Campus Security and Crime Prevention Information

For incidents reported in 2015 at the Chicago Campus:

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), Adler is required to provide a report of all crimes occurring on campus as well as crime statistics reported to local law enforcement for the immediate area surrounding the campus. The Chicago Campus does not have non-campus property.

This report includes statistics from the previous three years (2013, 2014, and 2015). There were zero incidents reported on campus for the 2015 calendar year.

While the university attempts to provide a safe and secure environment, safety is enhanced when students and employees take precautions such as:

  • Never leave valuables (wallets, purses, books, computers, etc.) unattended.
  • Avoid walking alone at night.  Travel with a friend or companion.
  • Avoid parking or walking in secluded or dimly lit areas.

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to report all crimes or suspicious persons immediately. Please report all non-emergency incidents to the Adler Security Guard at x4455 or Facilities Director at x4411.  In case of an emergency, the Chicago Police Department and Chicago Fire Department can be reached by dialing 911 from any phone.

Adler University is committed to providing and maintaining a healthy learning and working environment for all students, staff, and faculty members. In accordance with the university’s values and its role as an educational institution, the university condemns any form of sexual violence.

A sexual offense is defined as any unwanted physical contact of a sexual nature, whether by an acquaintance or by a stranger, that occurs without indication of consent of both individuals, or that occurs under threat or coercion. Sexual offenses, as well as threats of sexual offenses and intimidation through threats of sexual offenses, are prohibited by the University.
