Annual Campus Security Report


All crimes and incidents are reported in accordance with Uniform Crime Reporting procedures and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act as required by the United States Department of Education. Clery Act Crime Statistics are compiled from January 1-December 31 and updated by October 15 of each year. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on university campuses this year, the Department of Education extended the due date for the 2020 report to December 31.


The Annual Security Report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Northwest Nazarene University and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security.
