maintain a secure, supportive, and equitable environment for all members of our University community.
The University has many resources, which together provide a comprehensive, community-based approach to safety and security on campus – where we all have a role to play.
Safety and security resources:
Security offices patrol campus every evening, seven days a week, and are always available for assistance.
Mount Allison is one of the few universities in Canada to have adult residence dons or families living in residence to provide an extra support system. Each house also has residence assistants who are well trained and always available to listen and offer guidance. To find out more, see residence staff.
Sexual harassment support
Mount Allison's SHARE (Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Education) program offers a complete range of services to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and assault, homophobia and transphobia, intimate partner violence, and related issues. To find out more, see SHARE.
Event service staff
Trained students provide security at all events that sell or serve alcohol on campus.
Security Matters Commitee
Allows students to ask questions, raise concerns, and share information about personal safety and security on and off campus.
Mount Allison's mass notification system has the ability to quickly send messages about campus emergencies and closures to the entire Mount Allison community via text, e-mail, and phone call. To find out more, see MtA Alert.
The staff at the Student Life office is always available when students are unsure where to go or who to call with questions or concerns. To find out more, see Student Life.
In addition to these resources, Mount Allison has extensive programming each year aimed at building awareness of sexual harassment, assault, discrimination, and consent and provides regular training for residence staff members, all with the goal of developing a culture of respect and reporting on campus.
