Campus Security

Here at the Iḷisaġvik College we take security and safety very seriously. Iḷisaġvik College is a very safe and secure environment. State of the art digital video recording cameras placed strategically throughout the campus for 24hrs of surveillance, as well security personnel, to ensure the grounds are relatively safe. Of course nothing is one hundred percent so; it is important that we all stay aware and report any and all violations as they happen to security personnel.

To reach security, please call (907) 855-0580.

The safety of our students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance. When the college identifies a potential threat or harm to students, staff or property, college administration will immediately take action to ensure safety including, but not limited to: room searches, lock-down, evacuation, or student expulsion.

The residential center and main campus utilize a digital surveillance system to ensure the safety of students and their property.

Under the federal government’s Campus Security Act, Iḷisaġvik College must distribute and make available to students an annual security report containing a description of programs established to support safety, as well as related policies and statistics.

Polar BearsWildlife on Campus

Iḷisaġvik is located on the Chukchi Sea. It is common to see arctic foxes and polar bears on and around campus. Wild animals are dangerous and unpredictable. Students, staff and visitors are strongly encouraged to maintain a safe distance from them and notify college staff or faculty immediately upon spotting them on campus.

College staff will make every effort to warn students of wildlife sighted around campus.
