Your Safety is Our Highest Priority
Laurus College is strongly committed to crime prevention and to the safety of our multiple college communities. Laurus considers the personal physical safety of its students and employees necessary for a successful learning environment. It is our hope that a well-informed college community will be a safe one.
Annual Security Report
The Laurus College Annual Security Report is composed of three sections: Campus Crime Statistics Report, Campus Safety & Emergency Policies, and Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program.
Campus Crime Statistics
The Laurus College Campus Crime Statistics cover crimes reported to the College over the previous three years that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the College, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
The Department of Education collects crime statistics from institutions each fall and makes the data available to the public on these websites: http://www.collegenavigator.gov and http://ope.ed.gov/security.
Campus Safety & Emergency Policies
The Laurus College Campus Safety Policies cover issues concerning crime prevention, crime reporting, sexual assault, alcohol and drug use, and other related matters.
Sex Offender Registry
To learn the identity of registered sex offenders on or near a campus, or anywhere in the United States, visit the sex offender databases at sexoffender.com and nsopw.gov. You can search by city, county or ZIP code. This information is collected by other agencies, and this institution cannot guarantee this information is correct or complete. The information provided here is intended to be in compliance with the Campus Security Act and for campus safety purposes only. It should not be used to intimidate, threaten or harass. Misuse of this information may result in prosecution.
Sex offenders who are required to register in a state must provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which the offender is employed or is a student. The Campus Security Authority at the campus is the designated individual to receive the information.
Protection from Gender Discrimination, Sexual Harassment & Assault
In accordance with federal law, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Laurus College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs and activities.
