Campus Security Policies, Crime Statistics, and Crime Log
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act requires Gratz College to provide students and employees with information on its security policies and procedures and specific statistics for certain criminal incidents, arrests, and disciplinary referrals and to make the information and statistics available to prospective students and employees upon request. This information is available in the Annual Security Report or by calling the Office of Campus Security: Suzette Martinez-Quiles, Director of Campus Security, 215-635-7310 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All colleges are mandated by law (the Clery Act) to report the number of sexual assaults and rapes, as well as other crimes, experienced on their campuses each year in order to track the instances of these crimes, so that colleges may effectively work on prevention and response. For this reason, it is important to report that an incident has occurred. Reporting a rape or sexual assault is confidential – no names of survivors are required.

All faculty, staff, and students are strongly urged to report any crimes of which they have knowledge in order to provide accurate statistics and to make sure the campus is safe. The name of a survivor of a sexual assault does not have to be disclosed. If you have questions on whether you in your role on campus are required to report a sexual assault, call the Title IX Coordinator, Ruth Sandberg, Ph.D. at 215 635-7300 x 168 or the Title IX Deputy Coordinator, Tom Cipriano Jr. at 215-635-7300 x195.
In the event of an emergency, prompt notification to the Cheltenham Police by dialing 911 and one of the designated Campus Security Authority (CSA).
