Safety and Security
The University has instituted safety and security procedures and services, but the personal safety of each individual who enters the campus is his or her own responsibility. Use common sense as you would in any urban area when choosing pathways to your classes. If you need special assistance in an emergency, there are yellow poles with blue lights placed around the campus from which you may call the police.
The most common crime on campus is theft of personal property resulting from students leaving bags and backpacks unattended in libraries and other locations. You can avoid this by keeping your property with you at all times.
In compliance with the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1992, the University makes available to students and employees an annual security report. This report, entitled Information for University Students and Employees - Campus Security and Crime Awareness and A Drug Free University, describes procedures for reporting criminal actions and emergencies occurring on campus; information about security in campus residences and facilities; the enforcement authority of campus police; references to programs regarding security procedures, sex offenses (forcible and non-forcible) and responsibility of individuals for their own safety; the handling of disciplinary proceedings concerning alleged sexual assault; rights of and assistance available in cases involving sexual assault; monitoring and reporting of criminal activity at off-campus property owned or controlled by registered student organizations; and crime statistics required by the statute. This report is available from the Office of Human Resources, the Office Of Admissions, and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
