Campus Security Act


The Campus Security Act of 1990 requires colleges and universities to disclose to current and prospective students certain information. Title II of the Act requires that institutions provide students information on institutional policies regarding security procedures and campus law enforcement, as well as a description of programs designed to inform students about crime prevention. Title II of the Act also calls for institutions to provide statistical data about the on-campus occurrence of certain criminal offenses that have been reported to campus security authorities or local police agencies. The Federal Crime Report is filed in October each year and includes statistics for the previous Calendar year. http://ope.ed.gov/security).


Student Responsibility

It is the responsibility of students on each campus to make themselves aware of personal safety measures. Crime prevention materials are displayed on the individual campuses.

One way students can educate themselves and be prepared in the event of an emergency is to familiarize themselves with appropriate emergency phone numbers, and the locations of emergency call boxes on the Conway and Grand Strand campuses.
