Jeanne Clery Act / Crime Statistics

This report provides information regarding our compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

The “Clery Bill” (H.R.3344, S.1925, S.1930) was introduced in Congress on September 6, 1989, and was signed into law on November 8, 1990 by President George Bush as Title 2 of the “Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act.” The bill was named for Jeanne Clery who was raped and murdered in her dorm room at Lehigh University in 1986.

It took effect September 1, 1991 and the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) was charged with enforcing the law. The law required all institutions of higher education to release campus crime statistics and security policies to their current and prospective students or employees. Congress enacted this law, which was originally known as the “Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.

The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights. Amendments in 1998 added new categories to the crime statistics, an obligation to report statistics for public property in and immediately adjacent to the campus, a geographic breakdown of statistics, and a daily public crime log for schools with a police or security department. The law was also amended to require the DOE to centrally collect the crime statistics and make them publicly available. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery.

An Explanation of the Statistics Charts

The statistics reflect the numbers of crime reports occurring on campus, in non-campus (affiliated) buildings, public property, and residence halls & other campus housing, from both Police and Other University Officials for the offense categories required under The Clery Act. Although every effort has been made to avoid duplication between department and OSP reports, individual incidents may be reported multiple times within the same calendar year. Furthermore, some incidents reported to other University Officials may not actually meet the criteria for their incident type.

Collection of Statistics

The U.S. Department of Education collects and publishes the crime statistics. For more information the Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) of the U.S. Department of Education Campus Security Statistics Website is http://ope.ed.gov/security/

The OPE Campus Security Statistics Website is your direct link to reported criminal offenses for over 6000 colleges and universities in the United States. If you are thinking of attending college in a large urban city, a small liberal arts college, a specialized college, or a community college you can find their security statistics here.

On Campus: Includes all University owned or controlled buildings, open areas, and parking facilities.

Student Housing numbers are included in the on campus numbers and then separated to inform residents of crimes affecting residents directly.

Public: Any publicly owned and operated property on, or adjacent to, the University campus.

Non Campus: Includes all University property owned or controlled by the University or a student organization and is located off the main campus.

*Hate Crimes are listed as a subset of Clery Act reported offenses. For the years listed there were no hate crimes committed in association with any of the Clery Act enumerated crimes. In addition, the Clery Act requires disclosure of any act of violence (such as simple assault) and property crimes (such as vandalism) which was the result of an act of a hate crime. Such offenses are listed under Hate Crimes and any act is separately listed. Hate crimes that are not violent in nature, such as graffiti or harassment, are not included in this total.

Note: With the exception of murder/negligent manslaughter (which attempt would be listed as an aggravated assault) all attempts of the listed crimes are included.

Note: Referrals occur when no arrest/police response occurs and the matter is referred to student or employee judicial panel for University disciplinary proceedings. Referrals may include those offenses from off campus locations for which the University is responsible.
