The University of Utah released two major safety reports this week—an accounting of overall campus crime and fire statistics required by federal law and a housing-specific analysis dictated by state law.
Under the Clery Act, U.S. higher education institutions are required to gather information about all crimes committed within the main campus boundary, in nearby neighborhoods and on satellite campuses. Incidents reported at University of Utah Health Hospitals & Clinics also are included in the final report. This year, health campus statistics are highlighted in red.
This year, the 2022 crime reports reflect a return to full capacity on campus after the COVID-19 pandemic—in housing, hospitals and clinics, and classroom spaces. They also show continuing issues of violence against healthcare workers, steady reports of stalking and harassment, an uptick in on-campus burglaries and motor vehicle thefts, and an increase in alcohol offenses.
