Drury University’s Safety and Security Office compiles an annual report to keep the campus community informed about crime statistics and safety policies. The information also is used to assess and identify ways to strengthen campus safety and emergency planning university-wide. Campus crime statistics are compiled in accordance with the procedures set forth by the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act” (commonly known as the “Clery Act”). Copies of the report are available upon request. Requests can be made at the Safety and Security Office, Findlay Student Center Room 101. You can also access the report online. Drury is committed to providing a safe, education-oriented and community-minded campus that maintains an academic and social environment conducive to intellectual and personal development of students while promoting the safety and welfare of all members of the campus community. As such, the University cooperates with authorities in the enforcement of all applicable laws.
