Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report
As an institution of higher learning, United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities (United) is required under the Higher Education Act as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act to publish statistics related to crimes and fires and weapons, drug and alcohol violations. In addition, United is required to publish its Emergency Response and Evacuation Policies and Procedures and its Missing Student Notification Policy.
For the years 2009, 2010 and 2011 the following crimes have been reported:
- Criminal offenses on campus, in student housing or on public property: zero
- Hate crimes on campus, in student housing or on public property: zero
- Weapons, alcohol and drug violations: zero
- Arrests on campus, in student housing or on public property: zero
- Disciplinary actions: zero
Any alleged crime will be reported without delay to local law enforcement by the president or her designee. Due to its small size, the seminary does not maintain its own campus security department. At the present time the seminary does not have written Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with local and state agencies for the investigation of alleged criminal offenses. It is the policy of the seminary to cooperate with local law authorities.
Missing Student Notification: the policy is published in the Masters Student Handbook (page 121).
Emergency Response and Evacuation Policies and Procedures: the policy is published in the Masters Student Handbook (page 117).
For the years 2009, 2010 and 2011 no fires have been reported. Any incidence of fire should be immediately reported to the director of physical plant.
The on-campus apartment building, Huenemann House, is equipped with a fire security system with 24-hour monitoring by an independent monitoring company.
Policies regarding portable electrical appliances, smoking and open flames in student housing are described in the Student Housing Handbook.
Procedures for student housing evacuation are posted in Huenemann House.
Fire safety education for students, faculty and staff is conducted annually during the fall semester in conjunction with a fire drill. The most recent fire drill was conducted November 8, 2012.
