Clery Act Compliance

The Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires universities to provide accurate and timely information about crime and campus safety to the university community as well as prospective students and their families. 

In addition to crime statistics and general security policies, institutions with residential housing facilities are also required to provide fire safety policy statements, missing student notification requirements, and fire statistic information.

The purpose of the Clery Act is to promote a safe and secure campus and help community members make informed decisions about their safety. In order to comply with the Clery Act, it is vital that we understand our responsibilities under the law.
