Campus Security

In accordance with the Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended by Public Laws 101-542, 102-26, 102-325 and 103-208, all related to the Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act, the University makes available to current students, prospective students, employees, and prospective employees information about campus safety policies and procedures and statistics concerning whether certain crimes took place on campus. The latest report is posted on the campus bulletin board devoted to official notices, and is available upon request by contacting the Campus Director’s office through the address of the campus the student is attending or planning to attend, or by writing to the University administrative office.

In summary, the report indicates the incidence of crimes at the individual campuses of American National University are very low or nonexistent for all of the reportable years. However, any incident is a cause of concern to the University. Therefore, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to report any crimes or suspected crimes to the Campus Director, who will immediately notify the appropriate local law enforcement agency. In the absence of the Campus Director or other official, or in lieu of notifying them, the individual should directly notify the local law enforcement agency.
