It is expected that students will adhere to good safety practices. Flagrant or continued violations will lead to suspension or other disciplinary action.

College of Eastern Idaho Crime Statistics

In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and the Campus Security Act, as amended, CEI collects specified information on campus criminal statistics, campus security policies, and institutional program completion or graduation rates. CEI will report crimes considered to be a threat to students and employees. Every October, CEI will make available an annual report of campus and security policies and crime statistics. The completed report will be available on the CEI website.

Title IX

Please see Policies 601 and 602 at www.cei.edu/hr/policies-procedures.

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Title IX requires colleges to promptly respond to allegations of sex discrimination, including sexual violence and sexual harassment, limit its effects, and prevent its recurrence. Title IX prohibits all forms of sex and gender-based discrimination including sexual harassment and sexual violence.

Report any student-related Title IX or discrimination concerns to the Dean of Student Affairs. For employees, Title IX is administered by Human Resources.

Students, staff, faculty, or community members wishing to make a report (anonymous or not) may do so securely (and anonymously if they wish) at: https://cm.maxient.com/reporting.php?CollegeofEasternID. This is also available at the bottom of every landing page at www.cei.edu under “Report a Concern.” People may also report others concerns at this link.

Campus Security

CEI strives to maintain a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Campus security officers are available to provide assistance as needed.

CEI has an emergency notification system to provide the CEI community with important information in the case of an emergency. Students and employees will receive messages in the event of an actual emergency or an occasional system test.

When a student enrolls at CEI, their CEI provided email address is automatically entered into the emergency notification system. Students will receive an email from the school with instructions for entering additional contact information.

Distribution of CEI Annual Safety Report

CEI follows the Clery requirements to publish an Annual Safety Report (ASR) in conjunction with an Annual Fire Safety Report (AFSR) which includes annual crime statistics. The report is distributed to all current students and employees along with prospective students and prospective employees. Under Clery Act and HEA regulations, the AFSR is due on October 1 of each year, so CEI publishes and distributes their ASR/ AFSR on or before that date, based on Federal guidance and guidelines.

The ASR/AFSR should be distributed to not only all credit students and employees, but with certification students, staff and instructors in WTCE programs.

Procedure: When the ASR/AFSR is published and ready for distribution it will be forwarded to the WTCE Operations Manager. The Operations Manager or their appointed designee will then be responsible to email the ASR/AFSR out to their WTCE students and employees on or before the required report due date of October 1.
