Displaying Parking Permits

While on college property, parking permits must be displayed in plain sight, hanging from the vehicle’s interior rear view mirror. Failure to properly display your parking permit may result in the issuance of a parking ticket or the vehicle may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Weather Alerts

Michigan's seasons bring the potential for severe weather. Spring, summer, and fall have the potential for severe storms and tornadoes. This is a good time to remind everyone where the tornado shelters are located. These shelter locations are posted in each classroom, office, and other public rooms throughout the various campus buildings. Winter brings the potentional for extreme snow, cold, and ice as well.

The Campus Safety office monitors the weather via the National Weather Service radio and will communicate any need for action and disseminate additional information as needed. If severe weather occurs, an announcement will be made over the public address system. Follow the sheltering instructions that are posted by the doorway in each classroom. If you are in a hallway, go to a location that is clear of windows and outside entrances and take cover.

Clinton Township officials activate an early warning siren system to warn of an impending tornado or storm with anticipated or actual winds of 70 M.P.H. or more. Activation will also occur upon receipt of information from a credible source (sworn police officer, fire department, Skywarn personnel, etc.) that an extreme weather condition exists.                       

When there is a threat or campus emergency—tornado, violence, hazardous material incident, college closure, or other emergency—we use the Baker Alert System to notify all current students, faculty, and staff on the campus. 

Baker Alert is an automatic system that sends recorded emergency messages via cell phones, landline phones, e-mail, and text messages to all the contacts listed in the college's official directory (updated via the SOLAR System). Through Baker Alert, we are able to notify the entire campus community in about 20 minutes. 

To be certain that you are notified in an emergency:

  • Review your information in the SOLAR System Directory to be sure it is up-to-date.
  • If you want to be notified by landline, cell phone, and/or text message, be sure the appropriate numbers are included in the Baker Alert database. 

To check and/or change your emergency contact information:

  • Log in to the SOLAR System.
  • Check your emergency contact number(s) and make any changes if necessary. You are the only person who can update this data. Please review it carefully.

Weather-related changes to school hours or complete school closings may be accessed by calling our Weatherline at (586) 790-9729 or by tuning in to one of the following television/radio stations:
