Our role is to protect the Manhattanville community and its mission by ensuring that the College is well-prepared for any likely emergency and well-protected from major hazards. We conduct building evacuation drills, and ensure that all major campus events are properly designed and executed with the safety of the college's students, faculty, and staff in mind.

With flu alerts in the headlines and newscasts everywhere, the Manhattanville community is understandably concerned about whether and how this illness could affect our campus. We've set up this web site as a clearinghouse of information about pandemic flu, as well as a place to announce Manhattanville-specific updates in the event of an outbreak. Essentials to know at this time are:
Plans for Manhattanville study abroad trips and current off campus study programs remain unchanged.
It is wise for individuals to stay informed, and for governments, health organizations, and institutions like Manhattanville to prepare contingency plans for an outbreak. Manhattanville College will monitor reputable health sources daily when alerts are present.
International students from countries affected by flu outbreaks, or traveling there, can be in touch with the Director of International Student Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) should they have questions.
We encourage concerned Manhattanville faculty, staff, students, and families to check the sites below or this page for updates.
The College is working on an emergency plan for events up to and including the closure of the College. However, we recommend that each student and his or her family discuss their own emergency plan. One specific event families should plan for is a potential College closing due to an outbreak of avian flu or other contagious disease. We suggest you discuss the following questions with your family:
If you are not able to retrieve your student within 36 hours, do you have a relative or friend in New York who can accommodate your student in an emergency?
Can your student car pool with others to return home?
