List Policy Revisions
The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed new policy for Crime Awareness and Campus Security (Clery Act).
The Clery Act (otherwise officially known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, section 485 of the Higher Education Act, codified at 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f)) is a federal law requiring colleges and universities across the United States that receive Title IV funding to disclose information about particular crimes on and around their campuses and related policies. It is the policy of the University to comply with its obligations under the Clery Act and California law.
In accordance with statutory requirements, the University strives to ensure students, faculty and other academic appointees, and staff employees (the “University Community”), have access to accurate information about crimes committed on and around the Campus; as well as, access to University wide security policies and related local campus procedures and a confidential reporting process for victims and witnesses. This Policy describes roles and responsibilities for the University Community related to compliance with legal requirements regarding crime reporting, awareness, and prevention.
If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than November 10, 2017. Please indicate “Clery Act Policy” in the subject line.
Video Security & Safety Systems
The proposed Policy on Video Security I Safety Systems is available for Employee Comment.
The policy was developed by a workgroup led by Systemwide Deputy Compliance Officer David Lane and comprised of a broad range of campus and UCOP partners including representatives from security, law enforcement, legal, compliance, privacy, academic personnel, student affairs, and human resources. The workgroup met over several months, developed several drafts, and received input from a variety of other campus groups such as campus policy managers. This final draft has been reviewed by the Office of the General Counsel.

Employee Comment: Electronic Information Security (IS-3)
The policy provides a security framework that protects UC’s Institutional Information and IT Resources from accidental or intentional unauthorized access, loss or damage, while preserving UC’s collaborative academic culture. The policy is critically important for maintaining faculty research funding from certain federal sources that deal with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). The Department of Education has also urged compliance with new, higher standards for processing federally funded student aid. You may refer to the policy summary below and the attached 2-page policy abstract for additional background and information.
