Information about campus security programs and policies and the incidence of crime is published in conformity with the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act).
The Clery Act, a federal law, requires universities to report statistical information regarding criminal activity on campus and in the neighboring area, as well as safety information, to the campus community. The definitions used for purposes of these reports are particular to the act and may not be consistent with those definitions used by other entities that collect crime information, such as the South East Chicago Commission (SECC) and local and campus newspapers. Reports of crime occurring in the neighborhood bounded by 47th and 61st Streets, Cottage Grove Avenue, and Lake Michigan are gathered by the SECC.
You can find Clery Act data on the University’s Common Sense website.
