Central Michigan University disciplinary action referrals for drug and alcohol violations on the rise

Central Michigan University has seemingly begun to crack down harder on drug and alcohol violations at the university according to its most recent Clery report.

The number of liquor law violations referred for disciplinary actions increased from 333 to 473 in the past year, a 42.3% increase.  Meanwhile, the number of drug law violations for disciplinary actions nearly doubled from 65 to 125 in the same span.

Conversely, the actual number of alcohol law and drug law arrests on-campus remained relatively constant between 2012 and 2014. Liquor law arrests decreased from 153 to 136 and drug law arrests increased from 32 to 36 in that time.

On-campus offense totals 2012-2014.

Non campus alcohol and drug law arrests tells the same story. The number of liquor law arrests decreased from 39 to 38 and drug law arrests remained at six between 2012 and 2014.

As previously reported, the number of reported sexual assaults has continued to climb. Reported sexual assault totals have increased each year since 2012. From 2012 to 2014, the number of sexual assaults reported doubled from 7 to 14, although there are reasons to believe these numbers significantly underestimate the actual number of sexual assaults at CMU.

Of the 31 sexual assaults reported at CMU, four were said to have occurred at a non campus location.
