To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Nebraska Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
1. The total number of forcible sexual offenses that occurred on the Nevada State College campus in each year from 1990-2000 inclusive. Also requested are: (1) the date of each offense, and (2) whether the offense occurred on-campus or off-campus. A forcible sexual offense is defined by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education as: "any sexual act directed against another person, forcibly and/or against that person’s will; or not forcibly or against the person’s will where the victim is incapable of giving consent" (https://www2.ed.gov/campus-crime/HTML/pdf/cs_forcible.pdf). The Office notes further: "Please count one offense per victim. In cases where several offenders commit a Forcible Sex Offense against one person, count one Forcible Sex Offense. Do not count the number of offenders."
2. The total number of nonforcible sexual offenses that occurred on the Nevada State College campus in each year from 1990-2000 inclusive. Also requested are: (1) the date of each offense, and (2) whether the offense occurred on-campus or off-campus. A nonforcible sexual offense is defined by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education as "as unlawful, non-forcible sexual intercourse" (https://www2.ed.gov/campus-crime/HTML/pdf/cs_non-forcible.pdf).
The total number of forcible and of nonforcible sexual offenses is not available on the U.S. Campus Safety and Security website (https://ope.ed.gov/campussafety/#/), which covers only the years 2001-2016. However, this information should have been documented by the Nevada State College, as the Clery Act was passed in 1990.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.
Nevada State College was not in operation prior to 2002. Therefore, the 1990-2000 data request is not applicable.
