Criminal Statistics

Pursuant to federal legislation known as the Clery Act, the University of Central Arkansas must annually distribute statistics on certain crimes occurring on the campus which includes homicide, rape, sexual offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft, as well as data on the number of arrests for liquor law violations, drug abuse violations, and weapons possession. The University of Central Arkansas Police Department also maintains primary jurisdiction over all off-campus fraternity houses.

Criminal activities, if any, at off-campus student organizations (those recognized by the campus) are required to be monitored and reported from information collected from local police agencies. This is required under Public Law 101-542, Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act, as amended by Public Law 102.26, the Higher Education Technical Amendments.

Our current published Clery criminal statistics are available in our Clery Annual Security & Fire Safety Report on pages 8 and 9.

 

Other Locations

UCA maintains relationships with three (3) other campuses or locations where a very small number of students may complete more than 50% of their coursework toward a degree. These institutions/locations and Web sites on which Clery crime statistics and other security information can be obtained are as follows:


  • Mid-South Community College

http://www.ope.ed.gov/security

    • Baptist Hospital School of Nursing

    • St. Vincent Infirmary
      • This is not a Title IV institution and Clery crime statistics are not available.

 

DWI and Public Drunkenness are not a part of the total liquor law violations.
