Clery Act Statistics

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, codified at 20 USC 1092 (f) (Clery Act) as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose annual information about campus crime. Each year the University files a report with the United States Department of Education stating the incidences of crime on campus.

The following tables reflect the number of incidents for the crimes of homicide, manslaughter, forcible and nonforcible sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, and arson that occurred on or near campus for the previous three calendar years. Also included in the tables are arrests and disciplinary referrals for drug law violations, liquor violations, weapon violations, and bias-related crimes. For a definition of the crimes listed on the tables please visit http://www.hupd.harvard.edu/crime_definitions.php. For additional information on the Clery Act please visit http://www.ed.gov/admins/lead/safety/campus.html.

The statistics include crimes reported directly to the HUPD, to local law enforcement agencies, and to "campus security authorities." "Campus security authorities" are defined by the Clery Act as university officials who have "significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings." Professional mental health and religious counselors are exempt from reporting requirements.

The following tables comply with the Clery Act.
