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 according 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 2017 was 8407, for 2018 the FTE population was 8262, and for 2019 the FTE population was 8309.
