St. Mary's College of Maryland takes the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors seriously. We intentionally plan for predictable and unpredictable incidents and emergencies. An Emergency Response Team (ERT) is formed whenever there is a significant incident or emergency on campus. However, the ERT cannot respond to the emergency alone. Each and every person on campus has a responsibility to effectively respond when emergency situations arise.
This online information has been designed to help all students, faculty, and staff members respond effectively to such emergencies. Please review the material on this web page.
Sincerely,Roberto N. Ifill, Ph.D.
Dean of Students
