E/G/I/K - The referral numbers for 2011 are significantly higher because the U.S. Department of Education redefined in 2011 how referrals are to be counted. This redefinition and affiliated examples can be found on pages 70-71 of The Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting. The U.S. Department of Education now requires that institutions of higher education count as a referral ALL students listed within any sort of disciplinary report, whether or not they are charged with a conduct violation. Many of the students captured within these numbers were NOT charged with a conduct violation.

F/H/J/L - The alcohol and drug referral numbers for 2012 reflect guidance from the U.S. Department of Education.  The U.S. Department of Education requires that institutions only list referrals where the students involved violated state law and were directly involved in the incident.


Institutions are required to report statistics for certain bias-motivated crimes and crimes involving bodily injury to any person in which the victim is intentionally selected because of the actual or perceived race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or disability of the victim.
