Compliance Document

To the University Community:

On behalf of the members of the Office of Public Safety, I want to thank you for your interest in our annual Fire Safety and Security Report. We publish this report because it contains valuable information for our campus community as well as to comply with important provisions of the Clery Act. Maintaining the safety and security of the campus should be considered the responsibility of the entire community – students, faculty and staff.

We encourage you to review the information in this brochure. Inside you will find information about our organization, including descriptions of certain services that we provide.

You will become familiar with our strong commitment to supporting victims of crimes. Lastly, you will find important information about security policies and procedures on our campus, crime data, and crime prevention information.

We join President Roth in the commitment to foster a secure and supportive environment at Wesleyan University, and are proud to be an integral part of the institution’s tradition of excellence. As noted above, campus safety and security is a collaborative effort. We partner with the many Departments that have a critical role in fostering campus safety, including Environmental Health & Safety, Physical Plant, and other departments in the Division of Student Affairs. We also collaborate with Middletown Police and other local safety resources.

It has always been our goal to provide the highest quality service to the University, and are committed to making the Wesleyan University campus a safe place in which to live, work, and study.

Interim Director

Each of these offices provides updated policy information and crime data.
