As an applicant for admissions to the University of Virginia School of Medicine, we are required by law to notify you of the University’s compliance with the Clery Act. Federal law requires the University to publish an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. The report includes information on crime prevention, fire safety, University Police law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, and statistics about crimes that occurred during the previous three years on Grounds or in designated areas near the Grounds as well as in other locations specified by law. The annual report is available at http://cleryact.virginia.edu/report. You may request a hard copy of the report from the University by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
