Report Student Conduct or Concerning Behavior

Report Anonymously

At Indian Hills Community College, the safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff is a top priority. In addition to support from local law enforcement authorities, the Ottumwa Campus has its own on–campus security. Further, we have incorporated outdoor lighting and high–quality security locks as part of our ongoing efforts toward preventing crime, rather than just reacting to it.

A truly safe campus can only be achieved through the cooperation of all students, faculty, and staff. We encourage everyone to stay alert, aware of their surroundings, report suspicious/dangerous activity to the appropriate authorities, and know how to get help in case of an emergency.
