Norms for Distinguishing Between Civil and University Jurisdiction over Student Misconduct
A student is a member of the Lakeland University community and also of the community at large. Therefore, Lakeland University recognizes him/her as both a student and citizen.
It is the intention here to define the spheres of university and civil jurisdiction.
The following distinctions become relevant:
In general, the university does not attempt to duplicate the function of civil laws and hence, only where the institution’s interests as an educational community are distinctly and clearly involved is the right of the institution asserted.
The university will consider:
In matters which may involve concurrent jurisdiction, the following specific principles are maintained:
If you have any questions regarding the Clery Act or about being a Campus Security Authority (CSA), please contact:
David R. Simon Jr Director of Campus Safety & Security 920 565-1000 ext: 2501
History of the Clery Act
Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman, was assaulted and murdered in her dorm room in 1986.
In 1998 the "Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act" was renamed in her memory. The Clery Act was enacted in the belief that crime awareness can prevent campus victimization.
The federal law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to prepare, publish and distribute, by October 1 of each year, campus security / safety policies and crime statistics in the form or an Annual Security Report (ASR). College community members are notified annually in September of the availability of and how and where to access the ASR. Included in the ASR is a Fire Safety Report, a requirement for campuses with college controlled residential facilities. The Department of Education is responsible for Clery Act compliance.
What is the role of a Campus Security Authority (CSA)?
CSA's are encouraged to report all crimes reported to them on a timely basis to Campus Safety. However, under the Clery Act, CSA's are only obligated to report Clery Act qualifying crimes that occurred on campus in public areas bordering campus and in certain non-campus buildings owned or controlled (leased) by the University. CSA's should only report those crimes that have not been previously reported to Campus Safety or another College CSA. The intent of including non-law enforcement/security personnel in the CSA role is to acknowledge that some community members and students in particular, may be hesitant about reporting crimes to the police or to Campus Safety but may be more inclined to report incidents to other campus employees that are affiliated with the university.
What is done with CSA Report Forms?
The Director of Campus Safety & Security reviews report forms and makes a determination if an incident warrants timely warning / emergency notification of the College community and whether it is a reportable crime in the Annual Security Report (ASR). The Clery Act Coordinator will consolidate crime data from multiple sources, report qualifying crime data to the federal Department of Education, publish a campus ASR and inform the campus community when and where ASR are available. The Lakeland University ASR is posted at http://lakeland.edu/security. Hard copies are available from Campus Safety & Security office upon request.
Crime/Emergency and Non-Emergency Reporting
Regardless of your status (CSA or non-CSA), all community members are encouraged to promptly report all campus criminal incidents and other public safety related emergencies to Campus Safety & Security. For incidents requiring immediate attention call 911, Non-emergency incidents can be reported by dialing "1126" from any campus phone or in person at Campus Safety & Security office located in the Lower Level of Brotz Hall, W3745 North Drive, Plymouth, WI 53073.
