Clery Act Summary

Schools must publish an annual report disclosing campus security policies and three years’ worth of selected crime statistics. Schools must make timely warnings to the campus community about crimes that pose an ongoing threat to students and employees. Each institution with a police or security department must have a public crime log.

The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) centrally collects and disseminates the crime statistics. Campus sexual assault victims are assured of certain basic rights. Schools that fail to comply can be fined by the DOE.
