Annual Report PDF

In addition to the crime statistics required by the Clery Act, the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Act requires the release of crime statistics and their rates to students and employees, upon request, to new employees and applicants for admission. The index rate is calculated based on the actual number of Full Time Equivalent (FTE) students and employees, calculated according to a state-mandated formula and includes statistics from a geographic area that extends beyond the campus. These statistics reported reflect crimes as reported to the Marywood University Campus Safety Department and are compiled in accordance with Pennsylvania Act 1988-73 and the College and University Information Act. The Annual Security Report contains policy and procedures in place at Marywood University in accordance with Act 1988-73. Crime Logs and Arrest Logs are available for inspection during business hours at the Campus Safety Department.

Annual Security Report

Report to Students and Employees

College and University Security Information Act Annual Security Report

Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act

The Campus Safety Department prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statics Act. This report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our main campus and alternate sites, Housing and Residence Life, Judicial Affairs, Business Affairs, and Student Affairs. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the act.

Campus crime, arrest, and referral statistics include those reported to the Campus Safety Department, Campus Security Authorities (CSA) (including but not limited to directors, deans, department heads, designed HRLO staff, judicial affairs, advisors to students/student organizations, athletic coaches), and local law enforcement agencies. These statistics may also include crimes that have occurred in private residences or businesses and is not required by law.

Marywood University has 2673 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled for Fall Semester, 2021. Of these, 428 undergraduate and 20 graduate women and 190 undergraduate and 6 graduate men live in campus housing. All enrollment and housing statistics in this report are estimates for Fall 2021. On-campus housing is available primarily to undergraduate students carrying twelve or more credits. Limited on-campus housing is available for graduate students carrying nine or more credits.

Housing for female students is available in three larger residence halls with a limited number of single rooms, three smaller halls, and 36 apartment units, which house five to ten students. Single rooms are available for graduate and undergraduate women in one smaller residence. Housing for male students is available in three larger residence halls and one smaller hall with limited single rooms. In addition, males may be housed in the 36 apartment units.

Full-time students under the age of 21, who do not live with their parent/guardians, are required to reside on campus during their first two years of enrollment. Eligible sophomores, juniors, and seniors may select a room and a roommate during the spring room selection process. Apartment housing and housing in the smaller halls are open to upper-class students.

If available, portions of the residence halls are available for the use of the total campus population, while other portions are restricted for resident use only. The main desk of each larger residence hall is covered by a receptionist during the day and campus safety at night, twenty-four hours a day during periods of normal occupancy. Doors to the residence halls, floors or wings are kept locked and many are equipped with alarms. All dorms are equipped with a card access system for resident access. All doors are panic doors - they open from the inside out in case of emergency. Campus Safety is on call twenty-four hours a day. Residence hall windows are all equipped with locks, and most are inaccessible from outside without a ladder. 

A Residence Director (Graduate Level) resides in each of the larger residence halls along with the students and is available to the students in the evening. Each larger hall is also staffed with undergraduate resident assistants. In addition to the Housing and Residence Life staff, each residence hall is also served by three to four housekeepers and a custodian who are responsible for the general up-keep of the facility. These employees work day shifts. Each resident student has a key card access to his or her own room. Master keys are held by the Residence Director and are only utilized in the case of an emergency.

During periods (breaks) of low occupancy, students may be moved into one residence hall with supervision. The residence hall can only be accessed by residents through Campus Safety.

The smaller residence halls (female and male) are staffed by an undergraduate resident assistant. All doors are kept locked. Windows are all equipped with locks. Smaller residence halls are served by a custodian and one housekeeper. These employees work day shifts. Each resident has a key to the residence hall and to his/her own room. Master keys are held by the Residence Director.

Visitors to the residence halls must check in at the front desk, and must be escorted by the resident. Visitors must abide by all residence hall regulations, which are available at each residence hall and also in the Office of Student Life and the Housing and Residence Life Office.

The Woodland Townhouse Apartments, located on campus, are owned and maintained by Marywood University. Campus Safety rounds are made at the Woodland Apartments, but since each apartment is a separate unit, there are no receptionists. The Woodlands is staffed by 5 resident assistants (undergraduate) and one Resident Director (Graduate Student) who also resides in the Woodlands.

On a space-available basis, the Housing and Residence Life staff assigns a room to guests of the University, who must register in advance. The Residence Director and Housekeeping staff are notified of the assignment and length of stay. Guests of residents must register with the Residence Director or Desk Receptionist, (Campus Safety Personnel) who will assign a room if necessary or available.

All criminal arrests, as well as requests for emergency services (police, fire, and ambulance) must be reported to the Chief of Campus Safety at 570-348-6242 (ext. 6242 on-campus phone system). This phone is monitored twenty-fours a day. If necessary, the local police contact State officials. No persons are allowed to carry weapons on campus, with the exception of law enforcement officials in the line of duty.

Marywood University has signed memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with the Scranton, PA and Dunmore PA Police Departments. 

Criminal incidents on campus are reported to the Chief of Campus Safety, who will determine if local police are needed. All criminal incidents, as well as emergency calls (police, fire, and ambulance) must be reported to Campus Safety at 570-348-6242 (ext. 6242 on campus phones). This phone is covered twenty-four hours a day. Residence Directors and/or Resident Assistants are notified of incidents occurring in the residence halls. They, in turn, notify Campus Safety. In an effort to prevent further crime, Marywood University will, in a timely manner, inform the University community of any criminal offenses (murder, rape or sexual assault, robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, motor vehicle theft) which pose a threat to students and employees. Such information will be disseminated by the President of Marywood University, or his or her designee, and will depend on the particular circumstances of the crime.

To help prevent crimes and/or serious incidents, the Campus Safety Department, in conjunction with other University departments, issues timely warnings to notify the University community about certain crimes in and around our campus. Crime information is obtained from the local police, the Asst. Vice President of Student Services, Housing and Residence Life, and the Counseling Center. Anyone with information of a crime or serious incident should report this to the Campus Safety Department so that a timely warning can be issued, if warranted.

TIMELY WARNING POLICY

In the event a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgement of the Chief of Campus Safety constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus-wide "timely warning" will be issued. The warning will be issued through the college e-mail or E2Campus text messaging.

Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Campus Safety Office would activate the audio warning system to provide immediate notification and safety precautions.

CAMPUS EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE

PURPOSE

This policy authorizes use of the E2Campus system for immediate alerts and notifications to the campus community, prior to and during a potentially catastrophic life-threatening emergency. It was developed to furnish information and direction so that campus community members may immediately protect themselves in an emergency situation. The protocols include the activation of an immediate emergency alert on campus and the use of other messaging systems to provide specific instructions when the crisis alert and notification protocol is activated. 

POLICY

In the event of an emergency situation requiring immediate campus-wide precautions and actions, the Department of Campus Safety or Dean of students are authorized to activate the crisis alert notification system. Immediately prior to activating the system, Campus Safety units will be dispatched and a 911 call will be made to trigger a response from the appropriate jurisdictional first-responder authority.

The activation will be the first part of an integrated communication system, using a variety of vehicles, to notify the campus community. The notification will contain simple, clear instructions intended to minimize risk of serious physical injury or death.

The initiation of the crisis alert will be immediately followed by notification of the appropriate University officials to activate our internal response mechanism.

  • The Chief of Campus Safety or his designee will notify the Assistant VP for Buildings and Grounds, Dean of Students, Director of Housing & Residence Life, VP Business Affairs
  • The VP Business Affairs will notify the remaining members of the cabinet. 

Such emergency situations shall include only those catastrophic events or dangerous incidents where there is an immediate threat of physical harm or death to community members and there is no time to prepare or otherwise warn them of the crisis in advance. Examples of such events or incidents, include, but are not limited to, an active shooter incident, a "gunman" at large, an immediate life-threatening and wide-spread hazardous material incident, a bomb located, or other serious in-progress potentially deadly incidents. Such threats may either be on-campus or off-campus in the immediate area of University owned, operated, and/or controlled property. Only those threats requiring immediate action by community members may result in the activation of the crisis alert and notification protocol.

The emergency notification system will send simple, clear pre-established messages to members of the campus community through a variety of designated systems including, but not limited to, cell phone text messaging, voice messages, MU e-mail accounts, television message boards, supervisor notifications, and door-to-door notifications. A typical message will identify the type of crisis, the location, and the action to take to minimize risk. Examples are:

  • There is (type of crisis) on campus at (a specific location), seek shelter, lock the door if possible, and remain in "
  • There is a (type of crisis) on campus (location) evacuate the area immediately and remain away (from the area) until further "

In the event of an emergency situation as defined in the policy, the Department of Campus Safety or Dean of Students will activate the alert notification protocol and, based on the nature of the emergency, choose the appropriate pre-established message for immediate notification to the University community.

The Chief of Campus Safety will notify the Assistant VP for Buildings and Grounds, and the Assistant Vice President of Student Services and the VP Business Affairs, who will notify the University President and the remainder of the cabinet.

Once the emergency notification has been activated, all calls requesting information will be forwarded to an information update line at 570-348-6211.

Further instructions and information necessary to minimize risk of physical injury or death to community members may be transmitted through the same notification system as necessary until there is no longer an immediate threat. This will be done at the discretion of the Chief of Campus Safety and the Dean of Students.

Only a duly authorized member of the President's executive cabinet may direct the transmission of a message that either notifies the campus community that there is no longer an immediate threat or provides additional non-emergency information.

Responsible Employees and Confidential Reports

The University encourages the reporting of incidents that may be in violation of this Policy. Furthermore, all employees of Marywood University (i.e., staff, administrators, and faculty) have an obligation to report all incidents that may be in violation of this Policy. The University understands many people who are the recipient of conduct that may be in violation of this Policy may wish to keep the incident confidential. As such, it is important that complainants, and potential complainants, be aware of confidentiality and mandatory reporting requirements in order to make an informed decision regarding reporting the incident.

Complainants who wish to make a report but do not want the University to take any action are encouraged to consult with a professional counselor, medical professional, or ordained member of the clergy. In general, this includes the following individuals on the Marywood campus: licensed counselors in the Counseling/Student Development Center; and licensed counselors in the Psychological Services Center.

Professional staff in the Student Health Services Center and the University chaplain have an obligation to report, but may withhold personally identifiable information upon request.

As stated above, all Marywood University employees are obligated to report to the Title IX Coordinator or one of the Deputy Title IX Coordinators any information that they receive relating to incidents that may be in violation of this Policy. Therefore, if a complainant does not want the University to take any action, the complainant should consider reporting to one of the truly confidential resources outlined above, as opposed to another employee of the University.

University faculty, staff, and administrators who know, or in the exercise of reasonable care should have known, of conduct that may be in violation of this Policy and who fail to appropriately handle the report of the incident may be subject to disciplinary action.

Marywood University will fully investigate every report. The University will not allow any form of retaliation against individuals who report an incident or who cooperate in the investigation of such reports in accordance with this Policy. Individuals who knowingly make false reports may be subject to sanctions depending on the facts and circumstances of the particular incident.

Cases involving alleged conduct that may violate this Policy demand special attention to issues of privacy. Dissemination of information relating to these cases is limited so as to ensure, as fully as possible, the privacy of the individuals involved, in accordance with applicable law.

Additionally, if the complainant wishes to remain anonymous, does not wish for an investigation to take place, or does not wish to pursue a formal complaint, the complainant may make such a request to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator. However, the complainant should be advised that the University’s response may be limited, including pursuing discipline. Furthermore, because of the University’s obligation to maintain a safe environment for all members of the University community, the University may not be able to fully honor a complainant’s request and may have an obligation to pursue an investigation without the complainant’s cooperation. When evaluating a request, the Title IX Coordinator will examine certain factors, including whether violence, weapons or alcohol were involved; one of the parties is a minor; there is a pattern; or a continuing threat to the community exists.

In all cases, the University will take preventative measures to preserve confidentiality and privacy to the extent permissible by applicable law.

Interim Accommodations

Complainants have the right to review options and available assistance for interim changes to academic, living, transportation, and working conditions. If the complainant requests such an accommodation, and the accommodation is reasonably available, the University will take prompt action to implement the requested accommodation. The University will endeavor to not inconvenience the complainant in taking interim remedial measures.

Examples of interim accommodations include, but are not limited to, no contact orders, changes in academic or living situations as appropriate with minimum burden on the complainant, counseling, escort services, academic support, as well as the option to retake a course or withdraw from a course without penalty.


External Resources

Marywood University encourages complainants to pursue criminal charges against the person(s) believed to have committed the act in violation of this Policy. The University has personnel on staff who can explain criminal complaint procedures and assist complainants in beginning the process of filing a criminal complaint. Additionally, if necessary, University administrators will notify the appropriate law enforcement officials in accordance with any obligations under federal, state, and local laws. Police investigation and legal prosecution are conducted outside of and in addition to University procedures. Criminal charges and a disciplinary charge may be pursued at the same time. However, the complainant need not pursue criminal charges in order to file a complaint with the University. Should the complainant elect to proceed with both, however, the University will comply with and help to enforce any applicable judicial no-contact, restraining, and protective order.

Marywood will cooperate with law enforcement agencies, including any request that the University temporarily suspend the fact-finding aspect of a Title IX investigation while the law enforcement agency gathers evidence. This suspension is generally 10 days in length; however, specific circumstances may dictate a longer delay. During this time, the University will continue to implement interim accommodations and update the parties of the status of the investigation. The University will promptly resume its Title IX investigation as soon as notified by the law enforcement agency that it has completed the evidence gathering process and will notify the parties that the investigation is being resumed.

Complainants are encouraged to seek assistance both on-and off-campus, as needed, to address issues stemming from the incident. A list of services both on-and off-campus is included below.

Marywood University prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, or use of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees on its property or as part of any of its activities. For more information, refer to the Marywood University Drug and Alcoholic Abuse Prevention Program, September, 2008.

The Physical Plant Management Office is in charge of maintenance of University build­ings, equipment, and grounds. Campus Safety daily patrol for possible safety problems, includ­ing burned out lights and obstructions on walkways. Problems are repaired as soon as possible after they are reported.

Marywood University does not discriminate against applicants for admission to the University on the basis of criminal records. However, each applicant is screened carefully, and evaluated on an individual basis. Regarding the hiring of employ­ees with criminal records, all applicants must indicate if they have been convicted of a crime, and the current status of the case. Marywood University treats persons with police records equitably, and does not ban them unnecessarily from employment. The individual applicant is evaluated in terms of overall qualifications for the position for which he or she has applied. Reference checks are obtained on all applicants. Criminal checks are done for all new hires.

Information regarding safety and security is disseminated on campus as needed through print media. Students residing in the residence halls are given written and verbal instructions on security precautions at a general meeting held at the beginning of each school year. These instructions are reiterated periodically, as needed. Pertinent notices are posted in each residence hall. In addition, general announcements are made in the daily campus publication. Seminars on crime prevention, safety and security issues are held annually. All employees as well as students are encouraged to attend. Topics range from credit card fraud to rape, and speakers include university officials as well as community and government representatives.

The Marywood University Employee Health and Safety Committee investigates employee accident and injury claims, inspects university buildings and provides education and training to supervi­sors and staff on pertinent safety issues. The Committee's purpose is to assist in main­taining a safe work environment, provide opportunities for discussion of accident problems and create university-wide awareness of the importance of safety.

Fire and safety drills are held twice each academic year in residence halls as well as monthly in other campus buildings. Fire exits are posted in every building, and floor plans are also posted in each residence hall and other campus buildings.

Marywood University makes every attempt to provide a safe and secure environment for students, employees, visitors, and personal property, but as in any institution, campus safety is only as good as each individual permits.

Everyone is encouraged to exercise caution and good judgment at all times.

DEFINITIONS:

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:

The term "domestic violence" includes felony or misdemeanor crimes of violence committed by a current or former spouse or intimate partner of the victim, by a person with whom the victim shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse or intimate partner, by a person similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction receiving grant monies, or by any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person's acts under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction. 

DATING VIOLENCE:

The term "dating violence" means violence committed by a person:

(a)  who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim; and

(b)  where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on a consideration of the following factors:

          (i)  The length of the relationship

          (ii)  The type of the relationship

          (iii)  The frequency of interaction between the persons involved in the relationship.

STALKING:

The term "stalking" means engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to:

     (a)  Fear for his or her safety or the safety of others; or

     (b)  Suffer substantial emotional distress.

SEXUAL ASSAULT PROTOCOLS/PROGRAMS

Marywood University will change a sexual assault victim's academic and living situations after an alleged sex offense, if requested; adjustments will be made as reasonably available.  Options may include, but are not limited to, change of room and/or residence hall, changes in the section of a class or facilitation of an incomplete grade, based upon the date in the academic calendar.

Procedures for campus disciplinary action in cases of an alleged sex offense, as well as sanctions which may be imposed by the University are outlined in the Student Handbook and Resident Handbook.

Possible sanctions may include:

  • Policy Reminder
  • Restitution
  • Fines
  • Educational Tasks
  • Restricted Access/Loss of Privileges
  • Removal from University Housing
  • Conduct Hold
  • Probation
  • Interim Suspension
  • Dismissal

Members of the campus community may obtain information concerning registered sex offenders who might be present on campus by contacting local law enforcement agencies:

The Marywood University Campus Safety Department offers the Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) program. The RAD system is the only self defense program for women endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Agencies. This program is a 9 hour comprehensive attempt to provide participants with information, tactics and considerations which may be useful for various types of abduction encounters perpetrated against women.

The Marywood University Counseling/Student Development Center sponsors the "Peers on Wellness" (POW) program; the purpose of this organization is to increase awareness and participation in the following six wellness dimensions: social, physical, intellectual, cultural, emotional, and spiritual. The (POW) members are bi-annually trained on the topic of Sexual Assault Awareness, and offer this topic as one of the presentations in the freshmen seminar course, as well as presentations in the residence halls. This group also distributes a newsletter on Sexual Assault. In addition, the Counseling/Student Development program offers an annual sexual assault awareness program in April.

PACT PROGRAM

The Promoting Awareness of the College Transition program is vital in understanding more about the transition to university life.

Inherently, such a transition requires meeting new people, developing new relationships and getting used to a new routine; however, it is important to understand that developing safe and healthy relationships takes time and care.  PACT facilitates conversation about this transitional period.

This Program will enable Students to understand:

  • The difficulty that can sometimes be met with the transition to college
  • Meaningful communication in relationships
  • The difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • The necessity and legality of agreement and consent
  • Definitions of sexual assault and misconduct
  • Implications of alcohol and other drugs
  • Marywood and community resources

As part of the New Student Orientation preceding the Fall semester, an educational session is held on the topic of Sexual Assault. Educational materials are distributed to students, including a printed booklet (see Appendix A) describing procedures students should follow if a sex offense occurs, information on notification procedures, and resources for the student. This information is also published in the Resident Handbook.

Annual Fire Safety Report

Calendar Year 2021

The following information contains the annual fire safety report, and is submitted for compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of August 14, 2008.

Fire Statistics
Number of Fires 1

Fires on Campus

1

 Fires in Residence Halls

0
Cause of Fire n/a
Number of Fire Injuries 0
Deaths Resulting from Fires 0
Value of Property Damage Due to Fire 0
False Alarms
Number of False Alarms for Calendar Year: 2021 33
Number of Malicious Alarms 0
Number of Other Alarms 0

For reporting purposes, the number of malicious fire alarms will include all false alarms that are the result of pull station activation or an individual deliberately causing the alarm to activate, i.e. smoking.

Each campus residence hall is equipped with a fully integrated, NFPA approved, fire alarms system. The fire alarm system is monitored by an off-site central monitoring station. Upon alarm activation, the central station immediately dispatches either the Scranton or Dunmore Fire Department, and contacts the University Department of Campus Safety. The Campus Safety Officers respond to the scene to assist in building evacuation until the first responders arrive. Additionally, each individual sleeping area is equipped with a fully integrated smoke alarm to provide early detection of a fire.

The Department of Campus Safety, in conjunction with the Office of Housing and Residence Life, will conduct a minimum of two fire/evacuation drills per academic semester. The primary purpose is to educate the building occupants on the proper evacuation procedures, as well as furnishing the opportunity for staff to drill on the procedures. When possible, the fire drills will be conducted with the assistance of Dunmore/Scranton Fire Departments. Each resident assistant and resident director receives annual training on fire evacuation procedures.

All fire safety policies are contained in the Residence Life Student Handbook. During the academic year, the Department of Campus Safety conducts a series of active and passive programming dealing with fire safety. Programs include, but are not limited to, videos, DVDs, informational sessions, poster campaigns, and advanced training upon request.
