The Jeanne Clery (Clery Act) Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990 requires the distribution of an annual security report to all current faculty, staff, and students, and notice of its availability to prospective students, faculty, and staff. The annual security report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Daemen College. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, and sexual assault. You can obtain a printed copy of this report in the Office of Student Affairs located in the Wick Student Center. It may also be viewed and printed on the College’s website at daemen.edu/ASR.
Timely Warning and Emergency Notifications
In an effort to provide timely notice to the Daemen College community, and in the event of a serious incident which may pose an ongoing threat to members of the Daemen College community, a Safety and Security Alert is sent to all students and employees on campus. The alerts are generally written and distributed to the Daemen College community by the Vice President for Student Affairs, or a designee, and they are approved and distributed to the community by members of the President’s Cabinet. Any necessary updates to the Daemen College community about any particular case resulting in a Safety and Security Alert will be made to the campus community through the Daemen College website (“What’s Happening” page), email to the faculty-staff-announce and students-announce listserve, and the mass communication notification system via means selected by students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Other forms may include information posters in key campus locations, including the Wick Student Center lobby, Canavan Hall lobby, Business Building center lobby, west, east and center doors of Duns Scotus Hall, Campus Village Apartment and Collegiate Village, and locations. Incidents of aggravated assault and sex offenses are considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the facts of the case and whether there is a continuing danger to the campus community. For example, if an assault occurs between two students who have a disagreement, there may be no ongoing threat to other Daemen College community members and a Safety and Security Alert would not be distributed. The VPSA, or designee, in consultation with appropriate campus personnel, reviews all reports to determine if there is an ongoing threat to the community and if the distribution of a Safety and Security Alert is warranted. Safety and Security Alerts may also be issued for other crime classifications, as deemed necessary.
Annual Security Report
Each year in mid-October, an e-mail notification is made to all enrolled students that provides the web site to access this report. Faculty and staff receive similar notification. Copies of the report may also be obtained in the Office of Student Affairs on the first floor of Wick Student Center. It may also be printed from the website.
