4 LEHIGH UNIVERSITY Introduction LEHIGH UNIVERSITY is committed to the safety and security of our students, faculty, staff, guests, and the surrounding community. A new Division of Campus Safety was created in 2021, drawing together the Lehigh teams focused on community safety and security; crisis and emergency response; campus law enforcement; crime prevention; and compliance with safety and security regulations. In this report, Lehigh’s Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report, issued in compliance with the Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, 20 U.S.C. §1092 (f), also known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), you will learn about the many initiatives and programs that support our mission to protect our community. Division of Campus Safety Draws Together Areas Dedicated to Community Safety The new division builds on work to support campus safety and aligns Lehigh’s safety services. Consistent with best practices in higher education, Lehigh University’s new Division of Campus Safety draws together the teams of Lehigh employees whose work focuses on community safety and security; crisis and emergency response; campus law enforcement; crime prevention; and compliance with safety and security regulations, including Jeanne Clery Act Compliance—the objective being increased collaboration and coordination of safety, prevention, and emergency-related functions across the university: • The Lehigh University Police Department (LUPD) and Security Guards; • Lehigh’s Campus Safety Communications Center (formerly the LUPD Dispatch Center); • Identification, Electronic Access, and Locksmith (IDEAL) Office; • Environmental Health and Safety • Life Safety (including fire prevention); and • Emergency Medical Services (LUEMS). Assistant Vice President of Campus Safety and Chief of Police Jason Schiffer says that community members should feel comfortable calling the newly named Campus Safety Communications Center (610-758-4200) with a safety concern of any kind, and it will be directed to the appropriate area within the division. The establishment of the Campus Safety Division builds on critical steps Lehigh has taken over time to support campus safety.

5 2022 ANNUAL SECURITY & ANNUAL FIRE SAFETY REPORT Preparation of the Annual Security Report and Disclosure of Crime Statistics The Lehigh University Police Department is responsible for preparing and publishing this Report. It does so to inform the Lehigh community about campus security policies and procedures, programs designed to prevent and respond to certain crimes, and specific statistics for certain criminal incidents, arrests, and disciplinary referrals. This report complies with the Clery Act as amended, and uses information collected by the Lehigh University Police Department; information provided by other University offices, such as Housing Services, Residential Life, Office of Student Conduct, the Office of the General Counsel & Title IX Coordinator, Admissions, Human Resources, and Campus Security Authorities; as well as information provided by the City of Bethlehem Police Department and other police departments that have jurisdiction over property owned or leased by the university. Each of these agencies provides updated police information and crime data to the Lehigh University Police Department. This report provides statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings, or on property owned, leased, or controlled by Lehigh University. This report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies regarding sexual assault, alcohol, and drugs. The Lehigh University Police Department distributes a notice of availability by email of this Annual Security and Annual Fire Safety Report each year to every member of the University Community. Anyone, including prospective students and employees, may obtain a paper copy of this report by contacting the Lehigh University Police Department at 610-758-4202, or can access an electronic copy of the Annual Security & Annual Fire Safety Report at the following link: https://police.lehigh.edu/sites/police.lehigh.edu/files/files/AnnualSecurityReport.pdf Meet Grace, who will become Lehigh’s first certified therapy dog and partner to Detective Lieutenant David Kokinda of the Lehigh University Police Department.

7 2022 ANNUAL SECURITY & ANNUAL FIRE SAFETY REPORT Campus Safety & Security Campus safety and security at Lehigh is a shared responsibility. The best protection against campus crime is an aware, informed, and alert campus comprised of students, faculty, and staff who use reason, judgment and caution, in partnership with a dedicated law enforcement department. The vast majority of our students, faculty, staff and visitors do not experience crime at Lehigh University. However, despite our best efforts, crimes may occur. This information is provided because of our commitment to campus safety and security, and in compliance with the federal law, the Clery Act, the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting Act (UCR, formerly known as the College and University Security Information Act) and the amendments to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) of March 7, 2013. It is meant to be useful to you. If you have concerns, questions, or comments about federal or state law requirements or Lehigh’s compliance with these laws, please contact the Office of The Chief of Police at 610-758-4202. Lehigh University Police Department The mission of the Lehigh University Police Department is to aid in the success of our students and our entire campus community by providing a safe environment within which to live and learn. The success of our mission rests on a partnership between the Lehigh University Police Department and the Lehigh community. The Lehigh University Police Department employs a community policing philosophy and offers a wide variety of public safety programming and educational opportunities. We utilize state-of-the-art technology and have highly trained personnel to assist our community in every way we can. We operate a dispatch and communications center 24 hours per day, 365 days per year who are ready and trained to assist our community. They can receive calls for service from mobile phones, landline phones, emergency phones located around campus and in elevators, or through the HawkWatch mobile application. The HawkWatch app has various options to contact us, including direct phone calls, mobile blue light with GPS location services, text messaging, and email. Our department is physically located on campus at 321 E. Packer Avenue and operates a community substation with the Bethlehem Police at 324 S. New Street. Authority, Training and Jurisdiction All of Lehigh’s police officers are vested with all of the police powers, authority, and responsibilities of any police officer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Officers of the Lehigh University Police Department have full arrest powers and are armed. All criminal incidents that occur on University property are referred to the the Lehigh University Police Department, which has jurisdiction on campus and in the immediate vicinity surrounding University property. Statutory authority for the Lehigh University Police Department’s existence and the powers of arrest is derived from Pennsylvania law (Title 22 § 501 – Detectives and Private Police), which indicates that our officers, “shall severally possess and exercise all the powers of a police officer in the Commonwealth, in and upon, and in the immediate and adjacent vicinity of, the property of the corporation.” All officers employed by Lehigh University are duly appointed by the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas and have sworn an oath required by Article VI of the Constitution of Pennsylvania. Lehigh officers work in close cooperation with the Bethlehem Police Department and often assist with off-campus investigations. The Bethlehem Police Department has police jurisdiction in the areas around campus property within the City of Bethlehem. The Lehigh University Police Department is the primary law enforcement authority at Lehigh University. The department has been accredited by the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association since 2007. The department consists of twenty-six sworn police officers, four full-time security guards, fifteen part-time security guards, six full-time dispatchers, and our business manager. The department rank structure includes a chief and assistant chief, a captain, three lieutenants, four sergeants, and sixteen officers. One of our officers is partnered with a Bethlehem police officer to work with the community members of South Bethlehem and address quality of life issues that concern both permanent residents and students. The Lehigh University Police Department reports all crimes within our jurisdiction to the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting System (UCR), which records detailed information about crimes, arrests, and victimization across Pennsylvania. Reports are also shared, if requested, with local police departments. The department also oversees Clery Act compliance and campus facility security.

8 LEHIGH UNIVERSITY Safety, Our Number One Priority The University takes great pride in the community, and offers many resources for students, faculty, and staff. This community is a wonderful place within which to live, learn, work, and study; however, this does not mean that the campus community is immune from problems that arise in other communities. With that in mind, Lehigh University has taken progressive measures to create and maintain a safe campus environment. Working Relationship with Local, State, and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies The Lehigh University Police Department maintains cooperative relationships with the Bethlehem Police Department, Lower Saucon Police Department, Hellertown Police Department, and the Pennsylvania State Police, that allow for intraoperative radio capability, records sharing, joint training programs, special events coordination, and, at times, the joint investigation of serious incidents. The Lehigh University Police Department is currently negotiating the terms of a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Bethlehem Police Department. This agreement will authorize police officers and supervisors of the participating agencies to request mutual aid for incidents based upon a reasonable belief that such aid will enhance officer safety and efficiency. Under our current agreement, the Bethlehem Police Department alerts the Lehigh University Police Department of reported criminal incidents and calls for service made to the county’s 9-1-1 Center in those off-campus neighborhoods that are jointly patrolled by both Lehigh University Police and the Bethlehem Police Department. Similarly, any incidents involving any member of the Lehigh community at non-campus locations that fall within the Lehigh patrol area, including incidents involving members of student organizations affiliated with the University, are brought to the attention of the Lehigh University Police Department by the Bethlehem Police Department directly by contacting the department. Prompt & Accurate Reporting of a Crime, Fire, Hazardous Condition Or Suspicious Behavior Students, faculty, staff, and visitors are strongly encouraged to promptly and accurately report all crimes and public safety-related incidents to the Lehigh University Police Department, Campus Security Authorities, or the appropriate local police agency. Hazardous conditions are any conditions that are unsafe or unhealthful. Examples include gas leaks, the presence of hazardous environmental materials, chemical spills, and similar conditions. Suspicious behavior is any behavior that makes you feel unsafe. If it’s suspicious to you, it’s worth reporting it to the police. Examples include unusual noises, including screaming and the sounds of fighting or breaking glass; people in or around buildings or areas who do not appear to be conducting legitimate business; unauthorized people in restricted areas; vehicles driving aimlessly through campus, surrounding neighborhoods or parking lots; people looking into parked vehicles that are not their own; people who change their behavior when they notice they have been seen; people dressed inappropriately for the weather or occasion (e.g., wearing a heavy coat in warm weather); and the presence of abandoned parcels or other items in unusual locations such as a lobby or elevator. Note that these examples are not an exhaustive list and when in doubt, we encourage you to make a report. We encourage the reporting of crimes including when the victim does not elect to, or is unable to, make such a report. Crimes and incidents should be reported as soon as possible so that Lehigh may assess the need for a timely warning or emergency notification, and assess the need for inclusion in the annual statistical disclosure. Additionally, all criminal and fire-related incidents should be reported as soon as possible to the Lehigh University Police Department to assist with timely response, accurate documentation, and the exchange of important information among city, state and federal authorities. The Lehigh University Police Department monitors all calls for service made directly to the city 9-1-1 Center, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Report a Crime, Fire, Hazardous Condition or Suspicious Behavior By phone: • Dial Lehigh Police: 610-758-4200, or extension x84200 from any campus phone • Activate any Emergency Phone on campus or in campus elevators • Dial Bethlehem Police: 9-1-1 In person: • To any Lehigh Police Officer • To any Lehigh Security Guard • At LUPD headquarters, 321 E. Packer Ave, Bethlehem, PA 18015

9 2022 ANNUAL SECURITY & ANNUAL FIRE SAFETY REPORT Online: • https://police.lehigh.edu/content/report-crime HawkWatch Personal Safety App: • Report a tip using your cell phone, through the HawkWatch app. The HawkWatch personal safety app is offered for free to all members of the campus community. There is no obligation to download this app, but it is strongly encouraged. The HawkWatch app is custom-designed for Lehigh University and includes a number of options that can help in an emergency situation. It also puts the user in direct contact with Campus Safety dispatchers. It is the equivalent of a mobile blue light phone in the palm of the user’s hand. In addition, the app provides quick and easy access to useful information such as directions in emergency situations, and emergency contacts and support resources. It can also serve as a Lehigh bus tracker, provide links for reporting a tip, and offer users a quick and easy way to request safety programs. The HawkWatch app can be downloaded for free at https://lehigh.apparmor.com/clients/lehigh.edu/. Crimes Involving Students at Off-Campus Locations The US. Department of Education requires the University to address whether it is aware of any practice by local police to monitor and document criminal activity by Lehigh students occurring at “noncampus locations of student organizations.” As such, the Lehigh University Police Department relies on its close working relationship with the Bethlehem Police Department to receive information about off-campus incidents involving Lehigh University students and recognized student organizations. In coordination with local law enforcement agencies, the Lehigh University Police Department will assist with the investigation of certain crimes occurring near campus. External law enforcement agencies will formally notify the Lehigh University Police Department, which will subsequently notify the Lehigh University Office of Student Conduct of criminal activity involving student perpetrators. The Lehigh University Police Department will also notify the Dean of Students office regarding any Lehigh students identified as crime victims to ensure proper resources and support are provided. Lehigh University requires all recognized student organizations to abide by federal, state, local laws, and University regulations. Lehigh University may become involved in the off-campus conduct of a student or student organization when such conduct is determined to affect a substantial University interest, as defined in the Student Code of Conduct located at https://studentaffairs.lehigh.edu/content/code-conduct. Campus Security Authority (CSA) A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is an individual who is a Lehigh University official of the institution, and who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to: • Lehigh University Police Department Staff • Residence Life Staff / Gryphons • Dean of Students Staff • Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs • Housing Services Staff • Physicians in the Health & Wellness Center • Directors of Athletics and Team Coaches • Office of Student Conduct Staff • Academic Advisors • Title IX/EOCC • Faculty and Staff Advisors to student groups Under the Clery Act, a Clery-reportable crime is reported when a victim, witness, other third party, or even the offender brings it to the attention of a CSA or of local law enforcement personnel. It does not matter whether the individual/s involved in the crime, or in the reporting of the crime, are associated with the University. If a CSA receives crime information, and believes it to have been provided in good faith, he or she must document it as a crime report and provide that report to the Lehigh University Police Department. Reporting a crime in “good faith” means that the reporter has a reasonable basis to believe that the information received is not simply rumor or hearsay. CSAs are not responsible for investigating crimes; their role is to appropriately report all incidents that occur on Clery Geography immediately, no matter how minor they may seem. Any subsequent investigations and crime classifications are the responsibility of sworn law enforcement personnel. A training session is conducted annually for the University’s CSAs. Additionally, all newly hired security guards receive in-person CSA training as part of their orientation. All security guards and event staff also receive annual CSA training. All CSAs are provided with resources to report crimes to the Lehigh University Police Department.

10 LEHIGH UNIVERSITY Pastoral counselors and licensed mental health professionals are not considered to be CSAs under the Clery Act. A pastoral counselor is defined as a person who is associated with a religious order or denomination, is recognized by that religious order or denomination as someone who provides confidential counseling, and, at the time of the crime report, is functioning within the scope of that recognition as a pastoral counselor. A licensed mental health professional is defined as a person whose official responsibilities include providing mental health counseling to members of the University community, and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification at the time that the crime report is received. This definition also applies to professional counselors who are not employees of the University, but are under contract to provide counseling at the University. Lehigh does encourage its pastoral counselors and licensed mental health professionals, only if and when they deem it appropriate, to verbally inform persons whom they are counseling of the University’s procedures for reporting crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for statistical inclusion in this Report. In this situation, and only with the permission of the victim, the licensed mental health professional can submit a report to the University Police, detailing the incident without revealing the identity of the victim. The purpose of this type of report is to respect an individual’s wish to keep personally identifying information confidential, while taking steps to ensure an accurate record of the number of incidents; determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method or assailant; and alert the University community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner may be counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution, and may result in a timely warning or emergency notification. Confidential Crime Reporting Except for the referenced reports made to pastoral counselors and licensed professional counselors, all Campus Security Authorities are obligated to report all Clery Act offenses to the Lehigh University Police Department. It is also important for University CSAs to report statistical information, which may not include personal information. Confidential reports that provide sufficient detailed information for classification of the offense by law enforcement officials using FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Guidelines will be included in crime statistics. Crimes may be reported online at https:// police.lehigh.edu/content/report-crime. Timely Warnings Lehigh will issue Timely Warnings to the campus community for Clery-reportable crimes occurring on its Clery Act Geography, when such crimes are reported to Campus Security Authorities or to local police agencies and considered by the University to represent serious or continuing threats to students and employees. For definitions of Clery Act Offenses and Clery Act Geography, see the section of this report on the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics starting on page 34, with the definitions beginning on page 34. The Clery definitions can be found at: https:// police.lehigh.edu/content/clery-act-reportable-crimes. Whether an incident constitutes a serious or continuing threat to students and employees is a case-by-case determination that may take into account the following criteria: (1) a Clery-reportable crime is reported; (2) the perpetrator has not been apprehended; and (3) there is a substantial risk to the safety of other members of the campus community because of this crime. Lehigh University may issue Timely Warnings for the following: arson; aggravated assault; criminal homicide; domestic violence; dating violence; robbery; burglary; motor vehicle theft; sexual assault; hate crimes; and stalking. The University also may issue a Timely Warning for alcohol, drug, and weapon arrests or referrals that may cause a continuing threat to the campus community. Lehigh University will distribute Timely Warnings (https://police.lehigh.edu/content/clery-act-timely-warnings-and-emergency-notifications) to the entire campus community through a variety of methods, including, but not limited to: campus-wide emails, desktop notifications, classroom announcements, web postings, and social media. The University also has the ability to

11 2022 ANNUAL SECURITY & ANNUAL FIRE SAFETY REPORT send push notifications and text message alerts through HawkWatch. At Lehigh University, the Office of the Chief of Police will, generally, review all reports to make the determination, and in consultation with other offices, such as University Communications, make the decision as to whether a Timely Warning is required. However, in emergency situations, any police supervisor and/or police dispatcher may authorize a Timely Warning. For incidents involving off-campus crimes, the University may issue a Timely Warning if the crime occurred in a location used and frequented by the University population. Although the Clery Act does not define “timely,” the intent of such a warning is to enable our community to protect itself. This means that a warning is issued as soon as pertinent information is available and verified, so that it can be used as a preventive tool, and not solely constitute a description of the incident. The amount and type of information presented in a Timely Warning will vary depending on the specific facts and circumstances of the crime. If there is certain information that could compromise law enforcement efforts, those facts may be withheld from the Timely Warning notice. Generally, the warning will specify the type of crime reported, the time and location at which the reported crime occurred, and specific advice to the campus community regarding steps to take to avoid becoming a victim. In certain circumstances, an incident may not meet the criteria of a Clery-reportable crime occurring in a Clery-reportable location, but may constitute a serious or ongoing threat to the campus community. For such instances in which Timely Warnings are not required, the Chief of Police, or a designee, may choose to issue an “Alert,” notifying the Lehigh community of the threat. The content of such an Alert may vary depending on the type of incident reported and the location in which it occurred. Emergency Notifications The decision to initiate an emergency notification usually starts with the Lehigh University Police Department at the point of confirming a significant emergency or dangerous situation occurring on the campus that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees. Predicting how and when crisis situations will strike is difficult, so preparation is critical. Depending on the nature of an emergency, certain members of the Crisis Management Team, including the Operations Group, or their designee, are notified and come together to make determinations about, among other things, confirming the existence of the emergency or dangerous situation, initiating the emergency notification system, determining the appropriate segments of the campus to receive an emergency notification, and determining the content of the emergency notification and the notification procedures utilized as described below. The Lehigh University Police Department engages University Communications to review language as appropriate and send notifications if the police are otherwise engaged in responding to a situation. The determination of point persons is made on a case-by-case basis depending on the nature of the situation. Confirming the Existence of a Significant Emergency or Dangerous Situation, and Initiating the Emergency Notification System The Lehigh University Police Department will work with local authorities, when appropriate, to confirm whether the incident constitutes a “significant emergency or dangerous situation occurring on the campus that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees,” such that an emergency notification is warranted. Upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation occurring on the campus that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees, the Lehigh University Police Department, in consultation with University Communications, will, without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system, unless issuing a notification would, in the professional judgment of the first responders, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to or otherwise mitigate the emergency. Determining the Appropriate Segment(s) of the Campus Community to Receive an Emergency Notification Generally, campus community members in the immediate area of the dangerous situation (i.e., the building, adjacent buildings, or surrounding area) will receive the emergency notification first. The Lehigh University Police Department will continually evaluate the situation and assess the need to notify additional segments of the campus population (consulting with University Communications as needed). Determining the Content of the Emergency Notification Generally, the Lehigh University Police Department will identify the situation, the location, and the immediate protective action that should be taken, consulting with University Communications on appropriate messaging as needed.

12 LEHIGH UNIVERSITY Procedures Used to Notify the Campus Community In the event of a situation that poses an immediate threat to members of the campus community, the campus has various systems in place for communicating information quickly. Some or all of these methods of communication may be activated in the event of an emergency. These methods of communications include the following: HawkWatch alerts HawkWatch alerts include text messages, push notifications, emails, desktop notifications and voicemail messages sent to the campus community in the event of an emergency or a weather circumstance that may impact normal campus operations. To verify that your information is correct or to enroll, please visit https:// www1.lehigh.edu/emergency#hawkwatchalerts. Sirens Sirens on all campuses serve as notification that there is imminent danger and that more information should be sought via the University website, https://www1.lehigh. edu/emergency/prepared/siren. Classroom announcements Classroom announcements are relayed via speakers in classrooms across campus. Safety Bulletins Safety Bulletins are emails sent to the campus community to advise on health and safety issues. Telephone messages at 610-758-NEWS (6397) Telephone messages at 610-758-NEWS are updated when an emergency happens or when the campus is closed or opening is delayed due to weather. Official Facebook and Twitter pages Official Facebook and Twitter pages are utilized to convey the status of an emergency situation or to relay a closing due to inclement weather as well as to monitor the accuracy of campus interpretations of emergency circumstances. Like www.facebook.com/lehighu and follow twitter.com/lehighu. Website updates and banners Website updates and banners are placed on the University home page to repeat what is sent out via HawkWatch Alerts. Call Center A call center can be activated with trained campus or other staff to take calls and provide answers when campus operators are overwhelmed. Testing Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures: Drills, Exercises, and Training To ensure that campus emergency management plans remain current and actionable, Lehigh conducts tests of equipment and procedures to assess and evaluate the emergency response plans and capabilities of the University. These tests may be announced or unannounced and include both exercises and drills. Lehigh will document for each test: a description of the exercises, the date, the time, and whether it was announced or unannounced. Each year, Lehigh will remind the community of the University’s emergency notification system and emergency response procedures. Further information for fire-specific safety drills, exercises and training can be found on page 42. Emergency Evacuation Procedures The campus of Lehigh University is located on both sides of a mountain surrounded by the city of Bethlehem on the north side and residential communities on the south side. In the event a crisis occurred where the whole campus needed to be evacuated quickly, an evacuation would be ordered by the Chief of Police. The only time this would occur is if all the buildings were at risk or were considered uninhabitable. An example of this might include an earthquake, tornado or large-scale fire where all the living areas were damaged or at risk of severe damage. In general, the evacuation procedures due to an emergency event such as a building fire alarm, chemical spill, or gas leak for each building should be followed and the general evacuation procedures would apply: • All fire alarms should be treated as an actual emergency situation and all appropriate protocols should be followed by everyone without exception. • When the fire alarm sounds, evacuation of the building is mandatory. • Do not use elevators. • Contain fire by closing doors and windows prior to exiting the building. • Take personal belongings (keys, cellphones, purses, etc.) and weather-appropriate clothing with you as you leave the building. • If time permits, secure any hazardous, sensitive or confidential materials prior to leaving your area. • Go to the nearest emergency exit of the building and proceed to the rally point. Know the primary and secondary rally site for each building you frequent during the workday. • All rally sites should be located a minimum of 150 feet from your building and must not impede the

13 2022 ANNUAL SECURITY & ANNUAL FIRE SAFETY REPORT movement of emergency vehicles/responders at the site of the incident. • If you frequent several buildings on campus and do not know where each rally site is located, please do one of the following to be prepared: speak with the building monitor in that building to identify the location of the rally sites, contact Environmental Health & Safety, follow the suggestion listed above (move 150 feet away from the building to a location that does not impede the progress of emergency vehicles or responders). • Individuals are instructed to not return to the evacuated building until advised to do so by emergency personnel or the individuals conducting the proactive emergency drill. More information can be found at the following link: https:// facilities.lehigh.edu/emergency-evacuation-procedures. The Lehigh University Police Department The Lehigh University Police Department and other first responders will also provide on-site direction in the event of an emergency at https://police.lehigh.edu/. At least twice per year, we test our emergency communications systems, including HawkWatch messaging and the campus sirens, to ensure that they are fast and reliable. Additionally, the Crisis Management Team conducts monthly meetings to discuss hypothetical scenarios and/or to evaluate real experiences (at Lehigh or on other campuses) in order to maintain an active state of preparation for emergencies of all types. The work of the Crisis Management Team is audited periodically by risk management professionals. Crisis Management Team Planning for possible emergencies of all types is undertaken with diligence. A disaster and emergency preparedness plan has been assembled. It includes more than two dozen department/unit protocols for responding to specific emergencies, developed under the guidance of the Office of Risk Management, the Office of the General Counsel and the Director of Health and Environmental Safety using best practices. The plan is evaluated and reviewed regularly, and practiced locally, as appropriate or required. In the event of a crisis, or even when unusual occurrences unfold on or around the campus, a team of senior campus leaders, called the Crisis Management Team, initiates internal information sharing and dialogue as needed. Their primary focus is to provide leadership and policy decision-making, the capability to mobilize necessary resources, to support the operational experts that are normally the first responders to a campus emergency/crisis situation (campus police, environmental safety staff, student life personnel, etc.), and to ensure that the President and Board of Trustees are kept informed. Additionally, the Crisis Management Team assesses the possible impact of the circumstances on our campus community members and campus operations and determines the need for additional communications, decisions, or University responses to the specific emergency/crisis. The following individuals were serving on the Crisis Management Team as of the date this Report was issued: Chair, Kim Nimmo, Director of Risk Management Ricardo Hall, Vice President for Student Affairs Cheryl Matherly, Vice President and Vice Provost for International Affairs Frank Roth, General Counsel Brett Ludwig, Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs Jason Schiffer, Assistant Vice President of Campus Safety Carina Sitkus, Director of Communications Joe Sterrett, Murray H. Goodman Dean of Athletics Nathan Urban, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Erik Walker, Chief of Staff, Office of the President Crisis Management Team – Operations (CMTO) The Lehigh University Crisis Management Team – Operations (CMTO) supports the University in an effort to reduce loss of life and property, to protect the environment through collaboration, and to improve our capabilities to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

Be Prepared Emergencies, disasters or accidents can happen at any time or without warning. Potential emergencies at Lehigh University, both natural and man-made, may require that community members be prepared to evacuate from University buildings. Students, faculty and staff should become familiar with University buildings and be familiar with the following guidelines: • Know at least two building exits other than the elevators. • Know the location and operation of the building fire alarm system. • Know emergency phone numbers. • Know the building monitor in your area/building, along with your primary rally site and alternate site. For more information on the Building Monitors Program, visit the Environmental Health and Safety Web site at https:// campussafety.lehigh.edu/environmental-health-safety • Participate in all announced and unannounced fire drills. • Begin to evacuate at the first sign of smoke, fire alarm or an evacuation notice. • Do not return to your building until cleared by on- location emergency personnel or you are notified by an official campus communication. • Download the HawkWatch personal safety app, which puts the user in direct contact with the Campus Safety dispatcher, provides critical information on how to respond to emergency situations, tracks Lehigh University buses and allows the user to quickly access emergency resources. There are also options such as “Friend Walk,” which allows the user to connect with friends who can chart the users’ movements as they make their way to the desired location.
