In accordance with federal regulations, members of the university community are advised that information regarding registered sex offenders, as defined by section 170101(j) of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (42 U.S.C. 14071(j)) may be obtained by contacting the Rhode Island Parole Board and Sex Offender Community Notification Unit, 111 Howard Avenue – Mathias Building #56, Cranston, Rhode Island 02920.

The Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue this statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information is provided by the State concerning registered sex offenders and where it may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders to register in the state and to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student.
In the State of Rhode Island convicted sex offenders must register with the local police department in their municipality. Every person convicted on or after July 1, 1997, including juveniles sentenced as adults of an offense for which registration is required as part of the sentence imposed upon conviction, is to register and reregister with the local police agencies.
In addition, all persons convicted of violations under the law of the United States or any other state substantially similar to an offense for which registration is required shall provide to the local agency all necessary information within ten days of establishing a residence and reregistering within ten days of any change.
Any person wanting information on registered sex offenders or related information should contact the local municipal police agency with jurisdiction for the location of our campuses.
