  1. 1. Jeanne Clery Campus Security Policy & Crime Statistics Disclosure Act (Clery Act) The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The "Clery Act" is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Ann Clery (pictured right) who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986.
  2. 2. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private institutions of postsecondary education participating in federal student aid programs are subject to it. Violators can be "fined" by the U.S. Department of Education, the agency charged with enforcement of the Act and where complaints of alleged violations should be made, or face other enforcement action. What is the Clery Act?
  3. 3. How Does it Impact the College? The Clery Act requires that the College: • Publish and distribute an Annual Campus Security & Fire Safety Report • Inform prospective students & employees about the Annual Campus Security & Fire Safety Report • Notify the campus in a timely way of crimes that threaten safety • Support and keep up-to-date a daily log of all reported crimes

The statistics for these crimes are generated from the reports that are received by a CSA, even if there is no police investigation. Remember, a CSA includes traditional campus security, as well as other faculty and staff. Why do we need CSAs?
