At Glasgow Caledonian New York College (GCNYC), the safety and security of our students, staff and faculty is our number one priority. All employees and students should familiarize themselves with GCNYC’s Emergency Action Plan and its requirements. Our staff receive training to ensure they are prepared to help in the unlikely event of an emergency or other incident. Click here to access this policy in the College Catalog.

General Procedures for Reporting and Investigating a Crime or Emergency

Community members, students, faculty, staff, and guests are encouraged to report all crimes and emergencies, in an accurate and prompt manner, directly to the NYPD by dialing 911. During normal business hours, we encourage people reporting a crime or emergency to the NYPD to also report the incident, as soon as practicable, to GCNYC’s Title IX Coordinator, a CSA or other College official, and complete an incident report (copies available from the Title IX Coordinator or any other CSA.) Crimes should be accurately and promptly reported to the appropriate police agency, when the victim of a crime elects to, or is unable to, make such a report.

Members of the community are helpful when they immediately report crimes or emergencies to the NYPD and/or to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, CSA or other College official, for purposes of including them in the annual statistical disclosure and assessing them for issuing Emergency and Timely Warning Notices, when deemed necessary. Title IX Coordinator: 646-768-5357 or titleixcoordinator@gcu.ac.uk.

To access the full policy, please refer to GCNYC’s Annual Security Report on the Student Services section of this website.
