Perpetrators are responsible for criminal behavior. You can take specific actions to reduce your vulnerability:
  • If you feel you are being followed, cross the street, yell, run and look for a well-lit area or occupied building.
  • Tell someone you trust your destination and planned time of return.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe, get to a safe place and call for help.
  • Use the buddy system and watch out for each other.

It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the University community. It is the duty of the administration to warn of possible "dangerous conditions" on or near the campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus; an "affirmative duty" exists to warn persons associated with the University of possible peril at the hands of some third party or parties.
