Rights of Privacy Act of 1974

The Federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 affords persons who are currently, or who were formerly, in attendance at the university as registered students a right of access to their “educational records,” which contain information directly related to such persons and the right to challenge the accuracy of their records. The act also restricts the persons to whom the university may disclose a student’s educational records without the student’s written permission. The university’s policy is to comply fully with all provisions of the act, and a detailed statement concerning the rights afforded current and former students is available, at no cost, in the office of UNLV’s General Counsel. Any person who feels the university has failed to comply with the Federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act may file a complaint with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act Office, Department of Education, 300 Independence Avenue S.W., Washington D.C. 20201.

Annual Jeanne Clery Campus Safety and Security Report

In order to comply with provisions of “The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act”, reports from the University community and local law enforcement agencies are compiled and published annually by the Department of Public Safety. As law enforcement professionals tasked with the maintenance of a safe and secure educational environment, it is our responsibility to provide a comprehensive report regarding the campus public safety environment including the incidence of crime.
