Hate Crime Notification

SUNY Canton is required to annually report campus crime statistics to the U.S. Department of Education as required by Title 20 of the U.S. Code Section 1092(f). This information can be found on the U.S. Department of Education’s website.

Legislation S.2060-A/A.3694-A amends the education law to require a college's advisory committee on campus security to review current policies and procedures for educating the campus community about bias related and hate crimes, reporting hate crimes, and assisting victims during hate crime investigations. This legislation also updates the procedure for disseminating information on campus crime statistics, and specifically requires the reporting and posting of hate crime offenses. It requires this information to be made available on the college's website, no longer simply providing students information about how to access it within the campus catalogue, student handbook and viewbook. Colleges are also required to adopt a plan providing for the investigation of hate crimes on campus and inform incoming students about hate crime prevention measures.

This legislation will require colleges that receive state funding to modernize and enhance their disclosure of hate crimes that occur on campus. To ensure students remain safe on college campuses in New York, the bill also creates a clear obligation on the part of colleges to investigate potential hates crimes and report them to law enforcement. This bill also strengthens existing reporting and information disclosure laws pertaining to identifying and addressing bias crimes on college campuses.
