Crime Reporting Procedure

The 1990 Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act, more commonly known as the Clery Act, requires that colleges report statistics concerning the occurrence of certain criminal offenses that occur on campus, as well as on public property adjacent to campus. It is the responsibility of the director of campus safety to compile and publish these statistics for the campus community.

The offenses that are required to be reported are as follows:

  • Murder/non-negligent manslaughter - The willful killing of one human being by another.

  • Negligent manslaughter - The killing of another person through gross negligence.

  • Robbery - Taking or attempting to take property in the custody of another by force or violence, or by the threat of force or violence.

  • Sex Offenses - Any sexual act directed against another person using force or against his/her will, or where the person is incapable of giving consent; incidents of incest and statutory rape.

  • Aggravated Assault - An assault that causes a treatable medical injury, or an assault with a weapon, regardless of whether the weapon is actually used or there is injury.

  • Burglary - Using force to unlawfully enter a structure with the intent to commit larceny or another felony.

  • Motor Vehicle Theft - The theft or attempted theft of a motor vehicle.

  • Arson - The willful or malicious burning or attempt to burn real or personal property.

  • Weapons Law Violations - violations of laws or ordinances dealing with weapons offenses, regulatory in nature, such as carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a dangerous weapon, etc.

  • Drug Law Violations - Violations of state or local laws regarding the unlawful possession, sale, use, growing, manufacturing or making of illegal drugs.

  • Liquor Law Violations - Violations of laws or ordinances regulating the sale, provision, and use of intoxicating liquor.

  • Hate Crimes - Any crime (in addition to those listed above) involving assault or property damage that manifests evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the victim's actual or perceived race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or disability.

Students who become victims of a crime, or who witness a criminal act should report the incident to the Department of Campus Safety as soon as possible. Students may also report the incident to any Student Affairs staff member. Requests for confidentiality will be honored to the extent possible, taking into account the College's obligations to investigate and ensure the safety of all members of the community. Information regarding the date, location and type of incident, as well as a brief description of the incident, must be provided so that the incident can be properly classified. The staff member receiving this information will forward it to the director of campus safety so that the incident can be included in the College's annual crime statistics. Only the information described above will be provided. The identity of the reporting person will remain confidential.

Religious Services

Albion College Chapel

worship at Albion College Chapel         A Place of Grace

Student-led Christian worship at Albion College Chapel takes place every Wednesday night of the academic year at 9:00 p.m. in the Kellogg Center "Stack" (second floor). Each week, the Christian body on campus gathers in unity. While the music is primarily contemporary Christian, students keep many traditional aspects (e.g., Benediction, hymns, prayers) and weave together different musical genres (e.g., Gospel, praise songs from different countries). This is a uniquely Albion College phenomenon. It is a tremendous expression of Christian unity on campus and in the world. Leadership for Chapel is drawn from all Christian groups and Christian traditions. For students on the leadership team, Chapel is a great opportunity to develop ministry skills and discern calling. Albion College Chapel is a student-led program, sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain. All members of the Albion College community are welcome to attend and participate.


Each year for the past twelve years, Asian Awareness Group (AAG) hosts a campus celebration of Diwali, supported by the Office of the Chaplain and the Office of Intercultural Affairs. This is normally held in November.

Lessons and Carols

One of Albion College's most beloved traditions, the Music Department sponsors "A Service of Lessons and Carols" once per year during Advent. This is a wonderful celebration of sacred vocal music, and for many, a deeply meaningful Christian worship experience. The public and all members of the Albion College community are welcome. Free.

Catholic Mass

Catholic Mass takes place on campus once per month. The Office of the Chaplain advertises this monthly. Father Joseph Gray of St. John Catholic Church (Albion) officiates. Open to the entire campus community.

On Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m., the Catholic Connections student organization provides a ride service to/from the 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. John Catholic Church (1020 Irwin Ave., Albion). All students are welcome.

Jewish Holidays

Albion College Hillel organizes programs throughout the academic year for campus to observe Jewish holidays and raise awareness of Jewish tradition. The Office of the Chaplain and Office of Intercultural Affairs provides support.

Faith in Transition

Being a Christian in College

Saturday-Sunday, November 9-10, 2013

United Methodist youth are invited to Albion College for an overnight retreat to experience and inspire Christian living in a college setting. The program will run from noon Saturday to noon Sunday and involve a Bible Study, opportunity to get to know our Christian Living Community students and other Christians on campus, have discussions about Christian living in a college environment, and discover how Albion College students live out their Christian faith.

Youth will stay overnight in the residence halls of some of our Christian student leaders. This is part of the experience of the program.

This program is free, including lodging and all meals and snacks. Youth are not required to bring money to participate. All we ask is that youth/youth groups have their own transportation to/from Albion College.

Registration is on a first-come, first-registered basis, with limited spaces available. Youth must return a completed registration form, signed by her/him as well as a parent/guardian. We encourage early registration, and our final deadline is November 4, 2013.
