Guests on Campus

The Campus Safety Office continually maintains a log of all guests and their escorts. This is to make sure all non-MBKU persons on campus have been authorized for campus access AND to have an accurate campus headcount if an emergency situation were to occur. All guests (including family members) should carry photo ID, be accompanied by an MBKU-affiliated escort and visit the Campus Safety Office (first floor of Building B) to check in.

It is for the safety of all MBKU faculty, staff, and students that common entrances are posted with trespass For any permit and/or guest parking inquiries, contact the Fullerton Campus Safety office.

MBKU CARE Team

As MBKU grows in numbers and locations, we continue to remain vigilant regarding campus safety. The University has established a Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (“CARE”) Team that meets on a regular and as-needed basis to review and advise on disruptive, problematic, or concerning student behavior.  The CARE Team responds to non-emergency concerns and uses a proactive approach to discuss potential problems, intervene early and develop appropriate courses of action for referred students.  The goal is to support students who may be in distress or whose behavior is of concern to others before they rise to crisis levels.

Make caring a habit … if you see something, say something! If you witness behavior that is clearly reckless, disoriented, dangerous, or threatening to self or others, call 9-1-1 and Campus Safety at 714.992.7892.

Biennial Review

Alcohol & Other Drug Policies, Procedures & Programs

Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988/Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989

Marshall B. Ketchum University (MBKU) acknowledges its legal obligation to conduct a biennial review of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) policies and programs in compliance with the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989. The intention of this document is to comply with the legal requirements set forth, to discuss relevant prevention and education programs, initiatives, and activities, assess effectiveness of these activities, and ensure that disciplinary sanctions are consistently enforced related to MBKU’s AOD Policies and Programs.

Federal legislation requires institutes of higher education to review these programs biennially. The Biennial Review for MBKU shall be completed every two years, approximately in the Spring term. The Review was constructed based on student survey data and an extensive program and policy inventory completed by the Vice President for Student Affairs.

This review has been prepared by University Student Affairs on behalf of MBKU. Records are maintained for the requisite three years [EDGAR Sec. 86.103 (b) (1)] by University Student Affairs, 2575 Yorba Linda Blvd., Fullerton, CA, 92831.

Campus Security Act

Annual Security Report

The Annual Security Report is prepared by the Campus Safety Office. It includes crime and fire safety data, along with policies pertaining to campus safety, crime, and emergency preparedness. This report is published prior to October 1st each year and distributed to all MBKU students and employees. 

Crime Statistics

In accordance with the Clery Act, MBKU provides mandatory crime statistics as part of the Annual Security Report. The website to access this report is provided annually to all enrolled students, faculty, an staff via MBKU email. Campus Safety requests crime statistics from law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction for all of MBKU’s reportable locations each year prior to the completion of the Annual Report. These statistics, along with reported crimes in specific categories, are included for the previous three years. To view the most recent report, please read the 2019 Annual Security Report.

Upon request, a written crime statistics report is available in the Campus Safety Office during business hours.

MBKU encourages victims of crimes (and/or witnesses) to report incidents to Campus Safety regardless how insignificant the crime may appear. Crimes may be reported by calling 714.992.7892, e-mailing CampusSafety@ketchum.edu, or by completing the “Report A Concern” form on the Community tab of My.Ketchum.Edu. Campus Safety Officers will assist anyone who also wants to report crimes to the Fullerton Police Department.

  • 24-hour patrol
  • Radio dispatch
  • Alarms in key areas
  • ID Access Card entry systems in MBKU-owned buildings
  • On-campus safety escorts
