Visitors in the Workplace

To provide for the safety and security of employees and the facilities at Spelman, you should notify the public safety department when you are expecting visitors on the campus. Restricting unauthorized visitors helps maintain safety standards, protects against theft, ensures security of equipment, protects confidential information, safeguards employee welfare, and avoids potential distractions and disturbances.


All visitors should enter Spelman at the Office of Public Safety. Authorized visitors will receive directions or be escorted to their destination. Employees are responsible for the conduct and safety of their visitors.


We want to discourage employees from bringing their children on the campus during work hours unless they are participating in a supervised activity. Under no circumstances should children be residing in the residence halls or on campus without adult supervision. The College cannot assume any responsibility for injuries sustained by children while on campus.


If an unauthorized individual is observed on Spelman's premises, employees should immediately notify their supervisor or, if necessary, direct the individual to the Office of Public Safety.
