About Campus Alerts and Advisories

Because Vassar has long recognized the importance of keeping its community members, and others well informed about public safety issues, Vassar College Safety and Security provides timely notification of potential and actual occurrences of criminal activity to the Vassar community in conjunction with other law-enforcement agencies and other College departments.

Campus Crime Alerts are intended to provide timely warning of crimes that pose an ongoing threat to faculty, staff, and students. These Crime Alerts contain a brief description of the incident; the date, time, and location of the incident; and precautions to take.

Campus Advisories are also issued in those instances where the community should be aware of the potential for criminal activity. Both advisories and alerts are posted in each Residence Hall, the Campus Safety and Security Information Board in the College Center and are sent via e-mail to all members of the community.
