Public Safety

The mission of Davis & Elkins College Office of Public Safety is to professionally provide a safe and secure learning, working and residential environment for students, staff and faculty.

The Office is responsible for the safety and security of the campus 24 hours a day every day of the year. Officers monitor on campus residence hall security cameras, as well as actually patrolling the campus via vehicle and on foot. To reach the Office of Public Safety or members of the team, please call or text 304-704-9111, or as a back-up number 304-642-9203.

Emergency Notification System

For the safety of the campus community, the College has a state-of-the-art system that is capable of sending notifications instantly and simultaneously to all registered mobile devices and email address. Notifications are also posted on the College website and social media accounts. Messages will be urgent and of emergency nature only. For this notification system, the College has adopted an opt-out policy, which means that twice a year all current faculty, staff and student information necessary to receive emergency notifications will be uploaded to the system. You may opt-out after the uploads on October 1 and March 1 each year if you choose not to receive the notifications. To sign up, complete the process below. (Although the headline reads "Randolph County Office of Emergency Management and 911," you will only receive alerts from Davis & Elkins College.)
