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.
The University uses several communication tools to alert the community to emergency situations:
- MUIH Alerts – notifies registered users via text message and email notification when the University population faces imminent threat from a hazard.
- University email – notifies all current faculty, staff, and students with an MUIH email account of emergency situations.
- The University home page (www.muih.edu) displays a popup box with the emergency message.
- Internal public address system announcements – announces emergency information in buildings and locations where public address systems are available.
- Facebook – alerts are automatically posted on the official MUIH Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MUIHealth
- Twitter – alerts are automatically posted on the official MUIH Twitter account: https://twitter.com/MUIHealth
- Desktop Alerts – when installed on your computer, this program displays an alert notification as a pop-up window or a ticker banner.
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 University properties, 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.
Effective May 31, 2013, we became a tobacco-free campus. For more information about what our Tobacco-Free Campus Policy entails as well as cessation resources, click here.
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. As such, we have this document to make sure that you are aware of the key definitions under Campus SaVE, and what options you have for reporting an incident. Please report to Melissa Cahill, Title IX Coordinator, 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.
Reporting a Concern or Crime
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-888-9048 ext 6682.
