2014 Ball State University Fire Safety Report (PDF)

The Higher Education Act, as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act, requires Title IV institutions annually to make available a Campus Security Report that discloses campus crime statistics, law enforcement, alcohol and drug policies, and emergency response procedures.

For those institutions that maintain on-campus student housing, an annual Fire Safety Report is also required. This report discloses procedures, statistics, reports and documentation on fire safety in on-campus student housing.

Every October, Ball State University makes available those reports here. The current reports are available above as PDFs.
