The Clery Act requires Oregon State University to collect and report statistics on a specific list of crimes that have occurred in specific geographical areas defined by the Department of Education. This page contains a thorough description of the types of crimes and reportable areas covered under the act.
In addition to the primary criminal offenses, the following crimes are also classified as hate crimes when there is evidence that the offense was committed with bias against one of the categories of bias listed.
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.
On-Campus: any building or property owned or controlled by Oregon State University within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the core campus, and used by Oregon State University in direct support of, or in a manner related to Oregon State University’s educational purposes, including student housing facilities; and any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the core campus that is owned by Oregon State University, but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students and supports institutional purposes, such as a food or other retail vendor. Additionally, locations within one mile of Oregon State University’s core campuses are considered for inclusion in the on-campus group. Before these locations are included, their functions and relationship to the university are evaluated.
