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.
