The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act was signed into law in November 1990. Title II of this act is known as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act. This act requires institutions participating in student financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures and to provide statistics concerning certain crimes that occurred on campus. In compliance with the act, the Wittenberg Police Division publishes and distributes this information by October 1st of each year in our Campus Security Report.
Federal law requires universities to annually inform students and employees about its safety programs and crime statistics.
The following information is included:
- Current campus policies regarding procedures and facilities for reporting crimes and emergencies and the University's response to such reports;
- Current law-enforcement policies, including the authority of security personnel and policies encouraging the reporting of crimes;
- A description of the type and frequency of programs to inform the campus community about security procedures;
