Campus Security and Crime Prevention Information for 2014
Chicago Campus

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act and the Campus Security Statistics Act, the Adler School of Professional Psychology is required to provide a report of all crimes occurring on campus as well as crime statistics reported to local law enforcement for the immediate area surrounding the campus.

This report includes statistics from the previous three years (2011, 2012, and 2013). There were zero incidents reported on campus for the 2013 calendar year.

While the school attempts to provide a safe and secure environment, safety is enhanced when students and employees take precautions such as:

  • Never leave valuables (wallets, purses, books, computers, etc.) unattended.
  • Avoid walking alone at night. Travel with a friend or companion.
  • Avoid parking or walking in secluded or dimly lit areas.

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to report all crimes or suspicious persons immediately. Please report all non-emergency incidents to the Adler Security Guard at ext. 4455 or Facilities Director at ext. 4411. In case of an emergency, the Chicago Police Department and Chicago Fire Department can be reached by dialing 911 from any phone.

Emergency Response System

The emergency mass-notification system is utilized in case of an emergency or school closing due to inclement weather. In the event of an emergency or school closing, the Adler community is contacted via their cellular phone number and Adler e-mail address.

We encourage Adler students, faculty and staff to keep their contact information up to date by contacting one of the following offices:

  • Students – Please view your contact information on WebAdvisor and email the Office of the Registrar, from your Adler e-mail account, with any changes at registrar@adler.edu.

Alcohol and Illegal Substances

The Adler School campuses are smoke-free. In addition, smoking is not permitted within fifteen feet of any entrances. If a local law ordinance provides greater protection for the rights of non-smokers, it shall apply.

The Adler School explicitly prohibits the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs by students or employees on school premises or as part of any of its activities.

Alcohol beverages may be served to and consumed by persons of legal drinking age on school premises or practicum and internship sites in conjunction with a specifically authorized function. Individuals consuming alcohol and other legal drugs should do so in a responsible manner. Members of Recognized Student Organizations should see the RSO Handbook for further restrictions.

Sexual Offense

The Adler School of Professional Psychology is committed to providing and maintaining a healthy learning and working environment for all students, staff, and faculty members. In accordance with the School’s values and its role as an educational institution, the school condemns any form of sexual violence. In accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act, the Adler School of Professional Psychology reports certain sexual offenses occurring on or near campus to the appropriate authority. The survivor has the choice of whether or not to file a report and/or to proceed with legal action.

A sexual offense is defined as any unwanted physical contact of a sexual nature, whether by an acquaintance or by a stranger, that occurs without indication of consent of both individuals, or that occurs under threat or coercion. Sexual offenses, as well as threats of sexual offenses and intimidation through threats of sexual offenses, are prohibited by the School.
