Annual Security & Fire Safety Report

About the Report

Carroll College is required by law to compile and disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures as well as to provide data concerning certain criminal offenses in order to be in compliance with Title IV for the Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended. This report must include statements about campus law enforcement policies, campus security education and prevention programs, alcohol and drug policies, sexual assault education and the means for reporting and procedures for handling reports of sexual assault.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act in 1998 further mandates that institutions of higher education publish an annual report which is made available to both current and prospective students and employees of the occurrence of specific crimes on the campus. In addition, the institution must report the number of arrests for liquor law violations, drug use/abuse violations and weapon violations.

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act of 2013 requires colleges and universities to increase transparency about the scope of sexual violence on campus, enhance victim rights, support standards in institutional conduct proceedings and implement campus-wide prevention and awareness programs. Prevention and awareness programs will address sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence. Campuses must designate a Title IX Coordinator who would receive complaints of possible violations of sexual harassment and sexual violence, investigate complaints, impose interim remediation, and regularly assess effectiveness of the institution’s efforts to eliminate campus sexual violence.
