Security Annual Reports

The goal of the Yeshiva University Security Department is to maintain an atmosphere where students, faculty, staff and visitors can function free from the worry of crime. The annual security report is released by October 1 of each year. This report is prepared in compliance with the provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 U.S.C. 1092 (f)) and Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (Section 1601 of Public Law 106-386).

The Clery Act requires that the University publish statistics for certain crimes that have taken place as a matter of information and record. The following statistics reflect those crimes that were reported to the Security Department during the indicated period.

Fire Safety Reports

As required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (“HEOA”), Yeshiva University has established the following reporting and disclosure procedures with respect to fire safety in on-campus student housing for its three Campuses.  The reporting and disclosure requirements described below apply only to fires that occur in the University. on-campus student housing, which is defined as student housing that is owned or controlled by the University or located on property that is owned or controlled by the University, and located within the reasonably contiguous geographic area that makes up our three Campuses.

The goal of the University’s Department of Safety and Security is to provide students in on-campus housing with the information, training, and University systems necessary to keep them safe from fires.  

With respect to fires on-campus student housing, Yeshiva University makes three disclosures.  It publishes an annual fire safety report for each campus, it annually reports its fire statistics to the U.S. Department of Education (the “Education Department”), and it makes, keeps, and maintains a daily fire log for each campus.  The procedures for each of these three disclosures are described below.

Daily Crime and Fire Safety Logs

A daily Crime Log and Fire Safety Log for all campuses is maintained at the Security Department office on each campus.  The logs for the most recent 60-day period are available for public inspection, upon request, during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, and information for prior periods is available upon request to the Security Department, with at least 2 business days’ prior notice.

These logs include all crimes, fire-related incidents and other serious incidents reported to the Security Department that occur on campus, including non-campus buildings or properties, on public property or within the Security Department’s jurisdiction, or crimes reported to the Security Department by the NYPD.  The logs set forth the incident type, date the incident is reported, date and time of occurrence, and general location of the incident, as well as the disposition of the incident (if this information is known).  An incident is posted into the log by the Security Department within 2 business days of it receiving a report of an incident; provided that the Security Department may exclude reports from a log in certain circumstances as permitted by law.
