At Michigan State University, safety is taken very seriously. Each member of the campus community including students, faculty, and staff, should take an active role in preventing and reporting incidents that jeopardize safety on and around campus to the MSU Department of Police and Public Safety.
Michigan State University, in compliance with the Clery Act, publishes an annual report to provide its students and employees with an overview of the university’s security and safety resources, policies, and procedures. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is produced by the Clery Act Compliance Coordinator and is distributed annually to all current students and employees. A paper copy of the report may be obtained by contacting the MSU's Clery Act Compliance Coordinator. The university also reports the annual crime and fire statistics contained in this report to the U.S. Department of Education.
