The Cleary Act's annual report, daily crime and fire log and annual crime and fire report are available for review on this website or in the Office of Public Safety. Any incident considered to be a serious threat to the campus community will be immediately reported. Every student, faculty member, staff member and visitor needs to be aware that safety is everyone's responsibility. Any crime, violation, suspicious person(s) or activity needs to be reported immediately.
The Department of Public Safety helps ensure a safe and secure campus on which students can thrive.
