Campus Safety and Fire Safety Information

The Clery Act is a federal statute requiring all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to maintain and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses for the last three years. This information must be published and distributed by typically October 1 each year (December 31 in 2020 only) to current and prospective students and employees. Compliance is monitored by the United States Department of Education. Additionally, a fire safety report must be available as well as documenting fires and describing fire detection equipment in each residential facility.

All members of the Pepperdine community should report all criminal and/or suspicious activity to Public Safety immediately. The Clery Act, however, requires that all Campus Security Authorities: Public Safety personnel, and individuals with significant responsibility for student and campus activities to report all crimes. This includes, but is not limited to, coaches, resident advisers, Greek life leaders, Student Affairs leadership, and deans. Please use the form below to report Clery crimes to Public Safety. If your role already utilizes a form and method for reporting crimes, please use that form.
