Clery Act: Requirements and Legal Issues [July 31, 2019]   [open pdf - 395KB]

From the Document: "Colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher education (IHEs) face several federal legal requirements that pertain to the safety and security of students. One statute that addresses such issues is the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act). The Clery Act applies to all domestic IHEs that participate in Title IV of the Higher Education Act's student financial assistance programs. The Clery Act requires covered IHEs to publish a report (by October 1 of each year) disclosing campus crime statistics and campus security policies. The Department of Education (ED) has promulgated regulations implementing the Clery Act. ED's Office of Federal Student Aid conducts reviews to evaluate compliance with the statute and imposes fines on institutions for noncompliance."
