Safety + Security
We care about your safety
At UW-Eau Claire – Barron County, safety and security is one of our top priorities. We want all students, faculty + staff, and visitors to feel safe when they are on campus and be informed about out policies.
Annual Campus Security Reports
The UW-Eau Claire – Barron County Annual Security Report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by campus and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
The reports also include institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters.
Students will be notified each year, via e-mail, when the updated report is published. Copies of the report can be obtained from the Student Services Office.
The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000 (CSCPA) is an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act. The CSCPA requires sex offenders to provide notice of enrollment or employment at any institution of higher education (IHE) in that state where the offender resides, as well as notice of each change of enrollment or employment status at the IHE. Learn more at the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry.
