What is the Clery Act?
Signed into law in 1990, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information about campus crime activity and security policies in an annual report. The Clery Act also requires that campuses make “timely warnings” to campus community members about specific types of criminal activity when an ongoing threat to persons is believed to exist. The report is to be made available to all current students and employees while prospective students and employees are to be notified of its existence and afforded an opportunity to request a copy.
Information disseminated in accord with Clery Act guidelines serves to inform the personal safety and college selection decisions of current and prospective campus community members. All post-secondary public and private institutions participating in federal student aid programs must adhere to Clery regulations.
The Clery Act requires institutions to disclose three general categories of crime statistics:
Types of Offenses
- Criminal Homicide, including:
- Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter
- Negligent Manslaughter
- Sex Offenses, including:
- Aggravated Assault
- Motor Vehicle Theft
- Hate Crimes:
- Any of the above-mentioned offenses
- Simple Assault
- Vandalism of Property
- Arrests and Referrals for Disciplinary Action for:
- Illegal weapons possession
- Violation of drug and liquor laws
The Clery Act was championed by Howard & Connie Clery after their daughter, Jeanne, was murdered at Lehigh University in 1986.
If anyone should know of or see a violation of University policy taking place, please report it to Campus Administration or the Office of Student Experience immediately. Incident Report forms are available from any Office of Student Experience or by downloading a pdf of the incident report form. Criminal offenses should be reported to the local police immediately, as well as to the Director of Facility Management.
