Crime Awareness and Clery Act

Clery Act, Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990

Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics in compliance with U.S. Office of Education was signed into law November 1990. The U.S. Office of Education is committed to ensuring that post-secondary institutions are in full compliance with this act, and that enforcement of the act remains a priority. This act requires institutions participating in student financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. The act requires higher education institutions to give timely warnings of crimes that represent a threat to the safety of the campus community, and make public their campus security policies. To be in compliance each institution must meet three main obligations: policy disclosure, records collection and retention, and information dissemination.
