  1. The statistical categories for sex offenses have changed. Sexual offenses are now categorized as rape (includes sodomy and sexual assault with an object), fondling, incest and statutory rape.
  2. Hate crimes are crimes that manifest evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the victim’s actual or perceived Race (RA), Religion (RE), Sexual Orientation (SO), Gender (G), Ethnicity (E), National Origin (NO), Gender Identity (GI) or Disability (D). Reportable hate offense crime categories include all of the aforementioned crime offenses as well as larceny/theft, simple assault, intimidation and vandalism/malicious destruction of property.
  3. Note: The Maryland General Assembly passed Senate bill 364 reclassified the use or possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana to a civil offense and is no longer reportable under Clery. The decriminalization law took effect October 1, 2014.
  4. Individuals not arrested but referred for possible campus disciplinary action.
