Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act

This page provides information regarding our compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

The "Clery Bill" (H.R.3344, S.1925, S.1930) was introduced in Congress on September 6, 1989, and was signed into law on November 8, 1990 by President George H.W. Bush as Title 2 of the "Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act." The bill was named for Jeanne Clery who was raped and murdered in her dorm room at Lehigh University in 1986.

It took effect September 1, 1991 and the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) was charged with enforcing the law. The law required all institutions of higher education to release campus crime statistics and security policies to their current and prospective students or employees. Congress enacted this law, which was originally known as the "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990."

The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights. Amendments in 1998 added new categories to the crime statistics, an obligation to report statistics for public property in and immediately adjacent to the campus, a geographic breakdown of statistics, and a daily public crime log for schools with a police or security department. The law was also amended to require the DOE to centrally collect the crime statistics and make them publicly available. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery.
