2021 Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires the distribution of an Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report to all current faculty, staff, and students and notice of its availability to prospective students, faculty, and staff no later than October 1st of each year. This document, referred to as the "Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report" or "ASR," is one of many mechanisms designed to inform current and potential University of Dubuque community members of crime, arrest and referral statistics, of current crime response, reporting, prevention and awareness policies, including policies regarding sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and/or stalking, of campus disciplinary policies and relevant state laws, and of campus safety and security. This ASR includes crime, arrest, and referral statistics for the previous three calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the University of Dubuque, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. The Fire Report at the end the document contains current University of Dubuque Housing fire safety protocols and fire statistics for the previous three calendar years.
This report is prepared by the University of Dubuque (UD). To gather policies for this report, UD collaborated with the Deans of Student Life, Residence Life, Human Resources office, Counseling Services, Intercollegiate Athletics Department, the Title IX Coordinator(s) and other divisions and departments on campus.
Statistics are gathered through reports to the Campus Safety and Security, the Deans of Student Life, Residence Life, the Title IX Coordinator(s), and reports submitted by other Campus Security Authorities. UD also requested crime statistics from outside law enforcement agencies that may have jurisdiction over UD's non-campus property.

Drug Free Schools and Community Act
The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) and Part 86 of the Department of Education's General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR Part 86) requires the University of Dubuque (UD) to develop and implement a drug and alcohol abuse education and prevention program (DAAPP) designed to prevent the unlawful possession, use, and distribution of drugs and alcohol on campus and at campus events. UD is required to distribute written information about its DAAPP as well as conduct a biennial review to measure its effectiveness and ensure a consistent enforcement of its disciplinary sanctions.
Alcohol and other drug abuse has serious effects on campus safety, community well-being, and on the academic performance of our students. Conducting a biennial review provides an opportunity for UD to document its prevention efforts, and closely examine its scope and effectiveness. Throughout this process, UD can continually identify gaps in evidence-based practices and develop recommendations for future improvements.
