The University of Oregon has released its annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report for 2022, as required by the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, also called the Clery Act.

The document, known informally as the annual security report and posted on the university’s Clery Act website, is prepared yearly to provide information on safety and security programs, practices and statistics. The report was distributed via email to all UO students and employees Sept. 30, consistent with federal requirements.

Federal law requires very specific information in Clery reports. That includes crimes reported to law enforcement or to university representatives and crimes on specific property owned or controlled by the university or in public areas that run through or are adjacent to campus.

Additionally, the report must include crimes from those locations, regardless of the victims’ association with the university. The statistics include any reports that are made in good faith to the university, not just to law enforcement, including anonymous complaints and regardless of the existence or outcome of an investigation.

The report is prepared with data and information provided by the University of Oregon Police Department; the Office of the Dean of Students, including student conduct; Safety and Risk Services; the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance, including the Title IX coordinator; UO Housing; other campus security authorities; and local law enforcement agencies.

Statistics in the annual Clery report are collected and presented by calendar year. The just-published edition includes statistics from 2021, as well as 2020 and 2019.

The report also includes information for reporting Clery crimes to law enforcement and the university, annual fire statistics for all residential buildings, and other resources for crime victims.
