The USC Department of Public Safety today posted the 2023 Annual Security & Fire Safety Report (ASFSR). This report is mandated by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, a federal law that requires colleges and universities across the country to disclose information about crimes reported on campus and its surrounding areas. In order to promote awareness and safety, the Clery Act also requires the university to notify prospective students and employees of the availability of the ASFSR so they may request a copy of the report.
We are committed to the ONE USC Safety Vision, creating an environment where everyone feels safe, respected, and protected from being a crime victim – and where the diverse experiences and needs of all USC students, faculty, staff, and neighbors throughout USC’s spheres of influence are addressed.
We also are committed to our Unifying Values, which include open communication and well-being. The ASR aligns with our commitment to these values by providing important information about resources, reporting, and steps USC takes to focus on the well-being of those in our campus community. We are committed to providing an environment where we each can thrive and explore all USC has to offer.
Our students, faculty, and staff, as well as those who visit our campus, are part of a vibrant and thriving community where we strive for excellence and share openly to empower each other on our paths to success.
USC’s 2023 Annual Security & Fire Safety Report is now available online. Individuals also may request a paper copy by contacting Gabe Gates, Associate Vice President for Clery Act Compliance & Youth Protection, by email at email@example.com.
