Introduction
Kansas State University Olathe is committed to providing a safe
and inclusive environment for all. To help members of the K-State
community make informed decisions regarding their safety, the
university’s Annual Security Report is published annually for
each campus. K-State Olathe academic classes began in the fall
2012 semester, so this is only the second Campus Security Report
published for this campus. Future annual security reports will
contain information for the three previous years, as required.
While K-State Olathe has not experienced any 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 K-State Olathe Security Department, Room 102, in
cooperation with local law enforcement and K-State Olathe’s
Facilities Department, Student Services Department and
Human Resources Department, 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 Security
Department on the K-State Olathe campus, Room 102. The
full text of this report is available at http://olathe.k-state.edu/
about/safety/index.html.
Copies of the report can also be obtained at the K-State
Olathe Security Department. All prospective employees and
students may also access the report by the methods previously
mentioned. For questions regarding this report or to obtain
a printed copy, contact the Facilities Department at 913-3077309.

Alcohol
Suicide
Alcohol poisoning
Suicide-risk factors, signs and prevention
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
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.
On-campus help
Kansas State University’s Alcohol and Other Drug Education
Services, a resource offered by University Counseling Services,
is for K-State students, faculty and staff and offers the following:
• Educational presentations on alcohol and other drug issues.
• Responsible party hosting information, consultation, and
promotion.
• Professional referral resources (campus and community).
• General education information (posters, handouts, fliers, etc.)
• Consultation on special activities.
• Sponsorship of Project ABC.
• Free video checkout (i.e. drunk driving, alcoholism, and
many other titles).
• Local DUI regulations.
• Non-alcoholic beverage recipes.
• Basic assessment and intervention assistance.
• DUI diversion counseling.
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 Kansas State University
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.
•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
▪5▪
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:
• Will you go with me to see a counselor?
• Will you let me help you make an appointment with a
counselor/doctor/etc.?
• Will you promise me you will not hurt yourself until we can
get help?
If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of
suicide, consult with a mental health professional.
Crime prevention and safety and
security
Safety is a shared responsibility
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.
• Report any suspicious activity or person to the police
immediately.
• Walk and jog with a friend.
• 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.
In an effort to promote safety and security awareness, Kansas
State University offers a wide range of programs to educate
and inform students, employees, parents and the community
at-large on a variety of issues. Programs are offered throughout
the academic year and summer, and specific program
frequency may vary.

Reporting of Criminal Offenses
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 K-State Olathe Security
Department of the Facilities Department
immediately. The Security Department is
located in the main lobby, and officers are
always available by phone when they are
on patrol. A K-State Olathe security officer
will immediately report to the scene of a
reported or suspected crime. If you suspect
a crime has been or is being committed, you
should immediately call one of the emergency
numbers listed in the table to the right:

Reporting to K-State Olathe Security
Department
Every call is checked by a campus security officer. Reported
criminal acts or emergencies on campus result in a security
officer being immediately dispatched to the location of
occurrence. The Security Department will investigate the
incident, document the information and take appropriate
action. This action may involve working with the Olathe Police
Department or Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, Johnson
County district attorney and other state and federal agencies,
as necessary. Cases are adjudicated through either the city
or county and/or through K-State’s disciplinary system. The
K-State Olathe Security Department will also call in other
emergency services, such as fire or ambulance, and aid in
contacting other appropriate university offices that may need
to respond. Other means to report crimes include in-person
reports to the Security Department or Facilities Department
phone reports, LiveSafe app, and the KSU anonymous silent
witness reporting.
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.
• Refer people to appropriate university and community
resources, such as K-State’s CARE — the Center for
Advocacy, Response and Education.
Procedures to follow if a crime of
sexual assault, domestic violence,
dating violence or stalking has
occurred
Numerous options are available for support and reporting on
campus and within the Olathe/Greater Kansas City 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
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 of which
the victim is unaware. 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 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.
• Consider talking to a counselor — Seeing a counselor or
therapist may be important in helping victims understand
their feelings and begin the process of recovery.
▪9▪
• 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
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
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
• Consider talking to Office of Institutional Equity — An

or stalking may
violate the university’s

victims of domestic abuse and sexual assualt, including:
Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault
(MOCSA): Services are available for victims of rape and sexual
assault, for sexually abused children and families experiencing
sexual violence. For help, call MOCSA’s 24-hour crisis line. it
offers therapy, support and advocacy for adult survivors of
child sexual abuse and others affected by sexual violence.
and you: Don’t tolerate disrespect or pressure in your
community.
• Look out for people around you: Bystander intervention is
crucial when you see a troubling situation or concern for
others.
• Be alert to patterns, not just isolated actions: Sometimes
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
▪ 11 ▪
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.

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
Police public address systems
Tornado warning sirens
Postings to the K-State website
K-State Alerts
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, Salina and Olathe

Faculty/Staff Student of Concern Guide
The Faculty/Staff Student of Concern Guide consolidates
emergency and support information for use when working
with students of concern.
The guide’s purpose is to help you recognize some of the
signs of students in distress, be supportive of their needs and
facilitate referrals to the appropriate resources on campus. It
also helps increase your awareness of the Office of Student Life.
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 security
The K-State Olathe Security Department helps preserve a
safe campus environment where diverse social, cultural and
academic values are allowed to develop and prosper. During
normal business hours, the Olathe campus is generally open to
employees, students, visitors, contractors, guest and invitees.
Outside normal operation hours, access cards are required to
enter the building.
The campus currently consists of one building. K-State Olathe
does not operate any residence halls. The Security Department
has two full-time security officers who patrol the campus
from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday. Officers also
are on duty on weekends when the campus is open for
scheduled events. While on duty, officers can be reached via
cellphone at 913-481-0575 or at the office number 913-3077318. In addition, officers from the Olathe Police Department
periodically drive through the campus as part of their routine
patrols.
The K-State Olathe building is equipped with 38 security
cameras, an access control card-key system, and emergency
code blue phones in the front and back parking lots.
Custodial support for the building is scheduled while security
officers are present. The Facilities Department oversees
contract services for landscaping to assure trees, shrubs
and other vegetation are trimmed back and do not obstruct
exterior lighting or hydrants. The Facilities Department also
contracts services to perform required inspections and
maintenance of backflow, hydrant, emergency exit lights,
extinguishers, fire alarm, kitchen hoods, and suppression gas
and wet sprinkler systems. In addition, there are contracted
services for the maintenance and software upgrades for the
surveillance cameras and access control systems.
K-State Olathe Security Department authority
and jurisdiction
The K-State Olathe Security Department communicates
and coordinates with the K-State Police Department on
the Manhattan campus and also maintains a close working
relationship with the Olathe Police Department to maximize
the services provided to the K-State Olathe community.
Working relationship with local law
enforcement agencies
The contracted security personnel on the K-State Olathe
campus have no authority to make arrests. They will attempt
to apprehend or detain a suspect until the Olathe Police
Department arrives to manage the situation or incident.
However, if the suspect will not cooperate while being
detained, the security personnel cannot force apprehension.
The security personnel will assist the Olathe Police Department
in containing the situation/emergency as necessary and in
providing information as required for an investigation.
Responding to emergency calls
Emergency calls received by security officers are promptly
referred to Olathe Police, EMS or Fire departments as
necessary. Security officers will also notify the appropriate
campus administrator and provide a written incident report
on all emergency situations. Criminal investigations, vehicle
accidents, and/or moving violations are referred to the Olathe
Police Department.
The Olathe Police and Fire departments respond to all police
and fire calls on the campus. The Olathe Police Department
will provide information to K-State Olathe about crimes
occurring adjacent to the campus. The K-State Olathe Security
Department attempts to monitor off-campus incidents through
police scanners and local media, and will alert the campus
community of incidents that may be of concern to the safety
and welfare of the community members.
Confidential reporting
Pastoral and professional counselors on college campuses
may not be required by law to report crimes for inclusion in
the Annual Safety Report. K-State Olathe does not employ any
pastoral counselors or professional counselors at this time.
Victims of crime will be encouraged to seek help or counseling
through referrals to local resource organizations or through a
K-State Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE,
coordinator.
Emergency Notification
Methods
In the event of an incident that may endanger the life or
adversely affect the K-State Olathe campus, the situation
should be reported immediately to the Security Dept. 913-3077318 or 7-7318 if on-campus, the Facilities Dept. 913-307-7309
or 7-7309 if on campus, the City of Olathe Police Dept. 911 or
9-911 if on campus. In addition to the above mentioned means
of communication, the K- State Olathe Communications and
Marketing Dept. will also seek to notify Johnson County Kansas
authorities 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 cell phones unless it is to report on the
status of the incident to assure their personal safety or the
safety of others. Mass use of cell phone systems typically results
in system overloads and the general failure of the system until
traffic diminishes.
Once there has been a confirmation that a significant
emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate
threat to the health or safety of faculty, staff and students
is occurring, emergency notification will be sent using any
combination of the following methods.

▪ 14 ▪
Policies for timely warnings
The K-State Olathe Security Department, in consultation with
the Facilities Department, responsible campus authorities and
the Olathe Police Department, will issue timely warnings to
give students, faculty and staff timely notification of crimes
that have been determined to be serious or a continuing threat
to the campus community in order 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 convictions 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.
Timely warnings can be announced through written crime
alerts and/or through the automated calling or the campus
Emergency Notification System. Crime alerts are produced by
the Security Department in coordination with the Facilities
Department. The warning will be posted to the K-State Olathe
home page. The information may also be distributed to all
students and employees through the K-State Alerts system.

Levels of emergency notification
The process for activating K-State Alerts immediately begins
when a threat or emergency situation is reported to the K-State
Olathe Security Department, Facilities Department or to
another responsible university authority.
There are four levels of notifications under K-State Alerts:
Immediate, Urgent, Informative and Status Update/All-Clear.
Immediate Notification
An Immediate Notification to the campus community is
made when the K-State Olathe Security Department, Facilities
Department or another responsible campus authority has
confirmed that an emergency situation poses an immediate
threat to life safety or security of the campus population
(see Figure 1 below). The Security Department, Facilities
Department, campus CEO or K-State Olathe executivelevel administrators are authorized to make an immediate
notification to provide alert, warning, and safety or protection
instructions. However, the above listed 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 K-State Olathe’s efforts to contain the
emergency.
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

Emergency notification system authorizations
This section describes the authorization for issuing K-State
Alerts notifications.
Emergency notification procedures
The K-State Olathe Emergency Notification System consists
of multiple methods to inform the campus community. The
appropriate mode(s) of distribution will be determined by the
incident time line and populations affected. The Emergency
Notification System will issue alerts to advise the campus
community unless notification would otherwise compromise
the effort to assist victims or contain the emergency.
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,
police public address system, and postings to the K-State Olathe
website to notify faculty, staff and students of an emergency.
In addition, K-State Olathe will seek to notify its Johnson
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 safety of others. Mass use
of cellphone systems typically
results in system overloads and the
general failure of the system until
traffic diminishes.
Emergency drills, testing and
evacuation procedures
The K-State Olathe Security
Department and the Facilities
Department will coordinate the
response of emergency responders
and the evacuation of the campus
in the event of an emergency.
These officials will also test the
emergency response evacuation
procedures throughout the campus
community. Biannual testing
may be either unannounced or
announced and will be publicized
in a campus listserv email and on
the K-State Olathe website http://
olathe.k-state.edu/about/safety/
index.html. Documentation of the
testing, to include a description
of the exercise, the date, time,
and whether it was announced or
unannounced, will be maintained
and retained in the Facilities
Department.
Fire safety
The K-State Olathe building has a
fire alarm system, flashing strobes
and automated public address
system announcement to signal
when a building evacuation is
necessary.

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 afterhours 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 Olathe Security Dept. at
913-307-7318, Facilities Dept. at 913-307-7309 or the City of
Olathe Polic Dept. IN addition, you may contact the K-State
Police Department at 785-532-6412. 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
▪ 18 ▪
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 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.
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.
Crime statistics
This report provides statistics for the previous two years.
The data covers a 12-month period, Jan. 1-Dec. 31 for each
year listed. The K-State Olathe Facilities Department, Student
Services Dept. and Human Resource Office prepares this report
in cooperation the campus Security Department and local law
enforcement agencies and campus security authorities (CSAs).
Information about crimes is collected by the K-State Olathe
Security Department and also the Olathe Police Department,
including from any campus and community members and from
anyone who may elect to file a confidential and anonymous
crime or suspicious activity. The Security Department prepares
a log of reported crimes that details, date, time location and
disposition of reported incidents occurring on the Olathe
campus. Data on reported criminal offenses and arrests on the
campus are provided in accordance with the Campus Security
Act; additional information regarding crime rates in the
greater community may be obtained from the Olathe Police
Department.
This daily crime log is available on the K-State Olathe website
at http:/olathe.k-state.edu/about/safety/index.html; to request
