The 2013 Influenza and the U
At the University of Minnesota, Morris, we are committed to building a safe, respectful and healthy campus community. Listed below are resources to help student, faculty, and staff achieve these goals.
TXT-U is the University of Minnesota's emergency notification text messaging system. Students, faculty, and staff can stay informed about critical campus safety information by registering to receive TXT-U messages. Only University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff can register for TXT-U. However, you can add more than one mobile device to your account, registering your parents, family, friends, or others.
The Safety and Security Report is released annual and provides lists of campus safety programs, policies, reporting processes, and annual crime statistics.
Residential Life Policies are in place to foster a safe and healthy community environment on campus. Contact your Community Advisor or Hall Director with any concerns or problems.
To protect yourself from scams and fraud stay updated on the latest information.
In case of an emergency, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located around campus.
The University of Minnesota strives, “to celebrate and strengthen the multicultural inclusiveness of the campus community” Please let us know if you, someone you know, or a group within our university community, has experienced bias, discrimination or hostility.
The Violence Prevention Program strives to support survivors of sexual assault, prevent relationship violence and stalking, and help all members of the UMM community build healthy relationships.
Weather Alerts and Severe Weather Procedure
If UMM should close due to severe weather, the Chancellor or another senior administrator will have a representative of University Relations notify local media, including KMRS/KKOK, KUMM, KCCO/WCCO, KXRA, KSAX, KIKV, and the UMM Info Desk, by 6 a.m. Anyone (faculty, students or staff) who feels unsafe traveling to campus when campus is open and classes are meeting should not come. On such occasions, faculty should contact the appropriate division chair, students should contact their instructors, and staff should contact their supervisors.
If you park off campus, snow removal alerts and ordinances for the city of Morris can be found online. If you will be out of town for a long period of time, such as Winter Break, it is recommended that you park your car off the street to avoid fines and towing.
While traveling in severe weather is not recommended, check road conditions and closings before leaving.
At times it is impossible to attend class, read through the Class Excuse Policy to know how to handle your particular situation. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs coordinates support for students during times of personal emergencies.
The Student Conduct Code applies to student conduct that occurs on University premises or at University-sponsored activities. At the discretion of University leadership, the code may also apply to off-campus student conduct that may adversely affect the University. For more information on the Student Code of Conduct, contact Dr. Henry Fulda (email@example.com).
