College pays $15,000 fine to Education Dept.
School fined for violating Clery Act agrees to settle case over crime statistics
"We are glad to have this issue behind us so we can move on and focus on the mission of the college, which is educating young men and women," Myers said in a press release. "[The college] continues to strive to be a safe campus in a safe community in one of the safest states in the country." Daniel Carter, vice president for the national watchdog organization Security on Campus, said the settlement is a big step toward cracking down on schools that violate the Clery Act.
"Progress is being made in the right direction," Carter said. "In the coming congressional session, we hope to get everything resolved to where there is an adequate system in place so that schools will be complying with this law once and for all."
