Campus Crime Awareness and Fire Safety

Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report
Clery Act and Higher Education Opportunity Act

This report is prepared in compliance with the Federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, as amended by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. The statistics are maintained and compiled by the Campus Safety Department.

These laws require all institutions of higher education within the Commonwealth to provide students and employees with information pertaining to, but not limited to crime statistics, security measures, fire statistics, fire safety measures, policies relating to missing persons, and penalties for drug use, on an annual basis. These acts also require that this information be available to prospective students and employees upon request.

The primary purpose of the federal law is to create a national reporting system on crime and safety, as well as fire safety for our nation’s colleges and universities. Bryn Mawr College is located in Lower Merion Township, a quiet residential suburb of Philadelphia. Bryn Mawr has a strong crime-prevention and fire safety program that includes the entire community—students, staff and faculty. The entire report is available on-line at www.brynmawr.edu/safety/act73.htm plus the link is disseminated via e-mail and handout messages to the Bryn Mawr College Community by October 1st every year as required by law. Should you have other general questions please contact the Campus Safety Department at (610) 526-7911.
