Antioch University encourages strongly all students and employees to report accurately and promptly any suspected crime to security personnel and appropriate law enforcement agencies.

Procedures for reporting criminal action: The President has the overall responsibility for security issues for the campus. During the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, all incidents of criminal action should be reported immediately to Nanci Braunschweiger x5169. Incidents of criminal action that occur after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and on Saturday, should be reported to the administrator and/or Security Guard who is on duty. The administrator on duty will take whatever action may be necessary at the time and will report all incidents to the President for follow-up action as required. It is the policy of the University to respond quickly to criminal actions, which pose a threat to the safety of the students and employees as well as to University property.

About Campus Security Reporting

Each year, Antioch University publishes a campus security report for each of its five campuses (Antioch University Los Angeles, Antioch University Midwest, Antioch University New England, Antioch University Santa Barbara, and Antioch University Seattle) in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or the Clery Act.

This federal law requires institutions to publish an annual report that includes crime statistics for the prior three years, policy statements regarding campus safety and security measures, crime prevention program descriptions, and procedures to be followed in the investigation and prosecution of alleged sex offenses. The Clery Act also requires colleges and universities to keep an up-to-date crime log, to issue warnings in the event of a crime that may threaten the safety of students or employees, and to keep accurate crime statistics.

Every fall, Antioch submits data to the US Department of Education for the previous calendar year. The most recent report shows crime statistics for the 2012 calendar year. Learn more about the Clery Act.

The United States Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education provides a rapid customized report for public inquires relating to all campus crime data, called the Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool. All Antioch University campus crime data can be found on the Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool website.
