Safety and Security Policies

Colby Community College policies and procedures exist for the purpose of providing a basis for quality campus life and for setting a standard of conduct for all members of the college community. These policies and procedures are printed in the Campus Security Booklet and in the Student Handbook. For your safety and the safety of others, please read and become familiar with the content of these publications. Safety and security is a shared responsibility. Colby College recognizes the importance of providing a safe and secure learning environment in which the academic and social pursuits of its members can be fully realized. The college has the utmost concern for the success of each student and strives to give each student maximum freedom to live her/his life free from outside interference. With this freedom, however, comes the responsibility of becoming an active participant in the exercise of personal safety. No security plan can attain maximum effectiveness unless everyone does their part to make it work. Safety and security are both an individual and a shared responsibility. Together, we can continue to make Colby Community College a safe and fun place to attend college.

Campus Statistics

The crime statistics were compiled by the CCC Vice President of Student Affairs in cooperation with the Colby Police Department and campus officials who have responsibility for oversight of student activities and relevant local and state security agencies. Crime definitions are from the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Handbook and sex offense definitions are from the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) edition of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported.

All of the statistics are gathered, compiled, and reported to the college community via the Clery Act Annual Security Report

The Vice President of Student Affairs submits the annual crime statistics published in the report to the United States Department of Education (ED). The statistical information gathered by the  Department of Education is available to the public through the ED website.
