Clery Act

Each year, the campus publishes an Annual Security Report, which includes information about crime prevention and reporting; emergency response and evacuation; emergency notifications; timely warnings; alcohol, drug and weapon policies; sexual violence prevention; and other topics. The report includes statistics that occurred at the UCSB campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from campus.

To the greatest extent possible, properties related to registered campus organizations and recognized fraternities and sororities are included in the report statistics, for example:
  • Formally recognized fraternity and sorority chapter facilities,
  • Facilities closely associated with registered campus organizations, and
  • Properties in any location where any student group travels for an extended period (more than one night) or where students regularly travel (e.g., an annual overnight trip to the same location).

Additional information, including the Annual Security Report, is available from www.police.ucsb.edu/clery-act.

OSL's Role in the Addressing the Clery Act

The director of OSL is a member of the Clery Act Compliance Committee and coordinates the department's participation in fulfilling the UCSB's legal obligations to the public. OSL helps the campus meet and exceed the requirements of The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy & Campus Crime Statistics Act through three primary strategies:

  1. Integrating risk-reduction education modules into programming for registered campus organizations, including fraternities and sororities.
  2. Helping to inform students (via our website, OrgSync, and E-mail) of the availability of the Annual Security Report when it becomes available each fall.
  3. Reporting all criminal activity alleged to have occurred on covered properties, including: homicide, sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, alcohol and drug violations, weapons violations, hate crimes, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. (Reports for this purpose alone do not initiate criminal investigations.)
