The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act final rule of November 1, 1999 designates certain members of the university community as Campus Security Authorities. This group includes but is not limited to: a dean of students who oversees student housing, a student center, or student extra-curricular activities; or a director of athletics, team coach, or a faculty adviser to a student group. The following are probably not campus security authorities: a single teaching faculty member (other than an adviser to a student group); or a physician in a campus health center or a counselor in a counseling center whose only responsibility is to provide care to students; or campus clerical staff.
The purpose of this policy is to establish procedures for the University’s response to reports of missing students, as required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (“the Act”).
Wake Forest University uses cell phone numbers of students, faculty and staff to send text alerts during an emergency.
