Campus Security (Clery) Act

Safety is a community issue. That’s why Public Safety works together in partnership with students, faculty, and staff to make this community a safer place to live, work, and learn. 

How We Meet Campus Safety Notification Requirements

Each year, in compliance with federal law, Public Safety publishes a complete report on safety and security policies, along with the type of crime on campus.

In this report, you will find campus crime statistics for the last three years, as well as safety related policies. We also maintain a daily crime log that is available to the public for viewing.

Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act

This information is prepared in accordance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act enacted by Congress in 1990. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000, and 2008. In 1998, the law was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and the Campus Crime Statistics Act. 

The Clery Act, as it is commonly referred to, requires all institutions of higher education to give timely warnings of crimes that represent a threat to the safety of students or employees, and to make public their campus security policies. 

It also requires that crime data is collected, reported, and disseminated to the campus community, and is also submitted to the U.S. Department of Higher Education. The act is intended to provide accurate, complete, and timely information about safety on campus so people may make informed decisions.
