Reporting Criminal Activities


Reporting Criminal Activity

Students, faculty, and staff of Western Governors University (WGU) are strongly encouraged to report any criminal activity that occurs within the university community to local law enforcement. Western Governors University (WGU) does not employ a campus police force; therefore, all criminal activity should be reported to the local authorities in a timely manner. In addition to contacting law enforcement, contact the WGU reporting contact for the appropriate office if you see unsafe conditions at a university location.

Crime Reporting Confidentiality

WGU does not currently have a policy for reporting crimes anonymously or confidentially except in the case of discrimination, harassment or sexual violence (see Discrimination Grievance Procedures). WGU does not report personally identifiable information in the annual crime statistics.

How to Report an Emergency Situation

In emergency situations, immediately dial 9-1-1 to alert authorities. Be prepared to provide the following information to emergency responders:
  • Name, telephone number, and exact location of the emergency
  • The nature and extent of the emergency


How to Report a Non-emergency Situation

In non-emergency situations, immediately report criminal offenses to the appropriate local authority, and to the appropriate WGU location contact.  Non-emergency contact information for WGU locations is as follows.
