The Briar Cliff University Campus Security annually prepares a report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crimes Statistics Act (Clery Act) (20 USC § 1092). This report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our campus, the Department of Resident Life, the Judicial Officer, and Student Services. Each provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act.
Each year, an email notification is made to all enrolled students, faculty, and staff that provide access to this report. Copies of this report may also be obtained at the Campus Security Office located in Heelan Hall or by calling 712-279-5430. All prospective employees may obtain a copy from Human Resources located in the Business Office that is located on the ground floor of Noonan Hall or by calling 712-279-1633.
This report contains information on institutional policies concerning security, alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, emergency response, fire safety and other matters. (Last updated Sept. 2017)
Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the Campus Security Office, designated campus officials, (including but not limited to directors, deans, department heads, resident life staff, advisors to students/student organizations, and athletic coaches), and local law enforcement agencies. Student Services and counseling staff inform their clients of the procedures to report crime to Campus Security on a voluntary or confidential basis, should they feel it is in the best interest of the client. A procedure is in place to anonymously capture crime statistics disclosed confidentially during a session.
Statistics of criminal occurrences on campus are presented in accordance with the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092). The definitions for these crimes are taken from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program, as modified by the Hate Crime Statistics Act. These statistics are drawn from campus security files, residence life records and campus security authorities (coaches, faculty, staff, etc.), as defined by the Clery Act.
