Department Of Education Faults UVM For Crime Reporting

The University of Vermont is under fire for what’s being called "serious" deficiencies in its reporting of crimes on campus.

The U.S. Department of Education found UVM did not report complete crime statistics to it for 2007. It is required to do under a federal law known as the Clery Act.

In one instance, UVM reported two sexual assaults, but missed 20 others that were reported anonymously.

Among its other findings, the report says UVM kept a crime log of burglaries, but failed to report one of them to federal reviewers.

UVM Vice President Gary Derr says the school fixed the problems when they were first reported to school officials in 2009.
