Campus Safety & Security

MBKU continuously strives to provide the safest possible environment for classroom, work, study, and after-hours activities for everyone on campus and at MBKU clinics. Personal safety continues to be of paramount importance and will remain one of the highest priorities.

Campus is responsible for ensuring overall safety and security on all University properties. Campus Safety Officers are available on the Fullerton campus 24 hours, 7 days a week. The Campus Safety office is located on the ground level of Building B next to the parking structure.

Each student, faculty, and staff member have been issued ID Access Cards and must carry them for identification at all times. Campus Safety Officers have the authority to check and identify anyone on any campus at any time. If proper identification cannot be provided and it is determined that an individual does not have business on MBKU property, the individual may be escorted off campus.

All members of the campus community are urged to help monitor and maintain the safety of campus. If students suspect an unauthorized or suspicious individual on campus or in the immediate area, they should call Campus Safety (714.992.7892). Please stay on the line until an Officer answers your call and provide details on the individual to the Officer on duty. Located in the parking structure and in Lot C parking area are blue light emergency intercom systems, which are monitored by Campus Safety. These emergency call systems should be used for emergencies only (e.g., not parking issues).

The city of Fullerton has a major university, multiple colleges, and various other schools within its boundaries. This makes the Fullerton Police fully aware of the constant activities on each campus and the potential crime that could occur. MBKU maintains a working relationship with the Fullerton Police Department and has always found them swift to respond to any reported problem.

The University has an Emergency Alert System to communicate with students and employees should there be an emergency. Students can enroll or update their information in the system via the MBKU portal. Once the student is enrolled, and in the event of an emergency or a high-concern event, a notification will be sent to inform the student of the incident and safety directions (e.g., not to come to campus, when to return to campus, etc.). The notification is distributed via text message, email, or voicemail (mobile and landline phones).

Safety as a Social Responsibility

At MBKU, we continually strive for a culture of reporting. It is not the responsibility of a few select people to keep the community safe – it is the responsibility of everyone to maintain overall safety. For more information regarding social responsibility and bystander training, please visit the Student Achievement Center Moodle site for a training video and additional resources on these topics.

If students see something suspicious on campus or have a non-emergency concern about a situation or fellow student, please report the concern via the “Report A Concern” form on the portal. This form may be submitted anonymously. This form is for reporting general concerns regarding the safety and well-being of the MBKU community only. Anonymous reports regarding alleged University policy violations will not be accepted through this form. University policy violations and/or grievances may be submitted to the VPESS (see Student Conduct).

Once submitted, the form will be reviewed and the concern may be investigated, if necessary or appropriate. If students include their own information, they may or may not be contacted for more details or follow-up. Due to specific circumstances and/or confidentiality concerns, it is likely the reporter will not be informed of any outcomes or resolutions.

Make caring a habit – if you see something, say something.

MBKU Campus Safety

MBKU provides information to the University community regarding sexual assault and other personal safety issues annually. University offices, such as University Student Affairs and Human Resources, may refer survivors/possible victims to local support agencies and assist them with reporting the crime to local authorities. The President shall take measures as deemed appropriate after due process and careful consideration with respect to any member of the University Community involved with sexual assault or any other sensitive crime.

Objectives

  1. To annually update and provide information regarding sexual assault on the external MBKU website, in the University Student Handbook and the Student Achievement Center Moodle page which includes local referral sources.
  2. To assist any member of the University community who may be a victim of sexual assault, or other personal crimes, with securing counseling services and reporting the crime to law enforcement.
  3. To educate and train public safety personnel and individuals who advise and/or supervise students regarding prevention and the importance of support services for members of the University Community who may be a victim of sexual assault and other crimes.

  4. The VPESS maintains ongoing referral sources available to students. If a student reports a crime, the VPESS encourages the student to seek out emotional support and immediately provides the student with contact information for local agencies. The student will be informed of the option to report the crime to local law enforcement. If the student desires, the student will be assisted with this process.
  5. The Director of Campus Safety, or designee, aids the affected individual in reporting the crime. This person explains the process and, if necessary, escorts the student to the local authorities.

A Safety Officer is on duty and conducts campus rounds twenty-four hours a day.

*Note: Regardless of circumstances, if a Campus Safety officer asks students, staff, or faculty to vacate campus, they must do so.

Campus Safety Escorts

If for some reason a student feels unsafe, it is late at night, and/or must walk a distance to their vehicle after class, MBKU Campus Safety will escort them to the intended destination. This service is available to all students, faculty, and staff to provide a safe and secure environment. For a Safety Escort, please call Campus Safety: Fullerton (714-992-7892), Ketchum Health Anaheim (714-463-7509), and Ketchum Health Los Angeles (323-234-1356). Stay on the line and your call will be forwarded to a cell phone if an officer is not in the office.

Clery Act

MBKU, in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (also referred to as the “Clery Act”), publishes an Annual Security Report (ASR) to provide its students and employees with an overview of crime that occurs on or near MBKU campus (including CSUF). This information is found on the following website: ope.ed.gov/security. Click “Get data for one institution/campus.” Scroll to the bottom section and complete the “Name of Campus” and “Campus City” fields and select search. The full ASR may be obtained from the University website: https://www.ketchum.edu/student-life/safety-security

Firearms & Weapons

Firearms and other dangerous weapons may not be brought into or kept on University-owned property and/or an affiliated clinic under any circumstances. A student may possess self-defense spray but may not use it for purposes other than self-defense. For more information, please reference the Student Code of Conduct. Violation of this policy may be punishable by disciplinary action, up to and including immediate dismissal or expulsion from the University.

MBKU Safety Officers carry firearms on MBKU campuses to increase our ability to respond to unsafe situations caused by potential threats of violence. No other exception regarding firearm licensure will be allowed.

Non-MBKU Guest Policy

Student guests are welcome on campus. Due to liability issues, guests may not use the Fitness Center. Policies related to computer and facility use apply to student guests as to all other members of the University community.

Campus Safety continually maintains a log of all guests and their MBKU escorts. This is to make sure all non-MBKU persons on campus have been authorized for campus access and to have an accurate campus headcount if an emergency were to occur. MBKU students who have a minor child, relative, friend or other guest visit them on campus must register them with Campus Safety and Security prior to their arrival. MBKU students must be the minor’s parent/guardian OR have permission from the minor’s parent or guardian to be with them on campus. The student accompanying the minor is responsible for the minor’s welfare. All guests (including family members) should carry a photo ID, be accompanied by an MBKU-affiliated escort, and visit the Campus Safety Office (first floor of Building B) to check-in in person. Only if an officer is not available, call 714.992.7892 to contact the Officer on duty. Stay on the line – even if it sounds like the phone hung up. That noise is the call transferring from the Safety Office landline to the patrolling officer’s cell phone. For any permit and/or guest parking inquiries, contact Campus Safety prior to the guest(s) arriving on campus.

Non-Service Pets on Campus

Pets are welcome additions to many people’s lives. However, pet owners must be cognizant of how bringing their animals to campus could negatively affect others. Members of the MBKU community may have allergies or be fearful of animals. In addition, pets may cause unwanted distractions and disruptions in some cases.

Unless a registered service animal, pets belonging to employees and/or students are not allowed on campus. This includes outdoor spaces and within campus buildings and/or clinics. This policy applies to everyone at MBKU unless a specific exception has been granted. Students, please refer to the Accommodating Students & Applicants with Disabilities policy. Employees, please refer inquiries to HumanResources@ketchum.edu.

Parking

The use of the parking structure shall be at the permit holders’ risk. The University shall not be responsible nor assume liability for any damages to or theft of the vehicle or contents therein while parked in the parking structure. Parking in the MBKU parking facility is by permit only. The basic parking permit provides students with entrance into the University's parking structure.

Student parking permits may be ordered online through the portal. The display tag is used throughout the duration of enrollment with activation of parking privileges initiated with paying current parking fees. There is a $10 parking tag replacement fee, which may be purchased on CASHNet. New and replacement tags will be available within 2-3 business days after ordering at the Fullerton Campus Safety Office (Building B).

Student parking fees may be paid on an annual or quarterly basis. Student parking privileges may be canceled within the first 10 days of the first term of the academic year to receive a full refund. No refunds will be provided after the first 10 days. To cancel parking privileges and request a refund, please email StudentAccounts@Ketchum.edu.

Three 15-minute temporary parking spaces are available for those who are coming onto main campus for a quick errand. Contact Campus Safety at 714.992.7892 to request approval prior to coming onto main campus (Fullerton).  Spaces are limited and are based on a first come first serve basis. The 15-minute time frame will be enforced due to the limited spaces. 

Parking Guidelines – All Violations are Subject to Fine

  1. Parking Permits must always be displayed and are non-transferrable unless a group of students is registered with Campus Safety as a carpool group. Permits must be hung from the rear-view mirror. If you have forgotten your permit or driving a different vehicle, stop by the Campus Safety office upon arrival and notify them. If you have lost or misplaced your parking permit or ID/Access card, a replacement can be obtained from Campus Safety, after purchase on CASHNet.
  2. Reserved parking is assigned to employees that pay a premium for the space. These spaces are identified by a “Reserved” sign. If someone else parks in an assigned parking space, they will be contacted immediately to move their car and a fine will be imposed.
  3. No overnight parking is permitted.
  4. A parking permit does not guarantee that a space will always be available. Should a student be required to park elsewhere no refund or reimbursement will be given.
  5. A weekly parking permit may be purchased for $20 on the MBKU portal. This permit must be visible from outside the vehicle.
  6. Compact spaces should be used for small vehicles only. Citation will be issued for oversized vehicles.
  7. Vehicles must park in the center of the parking space (not on lines), forward to the bumper or curb, and park head-in, not backed in.
  8. All vehicle information shall be current and/or updated with Campus Safety when a change has occurred (i.e., Model/Make/Color and License plate).
  9. 5 MPH speed limit is enforced in the parking structure. Any speed greater than 8 MPH is considered reckless.
  10. Only one car allowed through gate at a time. Attempting to enter gate as second car on another person's access is considered reckless.
  11. ID Access Cards are non-transferable – do not let another person use your card to obtain gate access.
  12. No parking, unloading, or loading of passengers in the service and delivery driveway area between the parking structure and Building C.
