The College publishes this report to inform the College for Creative Studies (CCS) community about campus safety policies, initiatives to prevent and respond to crime and emergencies, and the occurrence of crime on campus. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires the College to prepare this report. The report uses information maintained by several sources, including the Office of Student Affairs the Wayne State Police Department and the Detroit Police Department. It provides statistics on reported crimes that occurred during the previous three years on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or on property owned, leased or controlled by CCS. This report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies regarding sexual assault and the use of alcohol and other drugs.
CCS publishes and distributes this Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report to all enrolled students and current employees by October 1 of each year. When the College distributes the report, the College provides notice to enrolled students and current employees of the exact electronic address at which the report is posted and notifies recipients that the College will provide a paper copy of the report on request. The College also provides a similar notice to prospective students and prospective employees that includes a statement of the report’s availability, a description of its contents, and an opportunity to request a paper copy. Electronic copies of the report are available on Blackboard (the College’s intranet site) and on the College’s public website. Paper copies of the report are available in the Office of Campus Safety.
