President’s Advisory Committee on Campus Security

President’s Advisory Committee on Campus Security

In 1999, in compliance with federal and state laws, Pace University established the President’s
Advisory Committee on Campus Security. The committee is comprised of a minimum of six members, at least half of which are female: one third of the committee are students appointed by Student Government Associations, one-third being faculty appointed by campus faculty councils, and one-third being administrators appointed by the President of Pace University.

The committee reviews current campus security policies and procedures and makes
recommendations for their improvement. It specifically reviews current policies and procedures for:

a.  educating the campus community, including security personnel and those persons who advise or supervise students, about sexual assault
b.  educating the campus community about personal safety and crime prevention
c.  reporting sexual assaults and dealing with victims during investigations
d.  referring complaints to appropriate authorities
e.  counseling victim’s, and
f.  responding to inquiries from concerned persons

The committee reports in writing to the president on its findings and recommendations at least
once each academic year; the report is available upon request.

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime
Statistics Act, 20 U.S.C. §1092(f) and section 6433 of New York State Education Law, Pace
University’s campus crime statistics can be found on the Pace University Web site at http://www.pace.edu/  (select “S” from the A-Z index, then Safety and Security, then Campus Statistics).

The Presidents’ Advisory Committee on Campus Security will provide upon request all campus
crime statistics as reported to the United States Department of Education. (USDE)
The USDE Web site for campus crime statistics is http://securityoncampus.org. The Pace
University official charged with responsibility for collecting and reporting campus crime statistics is the executive director of Safety and Security, (914) 773–3700.

Upon request, the University shall provide a hard copy of Pace’s campus crime statistics, mailed to the individual requesting the report, within 10 days of the request, and that information will include all of the statistics that the University is required to ascertain per federal law. The President’s Advisory Committee, the executive director of Safety and Security, and the president will take steps to inform students and prospective students of the existence of the campus crime statistics on an annual basis and other safety policies and procedures of the University.

In compliance with section 6434 of the New York State Education Law, Pace University has implemented a plan providing for the investigation of any violent felony offense occurring at or on the premises of Pace University and providing for the investigation of a report of any missing student. These plans provide for the coordination of the investigation of such crimes and reports with local law enforcement agencies. Such plans include but are not limited to written agreements with appropriate local law enforcement agencies providing for the prompt investigation of such crimes and reports.
