Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act
The University of California, Santa Barbara, is committed to assisting all members of the UCSB community—students, faculty, staff and visitors—in providing for their own safety and security. The complete UCSB campus safety report, Dedicated to the Safety of Our Community: The Clery Act Campus Security Report, including campus crime statistics, campus policies, and substance abuse, sexual harassment, and sexual assault complaint procedures, is available at www.sa.ucsb.edu/policies/CleryAct/, or you can request a copy by calling the Office of Student Life at (805) 893-7884.
This information is made available in accordance with the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act,” formerly the “Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act.” The Web site contains information regarding campus security and personal safety, including topics such as crime prevention, university police law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures, and other matters of importance related to security on campus. The Web site contains information about crime statistics for the three previous calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by UCSB; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
This information is required by law, provided by the Office of Student Life and the campus Police Department, and upholds the campus belief that a well-informed community is better served and safer. UC Santa Barbara makes continual efforts to reduce crime on campus and supports a reporting philosophy that encourages victims or witnesses to report all incidents immediately to either the UCSB Police or anonymously to a Campus Security Authority. However, in cases of sexual assault, the University recognizes that reporting to law enforcement is a personal decision and respects the right of the survivor to make that decision.
