On Campus (including Student Residence Halls) Public Property Non-Campus Property Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct

support of, or in relation to, the institutions educational purposes, is frequently used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution 5 The Clery Act Considerations To Make Repeated Use Every Year & Same Location (Hotel, Houses, etc) Location matters not the students going

Short Stay Away Trips Traditional Study Abroad Programs 6 The Clery Act Non Campus Property Off Campus Trips Off-campus trips have been clarified as follows Repeated use of a location for school-sponsored trip- institution sponsors students on overnight trip every year and student in same hotel

each year, then statistics for common areas and rooms used by students should be included as non-campus geography. The key is the use of the location by the institution not the number of days or if used by the same people. 7 The Clery Act Non Campus Property Short Stay Trips Short stay away trips have been clarified as follows Institution sponsored short stay away trips of more than one night for its students, all locations used by students during the trip, controlled by the institution during the trip and used in support of educational purposes should be treated as non-campus property. Any classroom or housing space specified in the agreement between the institution and

the third party providing the space would also be non-campus property. If a third party contractor entered into an agreement with institution to provide housing or classroom space then assumed that institution under control of space. (An example of third party no control would be a host institution making arrangements for your institution to stay somewhere during a trip) 8 The Clery Act Owning vs. Controlling Space Owning disclose crime statistics that occur within that space at ANY time.

Controlling Informal or Formal Agreement disclose crime statistics for the dates, times, space contracted for in the agreement. Space Vs. Program Agreements Is your contract for the physical location or use of the program? Third Party Leasing Agreements

OR Who has "significant responsibility for student and campus activities. 12 The Clery Act Know Your Role- Campus Security Authority Campus Security Authorities are required to report crime statistics to Campus Police. Crimes reported to a Campus Security made "in good faith" need to be reported. "In good faith means there is a reasonable basis for believing that the information is not simply rumor or hearsay. That is, there is little or no reason to doubt the validity of the information. A crime can be reported by a victim, witness, third party, or

even the offender. 13 The Clery Act Know Your Role- Campus Security Authority Get the facts - When, what, where, who, etc. Report all Clery Act related crimes immediately to the Campus Police Department so the campus can comply with timely warning policies and have accurate crime statistics for the annual security report Inform victims of their options, including confidential reporting options and offer referrals to resources (e.g., campus assistance programs or counseling service, if appropriate)
