There’s nothing more important

than keeping your child safe.

RVCC’s Department of Campus Safety works hard to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for your child and all members of the RVCC community.

Security Office

The Department of Campus Safety is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Campus Safety Reports

The Campus Safety Report includes important on-campus and community resources, as well as information about safety issues, reporting incidents, emergency procedures, College policies, federal laws, prevention and awareness programs, and more.

Emergency Procedures

We have an Emergency Alert System that will send text and phone messages to your child in the event of an emergency or school closing. School closings and emergency alerts are also posted on the College homepage at www.raritanval.edu.

Sexual Harassment

It is the policy of RVCC to provide an environment that is free from harassment and discrimination. Students are encouraged to report any incidents of discrimination, harassment, sexual violence, and bullying that cause physical or emotional harm, or create a hostile environment that interferes with their education or their rights as a student.
