At Clark, we know that the health and safety of every member of our community must come first. On a healthy and secure campus, great things always flourish.
Clark recognizes that the best educational experience unfolds in a healthy and safe environment. This is our priority. We are committed to ensuring that our students, faculty, staff, and visitors can approach their time on campus with peace of mind and body, and that essential services and resources are in place and easily accessed when the need arises.
Clark’s University Police Department is on duty 24 hours a day to ensure a safe and secure campus for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Officers are certified Massachusetts State Special Police Officers and police academy trained.
Counseling & Personal Growth
The Center for Counseling and Personal Growth offers comprehensive mental health services, including individual and group psychotherapy, outreach, consultation, and advocacy, to nurture students’ well-being and cultivate an experience that is welcoming and supportive.
Contracted through UMass Memorial Medical Group, Clark’s Health Services provides acute illness care, gynecological and contraceptive services, health counseling and education. Staff includes registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and part-time physicians.
Safety Escort Services
The Student Safety Escort Service offers free van rides to area locations, including on- and off-campus residences, grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants. The service runs four vans from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m., 7 days a week, during the academic year.
Clark Anti-Violence Education Program (CAVE)
Founded by two Clark psychologists and launched with federal grants, CAVE programming provides comprehensive education to the Clark community on issues related to dating violence, sexual assault, consent, stalking, harassment, and being an active bystander.
In the event of an emergency, our notification system, Clark ALERTS, uses a variety of methods — text messages, voice calls, and emails — to contact students, faculty, and staff with important information and/or instructions on how to respond.
