Safety Programs

Crime prevention presentations are available through the chief of public safety and security or one of the crime prevention officers. The department routinely develops programs to suit the needs of the campus community. The following are a few of the programs available at MWCC:

RAD (Rape Aggression Defense)

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The RAD System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified RAD Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for RAD graduates.
