2020 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report NOW Available

Dear University of the Sciences Community,

The 2020 Annual Security & Fire Safety Report was made available on Friday, November 6, 2020 in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act, a federal consumer protection act. Typically, the report must be published on or before midnight on October 1 each year. Due to the COVID 19 impacts, the United States Department of Education extended this deadline to December 31, 2020.

The report is available via the following link, and on the University main page in the footer, as well as the USciences Department of Public Safety website. One can also receive a printed copy upon request. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact me.


The Department of Public Safety would also like to publicly thank all of the members of the community who assisted in the development, review, and publishing of this year’s report. It is only together as a community that we can grow our programs from year-to-year.

Best regards,

Michael E. Lapotasky, MA Ed.
