This paper offers guidelines to colleges and universities which must comply with requirements of the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, specifically Title II, Crime Awareness and Campus Security. An introduction outlines some measures that campuses are urged to adopt such as campus-wide committees to review security policies, emergency response teams, and safety and security education and awareness programs. Following this, a section headed "Making the Law Work for You" details the compliance requirements and timetable. A section titled "Definitions" quotes from the statute and explains definitions of specific terms in the act such as "campus", "student", and "employee," and also defines crimes covered by the act. The final section offers answers to 13 frequently asked questions such as: "When should the timely reports on crimes considered a threat to other students and employees be disseminated? ""What information is to be included in the annual security report?""How can campus security personnel collect data on crimes committed outside their jurisdiction?" and "What are the implications for institutions with campuses abroad?" Fourteen further resources are listed. (JB)
