Safety & Security Resources
In light of the Lewiston tragedy and associated security concerns, the KVCC community should be aware of the following resources both on and off campus. Each of us will face this differently. During times that are extremely difficult, it is important to remember that we are a part of a community – both within the college and within your local towns.
Please remember to take care of yourselves and reach out to someone if you have the need.
Within the community, you may reach out to a resource below:
