Introduction
Kansas State University is committed to providing a safe and
inclusive environment for all people. To help members of the
K-State community make informed decisions regarding their
safety, the university’s Annual Security Report is published each
year.
While K-State has not experienced a significant number of
major crimes in the past, crime is a national concern that affects
us all. Developing and maintaining a safe and secure campus
environment is the responsibility of the entire K-State community:
security personnel, faculty, staff, students and visitors.
The Office of Student Life annually prepares and distributes the
K-State Annual Security Report in compliance with the Jeanne
Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime
Statistics Act, formerly known as The Student Right to Know
and Campus Security Act.
Notice of the availability of the Annual Security Report is
distributed to every member of the university community by
Oct. 1 each year. Anyone, including perspective students and
employees, may obtain a paper copy by contacting the Office
of Student Life.

Alcohol
Alcohol poisoning
Alcohol poisoning is a medical emergency. Know the signs and
resources to assist in an emergency.
Signs of alcohol poisoning:
• Passed out or difficult to wake.
• Cold, clammy, pale or bluish skin.
• Slowed breathing.
• Vomiting while asleep or awake.
Know how to help:
• Turn a vomiting person on his or her side to prevent choking.
• Keep the person awake.
• Never leave the person unattended.
• **Never be afraid to get the help an individual needs. Call
911 or K-State police at 785-532-6412.
**Lifeline 911 policy
Because it’s important that victims of alcohol-related
emergencies receive medical treatment as soon as possible,
the Lifeline 911 policy means that K-State students who
seek immediate medical assistance for an alcohol-related
emergency on behalf of themselves or another person will not
be sanctioned for violation of any university alcohol-related
policies. This policy allows students to make healthy decisions
by seeking medical help without the fear of punishment.

Suicide
Suicide-risk factors, signs and prevention
Suicide is the second-leading cause of death in college students.
It is also one of the most preventable forms of death. Because
suicides and nonfatal suicide attempts have direct, profound,
costly and emotionally damaging effects on the entire community,
we strive to prevent both by educating K-State community
members about suicide prevention strategies.
By understanding the risk factors and learning how to
interact with someone who may be suicidal, suicide may be
prevented. Ninety percent of individuals who complete suicide
demonstrate some type of warning sign they are considering
taking their own life.
Warning signs for suicide
Suicidal thoughts or comments, such as:
• “People would be better off without me.”
• “I can’t live like this anymore.”
• “I might as well be dead.”
• “I could do _______ to kill myself.”
Behavioral cues, such as:
• Purchasing a gun.
• Stockpiling pills.
• Giving away money or prized possessions.
• Dramatic change in behavior.
• Sudden interest or disinterest in religion.
•Hopelessness.
▪5▪
•Rage.
• Uncontrolled anger.
• Seeking revenge.
• Acting reckless or engaging in risky activities, seemingly
without thinking.
• Feeling trapped or like there’s no way out.
• Increased alcohol or drug use.
• Withdrawing from friends, family and society.
•Anxiety.
•Agitation.
• Inability to sleep or sleeping all the time.
• Dramatic mood changes.
• Expressing no reason for living or no sense of purpose in life.
• Themes of death in conversation or other communication,
including social media and texts.
• Prior suicide attempts.
Observing any of these warning signs in yourself or someone
you knows means it’s crucial to get help. Asking someone if
they are considering suicide DOES NOT increase risk of them
taking action. Research has shown that once a person has been
asked about suicide, they experience relief, not distress. Once
the question has been asked, fully LISTEN to what that person
has to say and take steps to persuade them to get help. You
may ask the individual any of the following:
If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide,
consult with a mental health professional. Resources on campus
include University Counseling Services and the Family Center.
Crime prevention and safety and
security
Safety is a shared responsibility among students,
faculty and staff
Keeping K-State safe depends on the cooperation, involvement
and support of all university community members. Carefully
assess and modify your own behaviors and habits to lessen
your vulnerability to unsafe conditions. We cannot list specific
measures that will protect you from every threatening situation
that may arise. Instead, we hope to teach you how to think
“crime prevention” in day-to-day living. The suggestions
presented should not be thought of a list of crime prevention
measures, but as examples of common-sense behavior that will
help you make life safer and more secure:
Protect yourself
• Download and use LiveSafe, K-State’s safety app.
• Know how to recognize and use the emergency safety
phones on campus.
• Will you go with me to see a counselor?
• Report any suspicious activity or person to the police
immediately.
• Will you let me help you make an appointment with a
counselor/doctor/etc.?
• Walk and jog with a friend, and use Wildcat Walk when
available.
▪6▪
• Use the best lit and most traveled walkways at night.
• Ask visitors to identify themselves before allowing them
access to your residence.
• Park your car in lighted areas.
• Sign up for K-State Alerts.
Lock up
• Always lock the door where you live, even when leaving for
a short period of time.
• Always lock your car, your bike and other valuables.
• When you return to your car, have the key ready to open
the door.
• Never prop open exterior doors to residential areas.
Prevent theft
• Don’t leave personal items such as laptops, phones, or
textbooks unattended — even for a short amount of time.
• Engrave your valuable items at the K-State Police
Department (no charge).
• Keep a list of valuable possessions including the makes,
models, and serial numbers.
• Don’t keep large amounts of money on you.
Preventing campus crime is a shared responsibility between
the university and the campus community. Public apathy
is a criminal’s greatest ally. Remember, suspicion is the only
reason anyone needs for calling the police. Crimes, suspicious
activity, or other emergencies on campus should be reported
immediately. Do not assume that someone else has reported
harmful, suspicious or criminal activity.
If you suspect a crime has been or is being committed, call
the Kansas State University Police Department immediately.

Reporting to KSUPD
We encourage all members of the K-State community to report
all crimes and other emergencies to KSUPD. The department
has a dispatch center available 24 hours a day at 785-5326412. KSUPD encourages all crimes to be reported, whether an
investigation continues or not, to assure all community safety
and security concerns can be addressed.
Bystander intervention
Bystanders play a critical role in the prevention of sexual
assaults, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. For
example, bystanders may have the power to stop assaults, get
help for people who have been victimized, and/or alert the
appropriate authorities. Kansas State University is committed to
promoting a culture of shared accountability where bystanders
are actively engaged in the prevention of prohibited
conduct. As such, all members of the university community
are encouraged to intervene or interrupt any acts of sexual
violence they witness.
The following are ways bystanders can intervene:
• When it is safe to do so, confront or report people
who seclude, hit on or sexually assault people who are
incapacitated.
• Speak up when someone discusses plans to take sexual
advantage of another person.
• Call the police when a person is being physically abusive
toward another.
• Refuse to leave the area — or call police — if a person
is trying to get you to leave so they can sexually take
advantage of another.
• Ensure community members who are incapacitated are not
left alone or in vulnerable situations.

Procedures to follow
if a crime of sexual
assault, domestic
violence, dating
violence, or stalking has occurred
1001 S. Seth Child Road,
rileycountypolice.org
Manhattan, KS 66502
If any member of the university community — student, staff
or guest — is the victim of crime, you should call the KSUPD
immediately.
The KSUPD facilitates Silent Witness, a confidential and
anonymous reporting procedure available to anyone who
elects to report crimes or suspicious activity.
Numerous options are available for support and reporting
on campus and within the Manhattan community if an
individual is a victim of sexual assault, dating violence or
stalking. Accessing these options will depend on the wishes of
the survivor; however, it is important to note there is no one
▪7▪
“correct” response, simply different options to access resources
and reporting options. To explore options confidentially an
individual may want to speak with an advocate.
The following information outlines a victim’s options, should a
sexual or physical assault occur:
• First and foremost, find a safe space — Safety should
always be the first priority following an assault.
• Consider taking steps to preserve all physical evidence
— the victim is advised to not bathe, shower, brush teeth,
douche or change clothing until they receive a medical
exam.
• Find support — Contacting a close friend, relative or
victim advocate who can provide support and accompany
the victim to the medical exam and/or police department,
should they choose to go. Advocates from the Center for
Advocacy, Response and Education (CARE), are available to
the victim to provide support.
• Get medical attention as soon as possible — An exam
may reveal the presence of physical injury that the victim
is unaware of. The health and safety of all victims is of the
upmost importance. The state of Kansas allows victims
of sexual assault to preserve evidence, with or without
reporting to law enforcement. If you choose at the time
Reporting Options
• Consider talking to a Center for Advocacy, Response,
and Education (CARE) Coordinator: CARE Coordinators
provide assistance for victimized individuals and assist with
communication and referrals to other offices and agencies
on and off campus, including law enforcement, legal,
medical, and academic resources.
Reporting
• Consider talking to the Office of Institutional Equity
(OIE) — An act of sexual violence, domestic violence,
dating violence, or stalking may violate the university’s
Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual
Violence, and Stalking (PPM 3010), and thus violations are
subject to disciplinary sanctions through a report to the
Office of Institutional Equity. Alleged violations of PPM
3010 will be processed by OIE. If OIE reviews a report and
determines that the report, if true, would constitute a
violation of the PPM 3010 then an Administrative Review
Team (ART) is formed. The ART evaluates the report, which
can include an investigation, and makes findings of fact. If
a violation of the policy is found, disciplinary sanctions will
be recommended up to and including exclusion from the
campus, dismissal from employment, or expulsion from the

of your exam not to report to law enforcement, the
evidence collected at your exam will be sent to the
Kansas Bureau of Investigation and held for five years.
A Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) can be performed
at your local or regional medical center. In addition
to preserving and documenting evidence, obtaining
medical attention might also entail providing prophylaxis,
sexually transmitted infection testing, and follow-up
treatment. Emergency contraception can be provided to
victims at risk of pregnancy from the assault (if the victim
is seen within 120 hours). If the victim reports memory
loss, loss of consciousness or other circumstances
suspicious for a drug-facilitated assault, a urine test may
be done within 96 hours. Some of the commonly used
drugs, however, are only detectable in the urine for six to
eight hours after ingestion.

University. For more information on the PPM 3010 and the
university’s procedures for investigating alleged violations,
visit k-state.edu/affact/resolution.
• Consider talking to the Police — Sexual and physical
assault are crimes. It is important to remember that
reporting a crime is not the same as prosecuting the crime.
After a thorough investigation, the decision to prosecute is
determined by the county attorney.
Regardless of where the violence occurred, or if an individual
chooses to make a report to the university, K-State will provide
a victim with an explanation of rights and options including,
but not limited to, how to access counseling or therapeutic
services, medical services, victim advocacy, legal assistance,
visa and immigration assistance, and student financial aid
assistance. Additionally, the university offers reasonably
available changes to academic, living, transportation or
working situations if requested by a victim.
These changes may be limited if there is no report to OIE and/
or no finding that a policy violation occurred.
Additional tips and strategies for issues relating to PPM 3010:
• Surround yourself with people who respect each other
and you: Don’t tolerate disrespect or pressure in your
community.
Individuals may contact the Office of Student Life or OIE
for support and resources, including reasonable changes.
If students, faculty, or staff want to maintain complete
confidentiality, they may contact CARE for resources, including
advocacy and reasonable changes. Reasonable changes can
include, but are not limited to:

Recognize that healing from an attack takes time. Give yourself
the time you need and know that it is never too late to get
help. Psychological trauma caused by sexual assault can be
severe and long lasting, or may temporarily affect your mood,
concentration, academics, relationships, or physiology. Many
individuals have found it useful to speak with one of the CARE
office’s Advocates.
The advocates provide information and referrals, and will
explore options and possibilities that are right for each person.

sexual misconduct can take the form of patterns of
behavior, such as isolation, intimidation, and threats.
• Take repeated, unwanted attention seriously: Stalking can
sometimes seem merely annoying or even flattering, but
the intrusive nature of staling can escalate very quickly and
must be taken seriously.
• Remember We are ALL entitled to study and work in a
respectful environment.
Take Back the Night and other public awareness
events
Public awareness events such as Take Back the Night, candlelight
vigils, protests, survivor speak outs or other forums in which
students or employees disclose incidents of sexual misconduct,
sexual violence, sexual harassment or stalking, are not
considered notice to the university of prohibited conduct for
purposes of triggering its obligation to investigate any particular
incident(s). Such events may, however, inform the need for
campuswide education and prevention efforts, and K-State may

prevention and/or programing efforts at these events.
Eligible K-Staters can add contact information of parents,
children and spouses when they sign up.

K-State Alerts
Kansas State University’s emergency notification system, gives
campus authorities the ability to communicate emergency
information quickly to the university community using some or
all of the following channels:
• Text messaging
• Automated phone calls
• Broadcast emails to all @k-state.edu accounts
• Alert beacons
• Police public address systems
• Campus carillon in the Anderson Hall tower
• Tornado warning sirens
• K-State staff carrying radios
• Postings to the K-State website
K-State Alerts is used when a dangerous condition exists on
campus (e.g., active shooter, storm in process, dangerous debris
from storm), when a decision to close the campus has been
made or when a decision to reopen the campus following a
forced closure has been made.
To receive emergency notifications by text or phone, you
must enroll in K-State Alerts through the eProfile system.
Only current faculty, staff, and students with an active eID are
eligible to sign up for text messages and phone alerts. This
includes K-Staters at the Manhattan and Salina campuses,
distance students and those at research and extension offices.

The Faculty/Staff Student of Concern Guide consolidates
emergency and support information for use when working
with students of concern.
How to use the Faculty/Staff Student of Concern Guide
When a student of concern has been identified, the Faculty/
Staff Student of Concern Guide provides a quick overview of
K-State student support offices and emergency services. The
guide has detailed support information, protocols and resource
information, and it helps determine whether an issue is beyond
a faculty or staff member’s ability to provide support. The guide
also provides important information about the Family Education
Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA; the reporting requirements for
Title IX; and information on sexual assault resources.
Campus access
Campus law enforcement
The Kansas State University Police Department (KSUPD) helps
preserve a safe campus environment where diverse social,
cultural and academic values are allowed to develop and
prosper.
KSUPD has approximately 23 police officers serving the campus
community. Patrols operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week,
365 days a year through the campus, KSU Foundation property,
parking lots, residence halls, Jardine apartments and athletic
complex grounds.
University police officers derive their authority from KSA
76-726 and are fully commissioned law enforcement officers
vested with full police/law enforcement authority with arrest
powers. Officers are state-certified and receive their basic
law enforcement training from the Kansas Law Enforcement
Training Academy. Officers receive a minimum of 40 hours
of in-service training each year to maintain their state
certification.
KSUPD also has a staff of 11 full-time security officers and
eight part-time student security officers. Security personnel
are responsible for unlocking and locking campus buildings,
performing routine laboratory and building inspections for fire,
and for safety-related problems. Security personnel also patrol
buildings and campus grounds to report suspicious activity and
unsafe conditions.
KSUPD dispatchers monitor telephones and a two-way radio
the police department at 108 Edwards Hall, 1810 Kerr
Drive; phone reports at 785-532-6412; LiveSafe app;
or anonymously online at KSUPD’s crime reporting
website, k-state.edu/police/silent.
An assigned officer will investigate, make an arrest
when appropriate, and prepare a detailed report of
the incident. When necessary, an assigned uniform
officer or department investigator will perform an
investigative follow-up.
Criminal offenses are referred to the office of
the Manhattan City Attorney or the Riley County
Attorney for prosecution. Noncriminal acts and
violations of university policy are referred to the
Office of Student Life, K-State Housing and Dining
Services, Student Governing Association Judicial
Board, or the appropriate college dean for resolution.
service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to give information and
respond to emergencies. They can instantly dispatch fire or
emergency medical service and communicate with local and
state police agencies when needed. Dispatchers monitor the
national weather service radio network.
KSUPD dispatchers also continuously monitor the interface
for the LiveSafe app and the emergency telephones located
throughout campus and residence hall parking lots. Officers
respond to the location of the emergency phones once
activated. The dispatcher also monitors several closed-circuit
television cameras placed throughout the campus.
Working relationship with state and local law
enforcement agencies
KSUPD maintains a very close working relationship with local,
state and federal law enforcement agencies in an effort to
maximize the services provided to the university community.
Close contact and coordination of services are maintained with
the Riley County Police Department (RCPD) on a daily basis,
and it provides crime statistics for our annual report. KSUPD
and RCPD responsibilities are described in a memorandum of
understanding between the two agencies.
All reports are forwarded to the university police department’s
record section for review and processing. These are confidential

to be disclosed to the public or to university administrators,
except when court ordered. The department maintains
statistical data from these reports for appropriate use and is
available to the public upon request.
Responding to calls
Every call is checked by an officer. Reported criminal acts or
emergencies on campus result in an officer being immediately
dispatched to the location of occurrence. The dispatcher will
also notify other emergency services, such as fire or ambulance,
and university offices, including the Office of Student Life or the
Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, which may need
to respond. Other means to report crimes include coming to

Campus security and access
Buildings and grounds
The Division of Public Safety’s security employees lock
the doors of buildings — except those to which access is
necessary — nightly by 10 p.m. The doors are unlocked in
the mornings by 7:30 a.m. Security employees walk through
selected buildings each night to check locked office doors
and other security related matters. Custodial support is
scheduled in some facilities from 3-11 p.m. for additional
security. This scheduling provides additional persons in the
buildings to reduce the opportunities for unlawful activities.
Any exterior doors found to be malfunctioning are reported to
the locksmith in the Division of Facilities. The doors are made
functional as soon as possible. Members of the Kansas Fire
Marshal’s Office inspect the buildings annually for fire safety.
Public access and the hours of campus operation continue to
expand. Evening classes and evening programs at the K-State
▪ 11 ▪
Student Union, McCain Auditorium, Nichols Theater and
the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art draw increasing
numbers of students and visitors to the campus after sunset.
Lighting and emergency phone upgrades will continue as
needed. New surveillance cameras have been installed. As
buildings and parking lots are upgraded, surveillance cameras
are included in the improvements.
The grounds section of the Division of Facilities is the
groundskeeper for the university. This unit trims trees, shrubs
and other vegetation regularly and upon request to ensure that
exterior lights are not blocked.
Student housing safety
Many Kansas State University students make their home on
campus by living in a residence hall, Jardine Apartment Complex
or in the university’s honors houses, while many other students
will live in an off-campus fraternity, sorority or scholarship house.
For all of these residents, safety is a university focus.
K-State Housing and Dining Services provides a number of security
features and safety programs for students who live on campus.
Residence halls/scholarship and honors houses
• A computerized access system requires the use of a K-State

Policies for timely
warnings
The Division of Public Safety, in consultation with campus
partners such as the Office of Student Life and the Division
of Communications and Marketing, issues timely warnings to
give students, faculty, and staff timely notification of crimes
that the division deems serious or continuing threats to the
campus community to aid in the prevention of similar crimes.
Timely warnings are considered a preventative and educational
measure as they make the campus community aware of
potential dangers to themselves or their property. Timely
warnings may also request information that could lead to arrest
and conviction of the offender.
A timely warning to members of the campus community is made
of the reported occurrence of any crime considered a threat to
students and employees that is reported to campus security or
local law enforcement agencies. Such crimes include murder,
sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor
vehicle theft, manslaughter and arson. This notification may
take the form of a press release, posted material, or through the
automated calling or the campus emergency notification system.

Emergency Management Plan
activation
When the Kansas State University Police Department (KSUPD)
or another entity determines than an emergency exists,
designated senior university administrators will be contacted
in the following order: university president, vice president
for administration and finance, provost, vice president for
student life and dean of students. If the university president
is unavailable (i.e., not on campus or within a 10-minute
drive of campus), the next person will be contacted. If none
of these senior university administrators is immediately
available, the assistant vice president for public safety has the
authority to activate the plan. Upon receipt of the call, the
senior university administrator will immediately determine
the scope of the incident and, as needed, will contact the
appropriate parties.
Levels of emergency notification
The process for activating K-State Alerts immediately begins
when a threat or emergency situation is reported to the KSUPD
or to another responsible university authority.
There are four levels of notifications under K-State Alerts:
Immediate, Urgent, Informative and Status Update/All-Clear.
leak/eruption, chemical spill, power failure in multiple buildings,
entrapment in building or equipment, winter storm or tornado
warning.
Informative
An Informative Notification to the campus community is made
when the president’s cabinet or another responsible university
authority has confirmed there is a need for the campus
population to be notified of a specific nonemergency event.
Immediate Notification
An Immediate Notification through K-State Alerts to the campus
community is made when KSUPD or another responsible
university authority has confirmed that an emergency situation
poses an immediate threat to life safety or
security of the campus population.
Level
Authorized by:
The KSUPD command staff, KSUPD
dispatcher, or the designated senior
university administrators are authorized
to make an Immediate Notification that
alerts and provides warning and safety
or protection instructions to the campus
community.
However, those listed above also have
the power not to authorize an Immediate
Notification to the campus if issuing
the message will create a more serious
emergency and/or compromise the
university’s efforts to contain the emergency.
Immediate
Examples of situations, but not limited
to, that could lead to an Immediate
Notification: Active shooter, tornado, major
fire, major flood, radioactive or chemical
contamination, disease outbreak, sustained
blizzard conditions, major natural gas
pipeline eruptions or extended utility
outage, etc.
Urgent Notification
An Urgent Notification to the campus
community is made immediately when
KSUPD or another responsible university
authority has confirmed that an emergency
situation may pose a threat to life safety or
security of the campus population.
The KSUPD command staff or the university
president’s cabinet may authorize a K-State
Alerts notification that warns campus
populations of the situation’s location and
provides precautionary actions.
As necessary, the assistant vice president/
chief of police will notify the university
president and president’s cabinet of the
situation, notifications authorized/issued
(or not authorized/issued), and any other
actions taken.
Examples, but not limited to, of possible
situations for Urgent Notification: Fire, bomb
threat, building evacuation, hostage situation,
terror-related event, natural gas or propane

Status Update/All-Clear
A Status Update Notification is made when there is new
information or instructions for the campus population; it may
provide an update on the situation or change protective actions.
An All-Clear Notification indicates that the emergency has been
contained.
Status Update and All-Clear Notifications should be timed such
that messages do not overlap. Status Update and All-Clear
Notifications are authorized by the person who is incident
command. The KSUPD dispatcher is authorized to send an
All-Clear Notification through K-State Alerts when a tornado
warning is lifted.
Emergency notification system authorizations
This section describes the authorization for issuing K-State
Alerts notifications.
Emergency notification procedures
In the event of a situation that may endanger life or adversely
affect the university in any campus location (internal or
external), the situation should be reported immediately by
calling KSUPD dispatch 785-532-6412 or by calling 911. Once an
officer confirms a significant emergency or dangerous situation
involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the
campus community is occurring, an emergency notification
will be sent. A message will be crafted by a senior duty staff,
dispatcher or a DCM news and communications staff member
and sent to the campus community — unless it is determined
that a segment or segments of the campus community should
not receive the notification.
K-State Alerts emergency notification system will be used
to notify faculty, staff and students of an existing threat to
K-State. K-State Alerts will use text messaging, voice messaging,
automated telephone calls, emails to all @ksu.edu accounts,
alert beacons, police public address systems, tornado sirens
with speakers, K-State staff carrying radios, and postings to
the K-State website to notify faculty, staff and students of an
emergency.
In addition to the above mentioned means of communication,
the university also will seek to notify its Riley County
partners and use public mass media (radio and television) for
appropriate announcements to keep campus and the local
community informed. Individuals are encouraged to minimize
the use of personal cellphones unless it is to report on the
status of the incident to assure their personal safety or the
▪ 18 ▪
safety of others. Mass use of cellphone systems typically results
in system overloads and the general failure of the system until
traffic diminishes.
For more information concerning emergency notification and
management, refer to the Emergency Management Plan at
k-state.edu/safety/docs/ksu-emergency-management-plan.pdf.
Emergency drills, testing and evacuation procedures
Kansas State University requires personnel with emergency
response duties to take ICS 100, 200 and 700. EOC or command
and general staff should also take ICS 300, 400, and 800,
and the president’s cabinet should take ICS-402, Summary
for Executives. A short training slide set is available on the
Environmental Health and Safety Web page, which explains
the National Institute Management System structure and
responsibilities for faculty and staff. The National Response Plan
(NRP) describes how the federal government will work with
state, local and tribal governments and the private sector to
respond to disasters.
Emergency warning and notification
The K-State Alerts system is tested twice a year on specified
days. Tests ensure that the K-State Alerts and Rave Mobile
Safety service are functioning properly. Notifications in advance
of the test will be published.
K-State conducts fully audible tests of emergency warning
and notification systems a minimum of once a semester. A full
test will activate the K-State Alerts system, test/voice, siren/
PA system and all other resources include in the K-State Alerts
system. A K-State Today article will notify the campus of an
upcoming test of the alerts, and will also notify campus about
any follow-up information.
Emergency exercises, drills
K-State’s emergency management will conduct and assess
two tabletops for members of the university president’s
cabinet and/or designated alternates during the year. K-State’s
emergency management staff and the director of fire safety
will, upon request, work with colleges, departments or
university units on exercises, drills, a tabletop or workshop on
emergency issues.
University leadership emergency exercise
K-State’s Emergency Management will, in coordination with
its county partners of Riley County Emergency Management,
Riley County EMS, the Manhattan Fire Department and the
Riley County Police Department, attend workshops, tabletops,
drills or exercises addressing a specific emergency topic.
When there is an exercise with our partners on campus, a
notification of the event will be distributed by K-State’s Division
of Communications and Marketing. The university’s emergency
management staff will keep a record of the exercise as well as a
review of the events assessment.
K-State Housing and Dining Services
K-State Housing and Dining Services schedules four fire
drills per year at its residence halls and Jardine Apartments,
including one in the first 10 days of both the fall and spring
semesters, to provide practice for a real evacuation emergency.
Residents will receive notification of the general time of the
alarm, and housing staff will verify that alarms are working
properly and that residents have evacuated.
Campus fire safety
Fire safety in Kansas State University’s student housing is
a priority. The university’s student housing includes the
Jardine Apartment Complex; Smurthwaite Leadership/
Scholarship House and the Honors House; and Boyd, Ford,
Goodnow, Haymaker, Marlatt, Moore, Putnam, Van Zile
and West residence halls and Derby and Kramer dining
centers. The following is a look at fire safety procedures in
the university’s student housing. Fire safety activities are
organized by the university’s Department of Environmental
Health and Safety.
Fire safety education and training policies
Fire safety is a serious matter, especially in the university’s
student housing. Students, faculty and staff are expected to
learn the university’s fire safety policies and guidelines. To assist
in this process, K-State has several programs and policies for fire
safety education:
1.Instruction to each student at the first floor meeting.
2.Educational bulletin boards.
3.Training for professional and graduate-level staff on
building fire safety systems.
4.Training for paraprofessional staff on fire safety at the
beginning of each semester.
5.Conducting Fire Prevention Week activities for the
residence halls, including fire extinguisher training and
educational material distribution.
Fire drills
Reporting fires
Policies on portable electrical appliances,
smoking and open flames
Improvement plans
Fire drills in student housing facilities were performed twice
per semester, or four per calendar year. The first drill was
conducted within the first two weeks of each semester, and
at least one drill was conducted after sunset and before
sunrise. This is in compliance with the Kansas State Fire
Marshal; records of the drills are kept in the individual
buildings. For more information concerning fire drills, refer
to the handbook for the residence halls or for the Jardine
Apartment Complex handbook.
Air conditioners, space heaters, halogen lamps with an
exposed bulb, or any appliance with an open heating
element (including toasters, toaster ovens, hot plates, grilling
appliances, sandwich makers, etc.) are not permitted in the
residence halls. However, slow cookers that are 3 1/2 quarts
or less are allowed. Smoking is not permitted in any university
building and within 30 feet of a marked entrance, including
residence halls. Open flames or any devices that produce an
open flame are not allowed in the residence halls, regardless
of whether they are lit or not. This includes candles, incense
and incense burners.
Emergency evacuation procedures
In the event of an emergency in a student
housing facility, first contact the K-State
Police Department dispatch at 785-5326412 or 911 and describe the emergency.
Since emergency evacuation procedures
are room/site specific, each sleeping room
has an evacuation map and procedure
posted. Building staff are instructed on
building specific evacuation procedures
and written procedures are made available.
Date
Time
In the event of a fire in a student housing facility, the K-State
Police Department dispatch should be contacted immediately
by phone. Police dispatch can be reached at either 785-5326412 or 911. In addition, general fire alarm notifications are sent
electronically to Housing and Dining Services staff on site or
on call. These individuals include the associate director, safety
officer, shops manager, fire alarm systems manager, staff on
duty and the student service technician. This system is in place
to provide 24-hour coverage every day.
Plans and goals for improvement in fire safety in residence life
are in place at K-State. These plans include continued training
for professionals and student staff on fire safety systems and
procedures, and providing more time for the professional staff
to learn building-specific systems. Expanding active and passive
educational programs to include more information about fire
safety in the residence halls also is goal, as is the continued
education of students on proper evacuation processes,
which is offered at the first floor meetings in the fall semester.
Another goal is providing more education to K-State’s growing
international student population, including in languages other
than English. The Department of Environmental Health and
Safety will continue conducting the required fire drills, with
additional drills if needed. The university also will continue

Hall, 1810 Kerr Drive, Manhattan, KS 66506, or 785-532-5856,
[email protected]
Campus fire statistics
The following table contains the fire statistics for all on-campus
student housing at K-State. The information contains the date,
time, location, description and estimated cost of damage for
each fire incident.
Fire safety systems
The following tables offer a description of the fire safety
systems in each on-campus student housing facility. The tables
illustrate if each building has emergency lights, exit signs, fire
alarm systems, fire extinguishers, fire-rated corridors and fire
doors, fire-rated exit stairs, smoke detection systems, sprinkler
systems and standpipe systems. The ratings are Yes (the entire
building has the feature), No (the entire building does not have
the feature), Part (some parts of the building have the feature),
or N/A (the feature is not applicable for this building).
Missing student policy and
procedure
This notification policy and procedures apply only to students
who reside in campus housing (“resident students”). This
includes residence halls or apartments that are owned or
controlled by Kansas State University and that are designated
for student use. Although this policy does not apply to students
who live in off-campus housing, university staff and campus
police will assist local authorities in their investigation of an offcampus missing Kansas State student. However, if a member of
the university community has reason to believe that any student
is missing and makes a report, efforts will be made to locate the
student to determine his or her state of health and well-being.
Initial concerns about a missing student should be referred
immediately to the K-State Police Department (“campus
police”) at 108 Edwards Hall, 1810 Kerr Drive, Manhattan, KS
66506, 785-532-6412. Efforts to locate the student will be
directed by the campus police in collaboration with the Office
of Student Life, Housing and Dining Services, local authorities,
and friends and family members of the missing student. The
campus police will conduct a formal investigation.
If the student has been missing for more than 24 hours, the
campus police, in collaboration with the Dean of Students or
designee, will notify the confidential contact person identified by
the missing student within 24 hours after such determination that
the student is missing. If a resident student has been missing for
more than 24 hours and that resident student is unemancipated
and under 18 years of age, then that student’s custodial parent or
▪ 22 ▪
legal guardian will also be notified within 24 hours.
Official Notification Procedures
Notification of the missing student procedures to be provided
to resident student:
• All resident students may designate a confidential contact
person to be notified no later than 24 hours after the
student is determined to have been missing for 24 hours.
Students may identify this contact using the Confidential
Contact Form available at their residence’s front desk or
from their building’s Resident Life Coordinator. Completed
forms will be maintained in the RLC’s office. The confidential
contact information provided by the student will be
accessible only to authorized campus personnel, including
law enforcement officials in connection with a missing
person investigation. If the student does not register a
confidential contact person, then the student’s designated
emergency contact person(s) shall be contacted.
• All unemancipated resident students under 18 years
of age, in the event that they are determined to be
missing, will have their custodial parent or legal guardian
notified within 24 hours, in addition to notification of the
confidential contact person designated by the student.
Statement of policy regarding
discrimination, harassment,
sexual violence, and stalking
Kansas State University’s Policy Prohibiting Discrimination,
Harassment, Sexual Violence, and Stalking, and Procedure for
Reviewing Complaints define sexual violence:
In this policy, the term “sexual violence” refers to a physical
act perpetrated against a person’s will, or where a person is so
incapacitated that he or she is incapable of giving consent due
to the use of drugs or alcohol, or where a person is incapable
of giving consent due to an intellectual or other disability.
A number of different acts fall into the category of sexual
violence, including but not limited to rape, sexual assault,
sexual battery, domestic violence, and dating violence. Use
of alcohol or other drugs by a perpetrator or victim does not
excuse acts of sexual violence.
The determination regarding the presence or absence of
consent shall be based upon the totality of circumstances in
a particular case, including the context in which the alleged
incident(s) occurred. If an individual can comprehend the
sexual nature of the proposed act, can understand he or
she has the right to refuse to participate, and possesses
a rudimentary grasp of the possible results arising from
participation in the act, he or she has the capacity to consent. A
person may be incapable of giving consent because of mental
deficiency or disease, or because of the effect of any alcoholic
liquor, narcotic, drug or other substance, which condition
was known by the offender or was reasonably apparent to
the offender. Consent will not necessarily be inferred from
silence or passivity alone. Sexual violence is considered sexual
harassment, and is therefore considered to be discrimination.
This policy covers employees, students, applicants for
employment or admission, contractors, vendors, visitors, guests
and participants in university-sponsored programs or activities.
The academic or work relationship sometimes extends beyond
the university campus and after university work and class
hours. Therefore, in some situations, this policy may apply to
allegations of discrimination, harassment or retaliation for
behavior that occurs off campus or during after-hours functions
sponsored by the university. Off-campus occurrences that are
not related to university-sponsored programs or activities are
investigated under this policy only if those occurrences relate
to discrimination, harassment, or retaliation alleged on campus.
If you wish to report sexual violence for criminal investigation,
contact the K-State Police Department at 785-532-6412 or
local law enforcement. If you wish to report sexual violence
for investigation by the university, contact the Office of
Institutional Equity at 785-532-6220. You can make reports
and request that an investigation not take place at the Center
for Advocacy, Response, and Education at 785-532-6444. In
some circumstances, however, CARE cannot guarantee that no
investigation will be undertaken. CARE will provide its services,
regardless of whether a report is made to law enforcement or
to the university for investigation. K-State will provide written
notification to students and employees regarding health,
mental health, victim advocacy and legal assistance.
The Office of Institutional Equity will evaluate and investigate
complaints. The reporting party and the accused are afforded
an equitable process throughout, and both are informed of the
outcomes of the proceeding. Persons who violate this policy
are subject to sanctions, up to and including violation specific
educational programing, warning, probation, restricted access
to university property, no contact directives, suspension,
expulsion from the university and dismissal from employment
or expulsion from the university. Remedial actions will be
taken to restore any losses suffered as a result of a violation of
this policy. Examples of remedial actions include, but are not
limited to, re-evaluation of a grade, an evaluation completed
by someone other than the respondent, reconsideration of
an application for employment, placement in a position, back
pay and lost benefits, withdrawal of a disciplinary action, or a
change of housing. For more information, contact the Office of
Institutional Equity at 785-532-6220.
Information for crime victims about disciplinary
proceedings
Kansas State University will, in accordance with Section
487 (a)(26) of the Higher Education Opportunity Act, upon
written request, disclose to the alleged victim of any crime of
violence (as that term is defined in Section 16 of title 18, United
States Code), or sex offense, the report on the results of any
disciplinary proceeding conducted by such institution against a
student who is the alleged perpetrator of such crime or offense
with respect to such crime or offense. If the alleged victim of
such crime or offense is deceased as a result of such crime or
offense, the next of kin of such victim shall be treated as the
alleged victim for purposes of this paragraph.
Statements on alcoholic
beverages, illegal drugs, and
controlled substances
The possession, sale or furnishing of alcohol on the university
campus is governed by the K-State Alcoholic Beverage Policy,
found in Chapter 3053 of the university’s Policy and Procedures
Manual, and Kansas state law. The Kansas Alcoholic Beverage
Control (ABC) Division is the state’s regulatory authority for
enforcing Kansas liquor laws through the issue of state licenses
and permits, monitoring product flow, conducting compliance
▪ 23 ▪
reviews of licensed premises and enforcing restrictions on
underage access to alcoholic beverages and a variety of other
statutory violations. A bill passed by the 1987 legislature
permits consumption of alcoholic liquor in nonclassroom space
on property under the control of the Kansas Board of Regents.
The policy adopted by the Board of Regents and enforced at
Kansas State University can be found in Chapter 3053 of the
K-State Policy and Procedures Manual. The enforcement of
alcohols laws and policy on campus is the responsibility of the
K-State Police Department.
Kansas State University has been designated a drugfree workplace, and the possession, sale, manufacture or
distribution of any controlled substance is illegal under both
state and federal laws. These laws are enforced by the K-State
Police Department, and violators are subject to university
disciplinary action and criminal prosecution.
Parental notification of drug and alcohol policy
violations
The U.S. Congress passed an amendment to the Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA or the Buckley
Amendment) on Oct. 1, 1998, removing restrictions to
disclosing information to parents or guardians of students
under the age of 21 about their student’s violation of a
university alcohol or other drug policy.
Kansas State University notifies the parents or guardians
as listed on the student record if that student has a second
violation of a university alcohol policy or a first-time drug
violation. This notification is only for students who are under 21
at the time of the incident and disclosure.
On a student’s first on-campus alcohol or drug policy
violation, the student is subject to a judicial review panel or an
administrative review. Students are often given an educational
sanction to learn more about substance abuse and how to
make healthier decisions. The university looks on a first alcohol
violation as a teachable moment and uses it as such. However,
drug violations or repeated alcohol violations may indicate
that a more serious problem exists, and the university notifies
parents as an important resource for the student.

Sex Offenses
Any sexual act directed against another person, without the
consent of the victim, including instances where the victim is
incapable of giving consent.

intentional human act to ignite or spread fire into an area
where the fire should not be.
Intentional Fire: A fire that is ignited, or that results from
a deliberate action, in circumstances where the person
knows there should not be a fire.
Undetermined Fire: A fire in which the cause cannot be
determined.
