At FIT, the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and visitors is of paramount importance. FIT employs security measures to help ensure that members of the FIT community can learn and work in an environment free from threats to safety or well-being.
Annual Clery Act Security and Fire Safety Report
Each year, pursuant to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), FIT publishes an annual report containing crime statistics, fire statistics, and statements of security policy. This report is required of all post-secondary institutions that participate in federal student aid programs. The report contains statistics about certain offenses that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by FIT, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible to, on-campus property. The report also includes information on safety and security topics including prevention, reporting, fire safety, services for victims, discipline, and other information. Further information on these topics can be found in FIT’s College Policy Library and the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.
Access FIT Statistics
» Visit the U.S. Department of Education’s Campus Safety and Security website, which compiles statistics submitted by all schools under the Clery Act.
» Request a paper copy of the report by contacting the Public Safety administrative office at (212) 217-4999.
FIT’s Department of Public Safety also maintains, pursuant to the Clery Act, a daily log of crimes and incidents that occur on campus, which may be accessed at the Public Safety Office at 236 West 27th Street.
Campus Security Authority Incident Reporting Form
Campus security authorities should use the Campus Security Authority Incident Reporting Form to promptly provide FIT’s Department of Public Safety with notice of Clery Act crimes reported to you in your capacity as a CSA.
Prompt reporting is required to fulfill the College’s legal duties under the Clery Act in determining if there is a serious or continuing threat to the safety of the campus community that would require an alert and to accurately maintain the campus’s daily crime log in a timely manner. The statistics are also published each year as part of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report.
