Safety & Security


Campus Safety and Security at Lancaster Theological Seminary is taken very seriously and is a shared responsibility. The best protection against campus crime is an aware, informed, alert campus community—students, faculty and staff who use reason and caution—along with a strong law-enforcement presence.

The vast majority of our students, faculty, staff and visitors do not experience crime at LTS. However, despite our best efforts, crime sometimes occurs. The information provided in the 2013 Annual Safety & Security Report is a result of our commitment to campus safety and security and in compliance with the federal law, The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (The Clery Act), and the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting Act (formerly known as the College and University Security Information Act).


Mandatory Reporters:  A Policy for Faculty and Professional Staff

The Seminary's mandatory-reporting document outlines our policy regarding mandated reporting of concerning behaviors, discrimination, harassment and crimes by employees. It explains briefly the meaning and purpose of mandatory reporters, outlines the legal context, and articulates a straightforward set of guidelines for all employees to follow.


If you have concerns, questions or comments about campus safety and security, mandatory reporters, federal or state law requirements or LTS’s compliance with these laws, please contact Elizabeth Bennett, Vice President of Operations & Finance, at ebennett@lancasterseminary.edu or (717) 290-8713.
