Crime statistics

Each year, Earlham College is required by federal mandate to provide public access to certain information about crimes reported on or near campus. This federal statute, known as the Clery Act — formally, The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act — was enacted in 1990 and calls specifically for the disclosure of criminal offenses, hate offenses and arrests reported on campus or public property near campus dating back three (3) calendar years.

Below are several links to a PDF document that supply this information, as provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s Campus Security Statistics website, as well as other associated resources. Please note: According to the OPE Campus Security Statistics Report Index, “The statistics found on this website represent alleged criminal offenses reported to campus security authorities and/or local police agencies. Therefore, the data collected do not necessarily reflect prosecutions or convictions for crime.”

The 2023 Earlham College Annual Security and Safety Report (pdf), includes specific security and safety related policies, as well as statistics for criminal and hate offenses, arrests, disciplinary actions and fires for calendar years 2019-2021.

Daily crime log

The Clery Act requires that institutions of higher education maintain a daily crime log. This log may be either a hard copy log or an electronic format and accessible on campus. The crime log for the “most recent 60-day period” must be available for public review during normal business hours. Any requests to view logs older than the 60 day recent period must be made available within two business days of the request for public inspection.

The daily crime log, a hard copy, for Earlham College is maintained in the Department of Public Safety. Earlham College does not make available an electronic version of the daily crime log.
