To comply with the Clery Act, universities are required to disclose statistics for specific crimes that occur during university-sponsored trips to non-campus locations that are frequently used by students and controlled by the university during a trip (e.g., a lease or rental agreement is in place to include hotel rooms), and used to support educational purposes.
The form should be filled out by a single point of contact for the university-sponsored trip. This is typically a staff or faculty member.
West Chester University is required to request from the local law enforcement agencies Clery Act crime statistics that occurred during a qualifying WCU-sponsored trip. Any statistics that are required by the Clery Act to be disclosed to the public will be reported in West Chester's Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report.
Please submit this form for Domestic (within the U.S.) University-sponsored trips that meet the following "submit form" requirements.
- If the trip takes place internationally, please report the trip through International Programs and Services by contacting them at 610-436-3515 or at StudyAbroad@wcupa.edu.
- For a Recognized Student Organization at the University Park campus, please report the trip through either the Office of Fraternity or Sorority Life or Student Leadership and Involvement.
