University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point
2013 Annual Security Report
The safety and success of students, faculty and staff at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is paramount. A safe environment depends on the cooperation and involvement of individuals like you. We encourage all members of the UW-Stevens Point community to use this report as a guide for safe practices on and off campus.
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires the distribution of an annual security report to all current students, faculty and staff on or before October 1 of each year. We notify all students, faculty and staff of the report and associated web presence via email as well as through informational postings within the campus website.
This publication contains information to aid in the cooperative effort of creating a safer campus. It contains specific information on safety and security, crime prevention, policies relating to reporting crime, campus disciplinary procedures, state and federal laws, response to sexual violence, and crime statistics. The Clery Act requires the reporting of crime statistics for the previous three years concerning crimes that occur: (1) on campus, (2) on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus, and (3) in or on non-campus buildings or property that the institution owns or controls. The Clery Act also requires institutions to report the number of crimes and referrals for campus disciplinary action that occurred in on-campus student housing facilities as a subset of the total number of crimes that occurred on campus.
The 2013 Annual Security Report also includes information from the UW-Stevens Point AODA Prevention Partnership regarding alcohol and drug polices, health effects associated with use of alcohol and other drugs, and university education and prevention efforts. The information shared, in accordance with the requirements of the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act, represents a small portion of the current AODA Prevention Partnership strategic plan.
Finally, in addition to this document, the Cleary Act requires the annual publication of fire safety information for the previous calendar year. You may obtain University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point 2013 Annual Fire Safety Report online at http://www.uwsp.edu/dos/Pages/firesafetyreport.aspx
