Each year, we publish the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Report (also know as the Annual Clery Report).

This report includes information about our safety and security policies and specific crime statistics for our main college campuses, outreach centers, and other locations.

We believe that our policies and programs for preventing and reducing crime – along with our emergency notices, timely warnings, and disclosure of reported crimes – promote a safer and more informed community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who was Jeanne Clery?

Jeanne Clery was a 19-year-old student who was raped and murdered in her dormitory at Lehigh University in 1986. As a result, Clery's parents campaigned for legislative reform that would require schools to share information about campus safety and security.

This resulted in the passage of the Clery Act in 1990. The Clery Act is a federal law that requires all universities and colleges that receive federal student financial aid to report crime statistics, implement a campus alert system, and publish and annual report available to current and prospective students and employees.

What types of crimes must be reported?

The Clery Report must include crimes committed on a campus, in any unobstructed public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities, such as remote classrooms.

The statistics must be gathered from campus police or security, local law enforcement, and other school officials who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, such as student judicial affairs directors. Professional mental health and religious counselors are exempt from reporting obligations, but may refer patients to a confidential reporting system if one is available.

Types of reportable crimes

Crimes are reported in seven major categories, with several sub-categories:

  1. Criminal homicide
    • Murder and non-negligent manslaughter
    • Negligent manslaughter
  2. Sex offenses
    • Forcible sex offenses
    • Non-forcible sex offenses
  3. Robbery
  4. Aggravated assault
  5. Burglary
  6. Motor vehicle theft
  7. Arson

Schools are also required to report the following three types of incidents if they result in either an arrest or disciplinary referral:

  1. Liquor law violations
  2. Drug law violations
  3. Illegal weapons possession

If both an arrest and referral are made, only the arrest is counted.

Geographical breakdown

The statistics are also broken down geographically into the following:

  1. On campus
  2. Residential facilities for students on campus
  3. Non-campus buildings
  4. Public property, such as adjacent streets and sidewalks

Schools can use a map to denote these areas.

Hate crimes

The report must also indicate if any of the reported incidents – or any other crime involving bodily injury – were hate crimes.

What is a hate crime?

A hate crime is a crime that is motivated by a bias of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or disability.

Hate crimes include any offense or attempted offense of the following types:

  • Murder or non-negligent manslaughter
  • Negligent manslaughter
  • Forcible sex offenses
  • Some non-forcible sex offenses (incest and statutory rape)
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Burglary
  • Motor vehicle theft
