Safety Reports & Statistics


The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act, signed in 1990, is a federal statute requiring all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus. This information is made publicly accessible through the university's annual security report. Public crime and safety information can help with informed decisions when it comes to choosing institutions to pursue further higher education.

The Clery Act applies to certain crimes (see Clery Act Crime Categories) occurring on University property reported to the police and/or university faculty or staff known as Campus Security Authorities (CSA). CSA’s are mandated crime reporters per the Clery Act. Crime statistics are then compiled and reported under the university's Annual Campus Crime and Fire Safety report.
