Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

Crime Statistics

About the crime statistics 

These are the crimes that have been reported to the University Police Department by victims who have filed a report, by Campus Security Authorities who have been made aware of a criminal incident, or by other law enforcement agencies. Some categories include footnotes below each table. More specific information about crime definitions and how these statistics are counted is available in the section titled “Annual disclosure of crime statistics.” These statistics are reported to the Department of Education annually.  

Criminal offenses reported by hierarchy 

This table includes Clery Act crimes reported by hierarchy, meaning that each incident is counted only once even if multiple crimes occurred. For example, if an aggravated assault and murder occurred in the same incident, only the murder would be reflected in these statistics. However, sex offenses are always counted — so if a rape and murder occurred in the same incident, both crimes would be reflected in these statistics.

Additionally, the on-campus student housing category is a subset of the on-campus property category. The on-campus property category lists crimes that occurred on any campus property, including housing. The housing category reflects only those crimes which occurred in student housing.

Crimes with unknown locations 

Under the Clery Act, the university is required to disclose statistics regarding crimes which occurred on campus property, non-campus property, or public property within or immediately adjacent to campus. Some of the following crimes may have qualified to be counted in the statistics reported in the above tables; however, they were reported with no information or insufficient information about location. The university is not required to include these statistics in this report, but they are nonetheless included in order to provide campus community members with the best possible information about crime on or near campus: 

  • Eight (8) rapes were reported with unknown locations.
  • One (1) aggravated assault was reported with an unknown location.
  • One (1) harassment was reported with an unknown location.
  • Two (2) stalking incidents were reported with unknown locations.

It is not uncommon for a crime to be reported without information about a location. This could happen for a number of reasons — for example, the location may be unknown to all parties involved, the reporting person may not be able to recall the exact location of the crime, or the information was not disclosed to a third-party who then reported the incident to the police. 

It is possible that the incidents reported above are duplicates, but the university did not have the information to discern that redundancy.

The University Police Department makes its best effort to share all relevant information about a crime with the campus community, but some information may not always be available. 

Information about these crimes has been shared in the interest of transparency and so campus community members have the information they need to be responsible for their safety and the safety of others.
