Campus Safety

Grace College and Seminary, the Campus Safety Department, and the Office of Student Affairs are committed to a safe and healthy educational community for students and employees.

We live in a beautiful environment in which safety and security are the responsibility of all its members.

The Campus Safety Department is located in McClain Hall on the lower level. The primary role of this department is to be a service for the Grace College campus. This is accomplished through observation, reports, documentation, and when necessary, taking such action as is deemed appropriate to promote safety of the Grace Community. Campus Safety is available 24 hours a day throughout the year by calling (574) 269-5344.

The Department is responsible for enforcing all campus traffic regulations, general campus patrolling, conducting fire drills, issuing tornado alerts, and investigating any reported incidents. Grace College is an alcohol, tobacco and weapons-free campus.

Grace is proud to be located in Winona Lake, a low-crime community. To find out more information about our campus and community crime statistics, safety policies, and procedures and more, view our Campus Safety Annual Report.
