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.

This policy allows students to make healthy decisions by seeking medical help without the fear of punishment. On-campus help Kansas State University’s Alcohol and Other Drug Education 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. Phone KSUPD 911 or administrative phone number 785-532-6412 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 Phone Location Website Confidential The Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education (CARE) 785-532-6444 206 Holton Hall k-state.edu/care Title IX Office of Institutional Equity 785-532-6220 103 Edwards Hall k-state.edu/oie Law Enforcement K-State Police Riley County Police 785-532-6400 785-537-2112 108 Edwards Hall 1001 S.

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. • Consider talking to a counselor — Seeing a counselor or therapist may be important in helping victims understand ▪8▪ their feelings and begin the process of recovery. 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: Academic Housing Employment • Look out for people around you: Bystander intervention is crucial when you see a troubling situation or concern for others. Financial Aid Safety •Discrete • Change in •Change •Emergency professor campus in work funds or loans notification and housing schedule •Potential accommodation •Change • Change in job refund of (e.g., receiving assignment tuition and in dining extensions, location fees as a result •Voluntary rescheduling of alternate •Assistance leave of exams, etc.) course in finding absence • Alternative completion alternative course housing completion options (e.g., course load reduction or withdrawal) • Voluntary leave of absence • Academic support, such as tutoring * Other reasonable changes may be tailored to the involved individuals in respect to each unique circumstance. 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.

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 ▪9▪ provide information about Title IX rights and university training, prevention and/or programing efforts at these events. Eligible K-Staters can add contact information of parents, children and spouses when they sign up.

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 criminal investigation reports and as such are not required 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 Monitoring and recording of criminal activity The Riley County Police Department investigates offenses that occur off campus in Manhattan. Off-campus offenses are reported daily in the Manhattan newspaper.

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 ▪ 12 ▪ ID for a students to gain entry into their specific hall at all times.

Figure 3: Informative Notification Authorization Process Nonemergency event occurs and is affecting the campus community. 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. ▪ 16 ▪ KSUPD command determines that a notification will not compromise response efforts. The president’s cabinet or responsible » university authority » confirms there is a need to inform the campus population. The president’s cabinet, DCM or KSUPD command staff may authorize 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 Urgent KSUPD command staff, KSUPD dispatcher (for weather alerts), or designated senior university administrators KSUPD command staff, or designated seniors university administrators KSUPD command staff, DCM or Informative designated senior university administrators Status Update/All Clear Issued by: Channels activated: KSUPD dispatch K-State Alerts • Text message • Voice message • K-State email • Alertus beacons • Police public address systems • CCTV override • Digital signage override • Campus carillon in Anderson Hall tower • Tornado warning sirens • K-State website • Social media •Facebook •Twitter KSUPD dispatch or DCM K-State Alerts • Text message • Voice message • K-State email • Alertus beacons • K-State website • Police public address systems • Social media •Facebook •Twitter KSUPD dispatch or DCM K-State Alerts • Text message • K-State email • K-State Website • Social Media •Facebook •Twitter The person who is incident command, KSUPD KSUPD command staff, or dispatch KSUPD dispatcher (tornado warning) K-State Alerts • Text message • K-State email • Social media •Facebook •Twitter ▪ 17 ▪ The KSUPD command staff, Division of Communications and Marketing (DCM) or the president’s cabinet may authorize a K-State Alerts notification that informs the campus community of the occurrence. Examples, but not limited to, situations that could active and Informative Notification: Personal injuries, medical problems, thefts, minor protests, fire alarms, building power failures, broken pipes, minor chemical spills, gas pipeline leaks, technology outages, etc. 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 Estimated Cost of Damage in U.S. Dollars Location Description Derby Dining Center Alarm activated by overheating of oven $0 08/29/14 10:45 p.m. Jardine Bldg.

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.
