The Clery Report
University public safety is provided by the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the Office of Parking and Safety. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information on security policies, crime statistics, and provide timely information about crime on and around campus. The CSU Pueblo Fire Safety and Security Report can be found at https://www.csupueblo.edu/campus-safety/index.html.
The Report is compiled by the Campus Safety Team which is comprised of the following: Parking and Safety Manager (Clery Coordinator), members of the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, Sr. Associate Vice-President for Student Affairs & Dean of Students, Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards, Director of Environmental Systems, Members of the Office of Institutional Equity, Executive Director of Marketing Communications and Community Relations, Assistant Dean of Student Life, Deputy General Counsel.
Public Health Emergency Notification
In response to a public health emergency, the university may take any action in order to comply with any law, executive order, public health emergency order, and/or public health guidelines or recommendations, including without limitation temporarily closing or limiting access to campus and campus facilities, such as classrooms, offices, and on-campus housing, as well as temporarily closing or modifying university operations and modifying the method of academic instruction from in-person to remote or online instruction, or such other academic modifications as may be reasonable, practicable and necessary in response to a public health emergency.
In order to help protect the health and safety of the campus community and minimize disruption to the normal conduct and operations of the university, all students are required to comply with all university policies, procedures, protocols, directives and guidelines, including those relating to public health emergencies (“Public Health Emergency Rules”). The Public Health Emergency Rules may be updated, supplemented, or modified by the university at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to, complying with revised executive orders, public health orders or public health guidelines. Although the university takes reasonable steps to minimize risks to public health, the university cannot and does not guarantee protection from illness or complications that may result from illness. Students are responsible for educating themselves regarding all potential risks associated with a contagious disease and/or any other public health emergency and are required to take all necessary and reasonable steps to protect their health against contagious diseases and/or public health emergencies. Students voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to contagious diseases and/or public health emergencies.
Tuition and fees for any academic year are approved by the Board of Governors of the Colorado State University System and are posted by the university. Students are advised that, in response to a public health emergency or potential public health emergency, some or all instruction for all or part of any particular academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely, in whole or in part, for any part of the academic year.
In the case of extreme weather conditions, energy resource reductions, or situations impacting normal operating conditions, it may be necessary to curtail or shut down university operations. Decisions regarding campus closures will be made as early as possible. Closure decisions impacting on-campus and off-campus evening classes (i.e., CSU Pueblo at Colorado Springs Tower locations and Ft. Carson) will be made by 5:30 a.m. when possible. Even if conditions improve, a closure decision remains in effect for the time period specified. Announcements of class cancellations beyond an overall campus closure are the responsibility of individual instructors.
The Executive Director of Marketing, Communications and Community Relations is responsible for notifying local and regional radio and television stations of campus closures through the Flashnet Media Service. Students and staff may access closure messages for the University and other area entities by logging on to http://www.flashnews.net/rocky.html and clicking on View Current Info or signing up to receive text message notification.
To update or opt-out of Emergency Text Messages, please visit your PAWS or Employee Portal and follow the instructions. Faculty and staff should update their information with Human Resources as it changes.
The following scenarios are pre-approved by University officials for immediate text notification:
- Campus-wide Delays and Cancellations
- Dangerous Situation
- Hazardous Materials Warning
- Severe Thunderstorm Warning
- Tornado Warning
- Blizzard Warning
If classes are cancelled, a message also will be posted on the University’s home page at: http://www.csupueblo.edu. Class cancellations or delay notification also will include the Pueblo Transportation Company and any appropriate non-law enforcement organizations.
