Milwaukee’s downtown and Third Ward area have historically been among the safest areas of major U.S. cities. MIAD takes pride in providing a safe and secure environment for all students, staff, faculty and visitors. During New Student Orientation, students participate in an interactive workshop on personal safety in an urban setting.
The college’s main building has security officers stationed at the entrance at all times during all hours that the building is open. The security officers patrol the entire campus, including parking lots and the immediate areas surrounding our campus.
The front (and only) entrance to the Residence Hall is locked 24/7 and only residents with keys have access. Whenever the academic building is closed, the residence hall is monitored by a professional security guard stationed at the entrance.
The MIAD Security Office provides safety escorts on request.
The college’s Director of Security oversees and administers to the security officers, which are hired through a Professional Contract Security service. Eight full-time officers are assigned to MIAD. Each officer receives training that is specific to MIAD so they can meet the needs of the MIAD community.
The MIAD Security Office conducts informational presentations on crime prevention and awareness through New Student Orientation, sponsors personal safety seminars and workshops on campus, and develops proactive programs to reduce incidents of crime.
The college also has ongoing relationships with emergency services to support student safety.
Please do not hesitate to call the MIAD Security Office or ask questions about any concerns or comments you may have.
For questions regarding Security, contact Keith Kotowicz, Director of Safety and Security, Room R45A, 414‑847‑3301, email@example.com.
