Security on Campus Senior Vice President Daniel Carter reported progress this spring on Clery Act investigations by the U.S. Department of Education.
• Brigham Young University at Hawaii agreed to rectify crime reporting discrepancies without further action from the DOE, Carter said. The complaint was sparked by the student newspaper when it questioned the school’s disclosure methods.\n
• Cincinnati State Technical and Community College was cleared of any wrongdoing after a review by the DOE’s Office of the Inspector General. The probe was launched following concerns about the reporting of a 1999 drug arrest and sexual misconduct case.\n
• A DOE review found Salem (W.Va.) International University in violation of underreporting sexual assaults and other crimes between 1997 and 1999, Carter said. The DOE is currently awaiting a response from the university.\n
• The University of Utah cited different reporting practices than nearby Westminster College as the reason for lower liquor, weapon and drug violations, Carter said. Carter had questioned the university after comparing statistics at the two schools.\n
• The University of Wisconsin at Madison said it erred by not including all sexual assault statistics in its Clery Act report for 1999 and 2000. Revised data were sent to the DOE in December.
