Timely Warnings
A Timely Warning is a Clery Act reporting requirement that states that Rogue Community College must notify the campus community in a timely manner when a Clery Act crime has been committed in a Clery Act geographical designated area and is determined, by Rogue Community College, to represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. The decision to issue a Timely Warning will be made by the Director of Risk Management in conjunction with the Vice President of College Services, the College President and the College Public Information Officer. The notification will be sent out to the College community through the College’s email system. The same message will also be posted below. Rogue Community College has the ability to notify specific College campuses through the email system and will evaluate the specific emergency when making the determination on who receives the notification.

All Timely Warnings will be initiated without delay unless the notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible officials, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate an emergency.

Any current Timely Warnings will be displayed here while active.

Timely Warning – Assault at RVC

MEDFORD – At approximately 4 p.m. today, 3/21/2019, a female student at the Rogue Community College Riverside Campus was approached by an older male subject on the west sidewalk of Riverside Avenue next to the A Building. After a conversation, the male subject made unwanted sexual comments toward the female, became angry, and grabbed the female by the arm causing her to fear for her safety. A witness interrupted the encounter and the victim left the area. The incident was reported to security, who in turn reported the incident to the Medford Police Department.

The suspect was described as being in his 50s with gray hair and a beard, and wearing dark clothing. RCC Security was able to develop possible suspect information that was immediately forwarded to Medford police. The area was checked for the possible suspect, and it appears he left the area.

It is important to remember that these types of incidents can happen at any time. Please be careful and take some steps to protect yourself. If you notice suspicious activity or feel threatened at any time while on campus or downtown, do not hesitate to call 911. Be aware of your surroundings and trust your instincts. If you would like an escort to or from your car, or you have additional questions, please call RCC Campus Security at 541-218-2931.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the RCC Risk Management Department.

Emergency Notifications
An Emergency Notification is a Clery Act reporting requirement that states that Rogue Community College must immediately notify the campus community upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation occurring on the campus that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees. The notification will be sent out to the College community through the College’s emergency notification system which may include, based on the individual incident, the email system, via phone call, via text message to everyone who has enrolled in the system, via college owned phones and via intercoms/loud speakers. The same message may be posted on the College’s website and social media accounts and will also be posted below.
