Clery Act

About the Jeanne Clery Act 

The Clery Act is a consumer protection law geared toward providing transparency about campus crime statistics and campus safety policies. Among other things, the Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal student aid programs to disclose information about specific campus policies, and to publish crime statistics reported to Campus Security Authorities that occur on specific campus geography.

Signed in 1990, the Jeanne Clery Disclosures of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (or Clery Act) is monitored by the United States Department of Education. The law is named after Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old university student who was murdered in her residence hall in 1986, sparking an outcry over unreported crime on campuses across the U.S.

We hope this creates a more transparent culture, fostering trust of prospective families and ensuring an environment that encourages students' academic and emotional security. For more information on the Clery Act and resources, please click here
