Campus Security Report 2017:
The Ohio Institute of Health is committed to provide and safe and secure facility for our students to pursue their education. As required by the US Department of Education, we are committed to ensure our compliance to the Clery Act which is also known as her Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. This act provides information to students and families they need to make informed decisions regarding safety. The requirements of colleges and universities are:
- Publish an Annual Security Report: by October 1 a report must be published including three calendar years of campus crime statistics. This must also include policies and procedures and information on the basic rights of victims of sexual assault victims. This report must be made available to all current and prospective students and employees. Schools may comply with this via the internet if those required are notified and provided exact information regarding the on-line location of the report. Paper copies of the ASR should be made available upon request. All crime statistics must be provided to the U.S.Department of Education.
- Disclose crimes statistics for crime incidents that occur on campus, in unobstructed public areas adjacent to OIAH. These statistics must be gathered from local law enforcement agencies and school officials who have “significant responsibility for student and campus activities.”
- Issue timely warnings about Clery Act crimes which pose a serious or ongoing threat to students and employees. Institutions must provide timely warnings in a manner that is likely to reach all employees and students. Timely warnings are limited to those crimes that are reported in the ASR.
- Devise and emergency response, notification and testing policy. Institutions are required to inform all campus members of a “significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students and/or employees occurring on campus”. An emergency response includes both those crimes included in the Clery Act and other types of emergencies (i.e., fire, tornado, infectious disease). Facilities both with and without campus housing must have emergency response and evacuation procedures in place. Institutions are required to provide a summary of these procedures in their Annual Security Report. Compliance also requires an annual testing of the emergency response procedures and the policies for publicizing those procedures.
