  • Study Abroad Trip to the Holy Land - 1 day ago | 111 views

    Posted: 10/30/14 8:54 AM

    Professors Steve Frankel and Sarah Melcher are co-teaching a course in Spring 2015 in preparation for a study abroad trip to the Holy Land. The class, which meets on Tu/Th from 1-2:15pm will be cross-listed in Philosophy and Theology.  You can take the course for credit in either. The Philosophy listing is PHIL 315 and the Theology listing is THEO 291. You’ll be able to take an additional course during the actual trip to the Holy Land for credit in either Theology or Philosophy. The Spring course will incorporate study of the Bible and archaeology, especially those passages that connect to the sites that we will be visiting on the study trip. We’ll also read some texts on the Philosophy of Religion, including Pascal and Spinoza.  These will help prepare us for our discussions in the Holy Land.

    During this study trip, through visits to archaeological sites in Jerusalem, the Galilee, Bethlehem, and the Judean Desert, students will gain first-hand experience of the geography, climate and physical settings that shaped Second Temple Judaism, the narrative of the gospels, and aspects of early Christian theology. For further information about the study abroad trip and the Spring 2015 course, please contact Steve Frankel at and/or Sarah Melcher at

  • XU Alert Me and Clery Compliance Update - 2 days ago | 325 views

    Posted: 10/29/14 1:41 PM

    To the Campus Community,

    I wanted to provide you with a quick update regarding recent changes in how we report certain crimes on the Xavier campus and also in our XU Alert Me communication process.  A committee of Xavier staff members came together to confirm that Xavier continues  in compliance with federal law and that we are doing all we can to promote a safe and informed campus community. Committee members included representatives from the offices of Student Integrity, Title IX, Xavier Police, and Residence Life.  These areas, along with University legal counsel and a national consultant, collaborated on this work.

    The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) (the Clery Act) is the federal law that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about certain crimes on and around their campuses. 

    Under this law, Xavier University must follow specific guidelines on crime reporting, emergency planning and preparedness, fire safety and programing and safety communications with the campus community.  It also requires that we publish an annual report detailing specific policies and procedures around campus safety, crime and fire statistics for the last three years, and fire safety and crime prevention programming conducted on campus. In addition, with the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act in 2013 (VAWA), more reporting and other requirements have been placed on universities in the areas of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, and stalking. Since Clery and VAWA only cover certain types of crimes that occur at certain places they are commonly referred to a “Clery Crimes.”

    As part of these ongoing safety and compliance initiatives and in preparation for the new requirements found in VAWA, our committee hired D. Stafford and Associates, nationally known experts in Clery compliance, to assist with a Clery overview of the University. The six-month study provided a roadmap for the University to confirm compliance with the Clery Act and the new requirements of VAWA.  The study covered matters like how we count crimes that occur within our Clery geography, how Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are identified and report crimes, and how the University communicates emergencies and crimes to members of the Xavier Community.   

    In the coming days new information that grew out of our study will become apparent, for example:

    • An enhanced process to count and classify crimes, taking into account VAWA and best practices.

    • There will be some additional information concerning Clery Crimes that were reported to the offices of the Title IX Coordinator, Student Integrity, and Xavier’s Advocate Program (statistics only, no identifying information provided) in addition to those Clery Crimes reported to the Xavier Police Department.

    As a result, the latest Annual Security Report for 2013 (published and circulated to the campus Community on October 1, 2014), will show an increase in some Clery Crimes and a decrease in others over 2012. This does not necessary mean there was a large increase or decrease in crimes on campus, just a new way of counting and classifying them as required by the Clery Act and newly implemented by VAWA.

    The Clery Act also requires universities to issue two types of safety notifications to the campus:

    • Immediate Notifications are issued for incidents involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students and employees on campus.  Examples include weather emergencies, violent crimes in progress or a fire.  The XU Alert Me System is used to communicate Immediate Notifications with the campus community. Anyone with an email address is automatically registered to receive these notifications via email. Additionally, student phone numbers provided during the registration process have been entered into the XU Alert Me database and students will automatically receive text and voice messages, in addition to emails, from XU Alert Me for Immediate Notifications.  Students are able to change the phone number listed in the system, but cannot remove the number from the system.  Faculty and staff are not automatically registered to receive the text and voice messages but may “opt in” to receive the notices.


    • Timely Warnings are issued for crimes that occur on campus that, in the judgment of the Chief of the Xavier University Police Department or a designee, constitutes a serious or continuing threat to the University community.  Timely Warnings could include incidents of arson, aggravated assault, criminal homicide, robbery, burglary and sexual offenses.  Timely Warnings are designed to keep the Xavier community informed and represent the commitment of Xavier University to promote a safe educational and work environment. As a result of the study, we determined we needed to amend the Timely Warning process to attempt to reach the appropriate members of the Xavier community.  Timely Warnings will now be emailed to all accounts.

    You can review your current XU Alert Me profile and make changes to your contact information and notification preferences at

    In addition to these required communications, the University may periodically issue Public Safety Notices (PSNs) for safety-related issues that do not rise to the level of Immediate Notifications or Timely Warnings. PSNs are posted on the Xavier Safety website. Notifications of PSNs will also be posted on Twitter via the @Xavier_Safety account.

    Thank you for your attention to this important information. If you have questions or want to learn more, about Xavier‘s Clery Compliance, please visit or contact me at
