Keep your Stuff Safe!

December 13, 2018

Over recent months, there have been a number of students who have reported theft or loss of their personal belongings from the library and public areas on campus.

Please do not leave personal belongings unattended, even for a short time. It can take only a few seconds for items to go missing.

If you find any unattended items on campus, they may be turned in to Campus Security at each campus. You may also visit campus security to find lost items.

Respect and Safety is Your Responsibility!

November 22, 2018

Maintaining a respectful environment is important to Red River College. One part of showing respect is making sure that people feel safe and comfortable. All members of the Red River College Community, including students and staff, have responsibility to prevent violent or threatening behaviour.

This includes:

  • Physical violence—pushing, grabbing, slapping, hitting, kicking, or any other action that may harm another person.
  • Threatening violence or intimidating another person through words or actions
  • Sexual violence or harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Damaging property

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!

What should you do if you see someone acting in a violent, threatening, or discriminating way?

If you see it, it is YOUR responsibility.

You can:

  • Interrupt the behaviour (if it is safe to do so)
  • Help the victim get to safety
  • Tell someone—College Security Services. You may also alert College staff nearby (if you are on Campus) or call the police for incidents off-campus.

Not doing anything supports the person doing the harm. If you witness violent or threatening behaviour and do not report it, you may be subject to discipline (see College Policy S2, Student Discipline)

For more information about your responsibility for safety and respect on campus, check out these College policies:

E13 – Violence Prevention

Policy G5 – Sexual Violence

H1 – Discrimination and Harassment

S2 – Student Discipline

No Wrong Door – Where to go if you experience or witness sexual violence, harassment, or discrimination.
