Report a Concern
Colorado Mesa University intends to provide the safest possible environment for our staff and students. However, it must be recognized that ultimately each individual is also responsible for aspects of his or her own safety and security. Further, the input of both staff and students is vital to ensuring Campus Safety Officers' ability to carry out their charge and aid in the prevention of crime or other incidents. We need your help keeping CMU safe!
Have you been concerned about a student or community member's behavior and were unsure of what to do?
- If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency or know of someone who is in eminent danger, do not wait! CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
- If you live on campus and you or someone you know may be at risk of harming themselves or others, or if you need assistance with a personal crisis, call the residence hall duty phone number to speak to someone. If you are not a CMU resident but would like to speak to a mentor, please call the Mentor/Counseling Office at 970.248.1765. You may also file a report for someone (or yourself) who you are concerned about.
- If you are concerned about suicide, you may also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1.800.273.8255 or visit their website.

Campus Safety will promptly investigate the issue and provide follow-up as appropriate.
IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.
CARE ABOUT YOURSELF AND OTHERS; MAKE AN IMPACT!
- All reporting may be done anonymously, however, please consider providing your contact information if a given situation requires urgent attention.
- The filing of a report does not constitute that a crime was committed. Campus Safety uses the data provided in reports as "information only," and may — at its discretion — share said information with the university counseling office or local law enforcement.
- Information transmitted via Report It does not go on your student record.
- DOE regulations and the Clery Act require that reported crimes be recorded and made publicly available via the institution's “Daily Crime Log,” however all personally identifiable information is absent from this record and the campus is not alerted when the "Daily Crime Log" is updated — it is simply available for view inside the Campus Safety Office.
