Baker College institutionally supports and complies with all of the policies and regulations mandated in the 1990 Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act. In 1998, this act was renamed as the Jeanne Clery Act, and it requires higher education institutions to give timely warnings of crimes that represent threats to the safety of students or employees and to make public their campus security policies. It also requires the submission of crime data to the United States Department of Education.
The Campus Safety Department prepares an Annual Security Report (ASR), which is available at baker.edu/safety or at https://my.baker.edu/icsfileserver/docs/departments/dept-info/campus-safety/annual-security-reports/Baker%20College%20-%20Annual%20Security%20Report.pdf
