GRCC Campus Safety
We are deeply saddened by the senseless tragedy at Virginia Tech. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the students, faculty, and staff as they deal with this unfortunate event.

GRCC has a strong reputation for being a safe environment for students. Although the recent loss occurred on a campus many miles away and on the other side of the U.S., Green River has taken additional steps to protect our campus. President Rich Rutkowski requested an immediate increase to our Campus Security presence. He has also asked that additional campus safety planning be done by Green River’s Emergency Operations Committee.

President Rutkowski and all of us at Green River are committed to ensuring the continued safety of our students.
