Clery Act Compliance


The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, commonly referred to as the “Clery Act,” is a federal law that requires each university receiving federal financial aid to annually compile and report specific crime and fire statistics for the university campus and to provide other safety and crime information to members of the campus community.  The Clery Act also requires universities to:

  • Have emergency response programs, including evacuation procedures for students. 
  • Notify the community of emergencies and issue warnings of threats.
  • Maintain a daily crime log and a fire log.
  • Have policies and procedures relating to sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. 

The Office of the President has online resources about the Clery Act including operational requirements and crime reporting.
