Five things to know about Emory University’s 2016 crime statistics

A federal law called the Clery Act requires the nation’s colleges and universities by Oct. 1 to release crime data for the most recent three years in a report that includes efforts to improve safety.

Emory University, which has about 15,000 students, has a report with detailed data on crimes ranging from sexual assault to criminal damage.

Here are five facts of note from the report on its main campus:

  • Six reported rapes.
  • There were 17 reported stalking incidents.
  • There were 29 reported burglaries.
  • There were 148 liquor law violation disciplinary referrals. That’s about half of the 2015 total.
  • No hate crimes were reported.
