WELCOME TO CHRISTIAN BROTHERS UNIVERSITY
The Department of Campus Police & Safety, in cooperation with many other departments at Christian Brothers University, prepares and distributes this annual Campus Security Report by October 1st of each year. This report will provide you with information concerning security related services offered by the University in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and the Tennessee College and University Security Information Act.
Campus crime, arrest, and referral statistics include those reported to the Department of Campus Police & Safety, designated campus officials (including but not limited to residence life staff, Dean of Students, Director of Student Activities, judicial affairs officers, advisors to student organizations, and athletic coaches), and local law enforcement. The Director of Student Counseling informs students of the procedures to report crimes to the Department of Campus Police & Safety on a voluntary basis if it is in the best interest of the client. A procedure is in place to anonymously record pertinent information confidentially during such a session.
Each year, an email notification will be made to all faculty, staff, and students directing them to the Web site where this report is available. Copies of the report may also be obtained at the Department of Campus Police & Safety located in St. Joseph Hall. At Christian Brothers University, we take safety and security seriously. We are committed to provide and maintain a safe and secure environment for our staff, students, faculty, and visitors. Your personal safety is a priority at CBU. To maintain a safe campus requires a partnership between the members of the campus community and Department of Campus Police & Safety. Security is everyone’s responsibility and we need your help to ensure that our campus is a safe place to learn, live, and work.
