CMU is a vibrant, active, nurturing community serving about 20,000 students on our Mount Pleasant campus. Many people say we’re a big university with a small-campus feel — big enough to offer 300+ academic programs, yet small enough that we know our students by name.
Part of the appeal of CMU is our record of safety that stacks up favorably in comparison to other universities and their hometown communities.
Our police department
is staffed with more than 20 sworn, Michigan-certified officers. We administer a Central Alert system to notify students, faculty, and staff of emergency situations, including campus closures or delays or threats of potential danger. We also compile and post reports about crime statistics.
