CRIME REPORTING POLICY: REPORT CRIMES PROMPTLY
Report all crimes that occur on campus to:
Director Physical Plant: cell 443-802-5684
Vice President for Finance and Administration 410-864-4271
Vice Rector: 410-864-3604 School of Theology
Associate Dean of St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute: 410-864-4204 St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute
St. Mary’s Seminary & University is committed to making the institution a safe place for students, staff, and faculty. A security guard, stationed at or near the front entrance, is on duty Monday through Thursday beginning at 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. The guard is available for concerns about safety, escorts to cars, and other security matters. All students and faculty are required to wear an identification badge during the evening class hours. This badge is issued at the beginning of each term, to gain entrance to the building and while inside the building. The guard is instructed to ask for this identification before granting anyone access to the building.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that St. Mary’s Seminary & University maintain records of criminal offenses occurring on campus, and publish and distribute this information to seminarians and employees. Seminarians are to report to the Vice Rector and students of St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute are to report to the Associate Dean all known or suspected crimes that occur on campus. In a written report, include the following information: the name of the person reporting the
crime; the nature of the crime; the time and place of its occurrence; and the victim(s) (if any) of the crime. Also indicate if administrators or police were contacted at the time the crime was reported.
If a resident is in his room when the alarm rings, he should leave immediately and close, but not lock, the door behind him. Residents and all persons should take all fire alarms seriously. Fire drills should be treated as if they are real emergencies. Normally, in case of an alarm, the building is evacuated by the front doors, near the Periodical Room of the Library, the Information Office and the Main Dining Room. If these entrances are blocked by flame or smoke, residents and all persons should take the nearest open exit but proceed to the front of the building so that all can be accounted for. In the event of a fire, the center of communications will be the middle of the front parking lot. A log of fire drills is kept on file in the Information Office under the direction of the Director of Physical Plant.
To promote the general health and well-being of the entire house as well as to promote house-wide fire safety, St Mary’s Seminary and University is a non-smoking facility. Smoking is, therefore, prohibited in all public and private areas inside the seminary building, including student dormitory rooms. Smoking, however, is permitted at specific designated areas on campus. These three areas are to be found behind the seminary in the two inner courtyards as well as the patio outside the Donnelly Lounge. There are cigarette bins provided in each designated smoking area. It is expected that each smoker dispose of his cigars, cigarettes, pipe tobacco, and other tobacco products appropriately in these specified containers.
St. Mary’s Seminary & University mandates criminal background checks for all students, faculty, and staff. St. Mary’s requests Social 安全 Verification, Residency History, Maryland Statewide Criminal Search, and Nationwide Sex Offender reports for each student. Additional information as to the nature and scope of the criminal background reports, as well as a summary of a student’s rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, is provided to students who request this information in writing. Any student who has had such a background check in the last three (3) years may submit a copy to be used as a waiver for the required background check.
Questions about this policy should be addressed to the Vice Rector at 410-864-3604 or firstname.lastname@example.org for the School of Theology and to the Associate Dean of St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute at 410-864-4200 or email@example.com.
