About ETBU

Emergency Resources and Law Enforcement

Emergency medical assistance and campus safety/law enforcement assistance are available both on and off campus. Individuals are encouraged to contact law enforcement and seek medical treatment as soon as possible following an incident that may pose a threat to safety or physical well-being, or following a potential criminal offense. It is very important for victims of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking to go to a hospital for help with treatment and preservation of evidence, if applicable, as soon as practicable after an incident.

To contact law enforcement: call the East Texas Baptist University Security Department at 903.923.2323 or, if off campus, Marshall Police Department at 903.935.4575. In an emergency, call 911.
