当然, one-hundred percent safety is 底特律 Mercy's goal – and it’s the goal we’ll keep striving to reach. Unfortunately, no campus can be completely safe every second of the time. 然而, we have safety measures in place to protect our students and an excellent record to prove they’re working.

It is important to note that the 底特律 Mercy 领导 Team, 公共安全处, and law enforcement agencies in southeast Michigan recently participated in a training to address active shooter situations. The leadership team is committed to offering training throughout each academic year and will continue to play a role in helping to ensure the safety of our community.
