The safety of our students, faculty and guests is a top priority at Piedmont.  We have an on-site security team committed to maintaining safety and a track record demonstrating that Piedmont is a safe campus.  Like many universities, Piedmont utilizes a text emergency notification system that is available free to all students, faculty and staff. designed to inform of an incident or possible threat on campus with instructions of what to do. All buildings on campus are equipped with a keyless entry that is requires a programmed swipe card for entry. In the Residence Halls each room is privately keyed.  Click here to view the University's Emergency Preparedness Plan.

Campus Security Act and Clery Compliance

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act is a federal statute codified, with implementing regulations in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.

The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities, that participate in federal financial aid programs, to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses.

The law is named for victim Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman in 1986. The backlash against unreported crimes on numerous campuses across the country led to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Clery Act, signed in 1990, was originally known as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act.

The report contains information and crime statistics for the three previous calendar years regarding crimes that occurred on campus and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible to the campus. The report also contains information regarding campus security and personal safety topics such as crime prevention, fire safety, safety and security on campus.

A printed log of daily activity is available that provides information and incidents that have been reported to the Piedmont International University Security Department. For more information concerning this daily log, please contact Mr. Kenny Long at 336.995.8341 or in person at the Security Administration building at 420 South Broad Street, Winston Salem, NC 27101.
