The Clery Act specifies a standard set of offenses that must be disclosed. In order to be reportable, these crimes must have also occurred within geographic categories that are defined by federal law.
Hate Crime: a criminal offense that manifests evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the perpetrator’s bias against the victim. Under the Clery Act, there are eight categories of bias: Race, Religion, Sexual Orientation, Gender, Gender Identity, Ethnicity, National Origin, and Disability. Hate Crimes include any of the Primary Criminal Offenses and the following offenses that are motivated by bias.
For liquor, drug, and weapon offenses, the statistics are divided into two categories: individuals who were arrested and individuals who were referred to Oregon State University for disciplinary action as the result of a law violation.
