The Clery Act is a consumer protection law that aims to provide transparency around campus crime policy and statistics. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to disseminate a public annual security report (ASR) to employees and students every October 1st. This ASR must include statistics of campus crime for the preceding 3 calendar years, plus details about efforts taken to improve campus safety.
ASRs must also include policy statements regarding (but not limited to) crime reporting, campus facility security and access, law enforcement authority, incidence of alcohol and drug use, and the prevention of/response to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, and stalking.
A summary of crime rates are included in the Student Handbook along with information regarding sexual harassment and medical facilities. The Catalog contains the policies on sexual harassment and sexual assault including personnel to be notified and resources for help, treatment and counseling.
