Safety and Security

As part of our compliance with regulations mandated for institutions that participate in the Title IV Federal Student Loan Program, Spertus Institute makes a number of policies, reports, and related resources available to our students, faculty, and employees.

These include emergency and evacuation procedures, the reporting of crimes and crime statistics, and policies related to sexual harassment, assault, and drug and alcohol abuse. This material is collected in the Annual Security Report, which is sent to students, faculty, and employees and at the end of each year, it is be posted here and on the Transparency page of the Spertus Institute website.

In addition, we have provided links to other websites that provide important information and prevention tips.
