Procedure for Campus Emergencies
From Michael E Flaherty, Commanding Officer, College Safety & Security: We greatly appreciate your feedback from our recent college safety survey. One of the challenges presented in a number of the responses was when and who should you notify in the event of an emergency. Please note that the National 911 Program defines an “Emergency” as any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. Examples include a fire, a crime (especially in progress), an automobile accident, especially in the case of personal injury, or a medical emergency that requires immediate attention.

If you find yourself in doubt, we urge you to call 911. While the staff of College Safety and Security serve as a capable team for “front line” support, they have limitations. If you do call 911, we in College Safety ask that you also call our security desk (ext. 3200 or 3503-24/7 and regardless of campus) but only if the time and circumstances permit.

It is important to know that our phone system requires that you dial “9” in order to reach an outside line. If you elect to call 911 and you are using a telephone line on the MCCC telephone system you must dial 9 FIRST. 9-911.

If your desktop computer does not have the ALERTUS Desktop “Panic Button" -- the quickest way to alert campus safety and security officers -- please contact the ITS office at ext. 4357. Procedures for using this system are available here: https://mlink.mccc.edu/security.shtml. Please use ext. 3503 (WWC) or ext. 3175 (JKC), available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to report a non-emergency or to request routine assistance or information. If you require further assistance or have questions, please contact Commander Flaherty or Lieutenant Commander Pollard and we will be glad to assist you.

College Celebrates Employee Milestones
Following the the college assembly in May, employees were recognized for milestone years of service and outstanding contributions to the college community during the 39th Annual Employee Recognition Awards. Employees were honored for 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years of service, in addition to two special awards. Roseann Cooper, operations coordinator for Organizational Development & Community Programs, was named as recipient of the Human Relations Award, with network engineer Tonia Harrison named as the winner of the Employee Relations Award. See the photos on M-Link here.

MCCC, DelVal, Sign Guaranteed Transfer Agreement
MCCC and Delaware Valley University officially signed a transfer articulation agreement May 27 that will give Mercer students the option to transfer to DelVal and complete a bachelor’s degree in any of 14 academic programs. Read more here.

Hard Work Produces News Worth Reading in College VOICE
When students sign up to work on The College Voice, MCCC's student newspaper, they know it is not a social club. Long, hard hours go into producing the college's newspaper. But first-year advisor Matthew Kochis, a member of the English/Journalism faculty, is happy to report that his staff of students was up to the challenge this year. Read more here.

Softball Alumna Dana Knapp Named All-American at Kean
The softball program at MCCC received some big news last week, with alumna Dana Knapp (’15), who transferred to Kean University in Fall 2015, being named an NCAA Division III All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association in her first year with the Cougar program. Read more here.

Communication Professor Dylan Wolfe, director of The Gallery at Mercer, will have work on display at Artworks, Trenton's downtown visual arts center located at 19 Everett Alley, through June 11.
