The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) is a federal law that requires all colleges and universities to annually disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The act is named in memory of Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman who was assaulted and murdered in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986. This report has been prepared to meet the requirements of this act. The statistics included in this report are for the three most recent reporting periods, including calendar years 2007, 2008, and 2009. Also included is the new Fire Safety Report for 2009.
Safety on the university campus is a natural source of concern for parents, students, and university employees. Education - the business of the University of New Haven - can take place only in an environment in which each student and employee feels safe and secure. UNH recognizes this and employs a number of security measures to protect the members of this community.
Emergency Notification System
The University's emergency notification system is used when a situation arises that affects the immediate safety of the campus community or if severe weather conditions exist. The system sends messages simultaneously via voice, text and email. For more information on how to sign up for notifications, please visit http://www.newhaven.edu/student-life/18645.
Crime Alert E-mail
A Crime Alert e-mail is sent to the campus community if a situation arises, on or immediately off campus, that constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat. Students, faculty, and staff receive Crime Alerts through the University's email system.
