Montana State University Crime Statistics

Under the Clery Act, Montana Sate University-Bozeman is required to report annual crime statistics showing reported occurrences of specific types of crime for the benefit of current/prospective students and employees.

Click on the following link to view Clery crime statistics for individual universities and to compare the crime statistics of multiple universities: http://ope.ed.gov/security/

*Data for Sex Offenses were also reported anonymously to a Victim’s Advocacy Center for these reporting years and are included in these totals. A vast majority of Non-forcible Sex Offenses are acquaintance assaults. Montana State University’s strong victims’ assistance resources and public education programs on women’s safety encourages reporting and reflects sensitivity and trust in campus services, not a higher incident of assaults.

*Statistics pertaining to referrals for disciplinary action reflect those incidents of alcohol, drugs, and weapons violations that were referred to the Dean of Students, Director of Residence Life, or the Greek Leadership for student conduct review and adjudication.

DEFINITIONS

Campus is defined as “any building or property owned or controlled by an institution of higher education within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s educational purposes, including residence halls; and property within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).”

Non-Campus building or property is defined as “any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization recognized by the institution; and any building or property (other than a branch campus) owned or controlled by an institution of higher education that is used in direct support of, or in relation to, the institution’s educational purposes, is used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution.”

Public Property is defined as “all public property that is within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution, such as a sidewalk, a street, other thoroughfare, or parking facility, and is adjacent to a facility owned or controlled by the institution if the facility is used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to the institution’s educational purposes.”
