15.- Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act
In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act (the Act) 20 U.S.C. Sections 1092(a), (e) and (f), as amended, The University of Texas at El Paso collects specified information on campus crime statistics, campus security policies, and institutional completion or graduation rates.
Pursuant to the federal law, alleged victims of violent crime are entitled to know the results of campus student disciplinary proceedings concerning the alleged perpetrators.
UTEP will make timely reports to the campus community on crimes considered to be a threat to students and employees and reported to campus police or local police agencies.
Every September, UTEP will publish and distribute an annual report of campus security policies and crime statistics to all current students and employees; provide copies of the report to applicants for enrollment or employment upon request; and submit a copy of the report to the Secretary of Education upon request.
The annual campus crime statistics report will reference crimes which occur on property owned or controlled by UTEP and may be supplemented by listing crimes which occur off of the campus in buildings or on property owned or controlled by student organizations that are registered by the institution when such statistics are available from local police departments.
UTEP will publish in the annual security report its policy regarding sex-related offenses, including sexual assault prevention programs, education programs to promote awareness of sex offenses, administrative disciplinary procedures and sanctions for offenders, and counseling and student services for victims.
UTEP will annually calculate and disclose institutional completion or graduation rates for undergraduate students to all prospective and current students. (The federal requirement for calculation of a completion or graduation rate applies only to institutions of higher education that admit undergraduate students who are enrolling for the first time at an institution of higher education and have not enrolled previously at any other institution of higher education.)
Prior to the offer of athletically-related student aid to a potential student athlete, UTEP will provide certain information on graduation rates specified by the Act to the prospective student and to the student's parents, guidance counselor and coach.
