Understanding the Clery Act Sex Crime Statistics

Be in the know

The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs (Title IV) to collect, retain, and disclose information about crime on or near their campuses. The Bates Security Clery Act Crime Statistics Annual Report notifies students, employees, potential students and employees, and the U.S. Department of Education of statistical information regarding certain crimes reported to have occurred on campus and adjacent public areas, and to provide the campus community with information on procedures for reporting such crimes.

Under the guidelines of the Clery Act, reported cases of sexual assault are classified as either Forcible Sex Offenses or Unforcible Sex Offenses. The Clery Act does not differentiate between completed and attempted sex offenses in the disclosure of statistical data.

Forcible Sex Offenses

    • Forcible Rape
    • Forcible Sodomy
    • Sexual Assault with an Object
    • Forcible Fondling

Unforcible Sex Offenses

    • Incest
    • Statutory Rape

If you or someone you know is a survivor thenĀ take action!
