UAA Campus Security and Fire Safety Report
THE JEANNE CLERY DISCLOSURE OF CAMPUS SECURITY POLICY AND CAMPUS CRIME STATISTICS ACT
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act) requires higher education institutions to provide timely warnings of crimes that represent a threat to the campus community and to publish their campus security policies. The Act also requires that the crime data are collected, reported, and disseminated to the campus community, the Department of Education, and potential students and employees.
Your safety and security are of utmost importance at the University of Alaska Anchorage. It is our policy to comply with the Clery Act and provide you with required information. This 2012 Campus Security Report contains important information from the previous three calendar years (2009-11) concerning reported offenses, arrests, crimes, and disciplinary referrals that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings owned or controlled by the University; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institution policies concerning campus security, alcohol and other drug use, crime prevention strategies, and how to report crimes, sexual assault, and other related matters.
This report includes statistics for the Anchorage campus; Kenai River campus; Kachemak Bay campus; Kodiak College; and Matanuska-Susitna College. The Chugiak-Eagle River campus is reported as part of the Anchorage campus. As a separately accredited institution, Prince William Sound Community College generates a separate Campus Security and Fire Safety Report.
The general information included is relevant to all University of Alaska Anchorage campuses, although where appropriate, information on community campuses has been included. UA Board of Regents Policies and University Regulations are applicable to all campuses.CAMPUS FIRE SAFETY RIGHT-TO-KNOW ACT
