  • Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Report is published annually and is designed to inform you of MI’s campus crime statistics, security policies and steps you can take to maximize your personal safety.
     

  • Musicians Institute supports the use of timely warning notices as a means of preventing crimes or other serious incidents and to notify the College community of crimes committed on campus and/or in adjacent vicinities. Members of the Musicians Institute community are encouraged to immediately report to the Campus Safety and Security Department crimes and other serious incidents in order to allow issue of a timely warning notice (if/as appropriate).
     

    The College is also committed to ensuring that appropriate information is disseminated quickly and accurately in an emergency situation. Campus Safety and Security Department is responsible for coordinating emergency preparedness efforts, including emergency response and evacuation policies and procedures, in coordination with the College’s senior management team. Emergency policies, procedures, and notification systems are evaluated as needed and tested on an annual basis.

    The Campus Safety and Security Department Manager, along with senior management determine when and how to issue timely warning notices and emergency notifications. Without delay and taking into account the safety of the College community, they determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system—with the exception of instances in which issuing such notification, may compromise efforts to assist victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate an emergency.

    Timely warning and emergency notifications to students, faculty, and staff include the use of School Messenger; Musicians Institute’s electronic (SMS) notification system; email; web postings; and/or signage. Inclusion in this process is automatic for all administrative personnel and for all currently registered students.

    This manual was compiled for the Musicians Institute to help ensure the safety of the buildings’ occupants in the event of an emergency.


    If you have any questions about this process, please call or email the Campus Safety and Security Department desk at 323-860-1127 or you may contact the Campus Safety and Security Department Manager at 323-860-1107 / mikeh@mi.edu.

    Please note that School Messenger is only as useful as the contact information you provide.

    With this in mind, it is important that you keep your contact information up-to-date, should a need for emergency contact be required.

  • Service Animals on Campus – Guidelines and Procedures

    Campus Hollywood is committed to maintaining a campus that is open and accessible to all its community members, including students, employees, and visitors. As such, Campus Hollywood abides by the following policy in regards to service animals and emotional support animals on campus.

    For Students and Visitors

    Permitted Animals: For students and visitors, only Service Animals are permitted in areas where dogs are not otherwise allowed. This means that a student or visitor may be accompanied by a Service Animal wherever the student or visitor would otherwise be permitted to be. A Service Animal is any dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Examples of such work or tasks include, but are not limited to, guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals in training are included in the definition of service animals for the purpose of this policy.

    Animals NOT Permitted: The following are not Service Animals:(1) non-dog animals, except in some cases a miniature horse may qualify as a service animal; (2) animals that solely serve to deter crime; and (3) emotional support, comfort, and companion dogs.

    For Employees

    Permitted Animals: Employees and applicants for employment may have a Service Animal at work, and may also have a Support Animal as a reasonable accommodation. Support Animals are animals that provide emotional support, comfort, or security for the benefit of a person with a disability, or that alleviate one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person’s disability.

    Permitted Inquiries: An employee requesting a reasonable accommodation related to a Service Animal or a Support Animal may be asked to provide documentation explaining why the employee requires a Support Animal in the workplace. All inquiries must be handled through Human Resources, as they may involve confidential medical information.

    Campus Housing

    Permitted Animals: In campus housing, both Service Animals and Support Animals are permitted as an accommodation. For Support Animals, the housing office may ask if the handler has a disability and if the handler has a disability-related need for the Support Animal, in determining whether the animal will be allowed in housing areas. Students may also be asked to provide medical documentation of the disability and the disability-related need for the Support Animal.

    What to Do If You Are Not Sure a Dog Is a Service Animal

    Permitted Inquiries: If it is not apparent that an animal is a Service Dog, then employees can ask two questions ONLY:

    1. Is the animal required because of a disability; and
    2. What work/task is the animal trained to perform?

    If the answer to the first question is yes and the answer to the second question is some work or task related to disability, then the animal is a Service Animal and no further inquiry is needed. Employees are reminded that it is Campus Hollywood’s policy to foster an environment that is welcoming and accessible to all, and that if there are any concerns about whether an animal is a Service Animal or otherwise allowed to be on campus, they should direct those concerns to Human Resources or management rather than the animal’s handler.

    Prohibited Inquiries: All employees are prohibited from making the following inquiries concerning Service Dogs:

    1. The handler cannot be asked to describe the extent and nature of his or her disability, or be required to provide medical documentation of a disability.
    2. The handler cannot be required to produce a special identification card or training documentation for the service animal, or be asked for the service animal to demonstrate its ability to perform the designated work or task.

    Removal of a Service Animal or Support Animal

    Campus Hollywood may request the removal of a Service Animal or Support Animal from Campus Hollywood areas for the following reasons:

    1. If the animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control the animal.
    2. If the animal is not house-trained.
    3. If the animal poses a substantial and direct threat to the health and safety of others, and the threat cannot be eliminated by a reasonable accommodation. This determination requires an individualized assessment of the nature, duration, and severity of the risk; the probability that the potential injury will actually occur; and whether reasonable modifications will mitigate the risk.
    4. If the animal would cause substantial physical damage to the property of others, which cannot be reduced or eliminated by a reasonable accommodation. This determination requires an individualized assessment, not mere speculation.
    5. If the handler provides information that indicates that animal is not actually a Service Animal or a Support Animal, unless animals are otherwise allowed in the area.

    Additionally, if an individual requests that a Service or Support Animal be removed because of a medical condition that is affected by a Service or Support Animal (e.g., respiratory issues, asthma, allergies, etc.), Campus Hollywood will perform an individualized assessment of the situation and consider the needs of all parties in meeting its obligation to provide reasonable accommodations. The individual asking for the Service or Support Animal to be removed because of a medical condition may be asked to provide medical documentation.

    Responsibilities for All Service and Assistive Animals

    For the handler of a Service or Support Animal, Campus Hollywood expects the following:

    1. Must attend to and be in full control of the Service or Support Animal at all times, including all care and supervision.
    2. <1i>Keep the animal under control at all times, e.g., through use of a harness, leash, tether, or voice control, depending upon the task/work performed.

    1. Must allow Service and Support Animals to accompany the handler, as permitted under this policy.
    2. Must not touch (without the permission of the handler), feed, harass, or deliberately startle Service or Support Animals.
    3. Must not attempt to separate the animal from the handler.
