Creating a secure campus environment is of prime importance to everyone at HIU. Students who feel secure are better able to focus full attention to their studies and faith formation. Our goal is to offer this kind of safe environment for our students.
Hope believes campus security should involve more than responsiveness in emergency situations. It means also maintaining an environment that discourages crime by operating 24-hour foot patrol of campus, enforcing parking regulations, offering escort services between locations after dark and regulating access to university property.
For these reasons, the University provides trained, professional security officers for our campus community. The HIU Campus Safety Department answers calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week: (714) 253-2643.
Per the Jeanne Clery Act, HIU publishes the number of alleged crimes reported to campus authorities during the past three years. These statistics include all reported activity as defined and required by 20 U.S.C. 1092(f), such as crimes that occurred on campus, in certain non-campus buildings or on property owned or controlled by HIU, and on public property immediately adjacent to and accessible from campus. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report also includes other information related to security, including an explanation of the Clery Act, a definition of the enforcement authority of security personnel, details about crime prevention on campus, and more.
