The Pennsylvania College and University Security and Information Act

It is important to note that the crime classifications for which colleges and universities must provide statistics differ under state and federal law. Statistics for certain crime classifications might appear to be different. For example, the federal statistics for motor vehicle theft differ from the state statistics for the same category because the federal classification includes attempted motor vehicle thefts, while state law requires institutions to separately report attempted motor vehicle thefts.

The Pennsylvania College and University Security and Information Act - Campus Crime Statistics for Lehigh University

 
  The Pennsylvania College and University Security and Information Act requires the release of crime statistics and rates to
  students and employees, which are reported to State Police for publication in the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Report (UCR),
  and it requires that those statistics be available to applicants and new employees upon request.
  The rate is based on the actual number of Full Time Equivalent (FTE) students and employees, which is calculated accord-
  ing to a state-mandated formula. The index in the table below is based on incidents per 100,000 FTEs. The University's FTE
  population for 2016 was 8429, for 2017 the FTE population was 8407, and for 2018 the FTE population was 8262.
