Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

The MCC Police/Public Safety Department prepares the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Act. This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by MCC, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from MCC campus locations. The report also includes policies concerning campus security, such as reporting sexual assault and other matters. The full text of the report can be found online at mccneb.edu/getattachment/Prospective-Students/Resources/Police/2016-AnnualSecurityReport-(1).pdf.aspx.

Parking and traffic

All motor vehicles used by students and staff should be registered with the College. Each campus has parking lots and traffic signs that are prominently displayed. Parking is not reserved and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no charge for parking permits at the College, but all rules and regulations must be observed. Parking permits are issued through Student Services.
