Clery Act Reporting

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information about campus crime activity and security policies in an annual report.

The Clery Act also requires that campuses make “timely warnings” to campus community members about specific types of criminal activity when an ongoing threat to persons is believed to exist.

Information disseminated in accordance with Clery Act requirements serves to inform the personal safety and college selection decisions of current and prospective campus community members. All post-secondary public and private institutions participating in federal student aid programs must adhere to Clery regulations.
