About MSU Billings (cont'd)
Annual Crime Report
In November of 1990, the Student Right-to-Know Act was signed into law and is now known as the Jeanne Clery Act. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act mandates that institutions of higher education report and make available to both current and prospective students and employees the occurrences of specific crimes at each respective campus. In addition to the number of reported specified crimes, the institutions must report the number of arrests for liquor violations, drug-abuse violations, and weapon violations. The report is available online, through the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, (406) 657-2307, or the Office of Human Resources /EEO-AA, (406) 657-2278.
Safety & Security
In response to concerns about campus safety, Montana State University Billings will be installing digital clocks in every classroom which will double as an emergency communication device to warn students of potential hazards. Cameras are also being installed in various parking lots and training is planned on “shelter in place” practices. The Emergency Crisis Communications Committee is meeting regularly to implement additional security.
