Jeanne Clery Act/Crime Statistics

A Message from the President

The safety program at Montclair State University is a community effort for the general benefit of students, faculty, staff and visitors. We are partners in creating an environment that is safe and promotes learning, social interaction and leisure activities.

A university community, like a residential community, reflects the society at large. As in other places, crime does occur on university campuses. Montclair State University has taken many steps to create a secure campus. This brochure contains important information on crime prevention and is intended to increase your safety awareness.

Let us work together to increase awareness and deter crime in order to maintain a secure campus.

Susan A. Cole, President

On Campus:
Includes all University owned or controlled buildings, open areas, and parking facilities.

Student Housing numbers are included in the on campus numbers and then separated to inform residents of crimes affecting residents directly.

Public: Any publicly owned and operated property on, or adjacent to, the University campus.

Non Campus: Includes all University property owned or controlled by the University or a student organization and is located off the main campus and reported to the University Police Department.

*Hate Crimes are listed as a subset of Clery Act reported offenses. For the years listed there were no hate crimes committed in association with any of the Clery Act enumerated crimes. In addition, the Clery Act requires disclosure of any act of violence (such as simple assault) and property crimes (such as vandalism) which was the result of an act of a hate crime. Such offenses are listed under Hate Crimes and any act is separately listed. Hate crimes that are not violent in nature, such as graffiti or harassment, are not included in this total.

Note: With the exception of murder/negligent manslaughter (which attempt would be listed as an aggravated assault) all attempts of the listed crimes are included.

Note: Referrals occur when no arrest/police response occurs and the matter is referred to student or employee judicial panel for University disciplinary proceedings. Referrals may include those offenses from off campus locations for which the University is responsible.

Hate Crimes 

The University has adopted a zero tolerance in regards to offenses, crimes, and atmospheres of hate. Community members are encouraged to report incidents and crime of hate.  Contact the University Police if you would like to report an incident of hate or bias based crime.  In addition, services are available to students, faculty and staff through the Bias Response Taskforce (BRT).  The Bias Response Taskforce is a University collaboration of Equity and Diversity Programs, University Police, Dean of Students, Counseling and Psychological Services among many others.  Visit the BRT on the web montclair.edu/equity-and-diversity/bias-response-taskforce/
