About the Clery Act
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Statistics Act, a consumer protection law passed in 1990, requires all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to share information about campus crime policies and crime statistics on or around campus. This information is made publicly accessible through the College’s annual security report.
