Safety and security are the concerns of the entire campus community: students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Fayette and the surrounding communities is a comparatively safe environment, the campus is not exempt from the types of crime that exist in larger populations. Effective safety and security require cooperation and assistance from everyone at the college. All members of the college community must take responsibility for the safety and security of themselves, their neighbors, and their belongings. Being alert to and observant of suspicious activity or possible campus crime and calling Campus Security immediately are important personal responsibilities shared by all members of the community.
Upper Iowa assumes no responsibility for the theft, damages, or loss of money, valuables, or personal property. We strongly recommend that students check with their family concerning the extent of coverage under their homeowner/renter policy and purchase property insurance, if needed.
Upper Iowa is a private institution. Campus Security works with the college's physical plant staff and building managers of each campus facility to establish and implement daily lock-up times for each building. Safety and security issues within campus facilities should be reported to the building custodian or to Campus Security as soon as possible.
