Each year, Kansas State is required to publish an annual campus security and fire safety report in compliance with the Clery Act.
In 2018, K-State documented one racially-based hate crime.
In an emailed statement, Cindy Hollingsworth, executive director of news and communications services, said the report was based on a “criminal threat” made on Aug. 16, 2018.
“Upon review, K-State Athletics was listed as the victim,” Hollingsworth said.
In an earlier email, Hollingsworth iterated that inclusion in the report “does not determine authoritatively whether a reported crime actually occurred.”
“Kansas State University is fully committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all,” Hollingsworth said.
Between 2016 and 2018, K-State also saw an increase in on-campus liquor law violations that amounted to more than 65 percent.
In 2017, on-campus drug abuse violations spiked at 56 citations, but tapered off to 36 in 2018. However, drug abuse arrests on campus property doubled from 2017 to 2018.
Reported on-campus rape was down in 2018, showing a 60 percent decrease since 2016.
