Campus Safety at NWCCD

NWCCD is committed to maintaining a safe and secure campus environment. Gillette College and Sheridan College feature well-lit pedestrian walkways joining all main buildings, and Certified Wyoming Peace Officers are on patrol at both campuses.

Emergency Planning

All students and employees have the opportunity to attend trainings based on A.L.I.C.E. training institute curriculum.  A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate) is the leading provider of emergency response training for all ages.

Our district has comprehensive safety plans that include:

  • Emergency response
  • Evacuation
  • Lockdown

Emergency Communication Channels

Our District utilizes communication channels in case of emergency including radio, on-campus audible alert system, and a NWCCD ALERT text-based system. We will also post to the official NWCCD website, social media outlets, and digital signage in campus buildings when appropriate.


Commitment to Title IX

NWCCD considers discrimination in all its forms to be a serious offense. We are committed to creating a safe and friendly learning environment for all.
