2004-2005: Campus crime and the Clery Act

Students' stories making a difference!

In an effort to increase awareness and use of public information laws, in 2004 the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas joined with journalism departments at universities across the state to launch the Light of Day project.

Each year, students at participating schools work on stories concerning the same agreed-upon theme.

FOIFT provided legal and logistical support, as the students and faculty employed state and federal freedom of information laws to explore various angles. Their stories, included below, have shed much light on the inconsistent practices and under-reporting of crime by campus police, prompting investigations, policy changes and awards for the participating student journalists.

Awards & Results

Student journalists from the University of North Texas (studying under Dan Malone) and Southern Methodist University (under Dr. Craig Flournoy) won a number of national awards for their work on the Light of Day project:
