Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act
In compliance with the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act,” codified as 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f) as part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, UTSA collects and discloses certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. (See Crime Awareness and Campus Security Report.)
Pursuant to federal law, alleged victims of violent crime are entitled to know the results of campus disciplinary proceedings concerning alleged perpetrators.
UTSA publishes an annual Crime Awareness and Campus Security Report that pertains to the prior three years of offenses occurring at UTSA. The report contains certain security policy statements, including sexual assault policies which assure basic victims’ rights, the law enforcement authority of UTSA police, and where students should go to report crimes. The report is available to all current and prospective students and employees through the UTSA Police Department website and in various UTSA publications. A copy of these statistics is also provided to the U.S. Department of Education.
The annual report discloses crime statistics for the campus, unobstructed public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain noncampus facilities that are broken down geographically into “on- campus property,” “residential facilities,” “noncampus property,” and “public property,” such as streets and sidewalks.
The annual report contains UTSA’s policy regarding sex-related offenses, including sexual assault prevention programs, educational programs to promote awareness of sex offenders, administrative disciplinary procedures and sanctions for offenders as well as counseling and other student services for victims. Included in the report is a statement advising the campus community where to locate law enforcement agency information concerning registered sex offender information as provided by a state under 42 U.S.C. section 14071(j).
UTSA annually calculates institutional retention and graduation rates for undergraduate students. This information is publicly available in the UTSA Fact Book on the UTSA Office of Institutional Research website. The Fact Book contains information on new undergraduates (first time and transfer) including new student demographics, SAT and ACT scores and retention and graduation rates.
