Clery Act Information

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires that crime and fire safety information is made available to the campus community. Specifically, it requires schools to provide four different types of records:

  • A report of annual crime statistics
  • A daily campus crime log
  • "Timely reports" regarding crimes that present an ongoing threat to the campus community
  • An annual fire statistics report

Campus Security Authorities

Amendments to the Campus Security Act require that "campus security authorities" report crime statistics for inclusion in the University’s Annual Security Report. If you meet any of the definitions outlined below or have received notification from the president and or your supervisor, you are a "campus security authority" as that term has been defined by the U.S. Department of Education. "Campus security authorities" include, but are not limited to, officials of the University with significant responsibility for students or campus activities.

The following are defined by the Clery Act as Campus Security Authorities:

  • Campus Police Department
  • Individuals with campus security responsibility: Any individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department, such as an individual who is responsible for monitoring entrance into institutional property. Examples of this category are: parking enforcement staff, event security staff and bicycle patrol staff.
  • Individuals Designated by the Campus: Any individual or organization specified in an institution’s statement of campus security policy as one to which students and employees should report criminal offenses. Examples include: chancellor’s office, ombuds’ office and office of student life.
  • Officials with Significant Responsibility for Student and Campus Activities: An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. If such an official is a pastoral or professional counselor as defined below, the official is not considered a campus security authority when acting in those capacities. Examples of this category are: deans of students, student housing officials, students’ discipline officials, students’ judicial affairs officials, officials who oversee a student center, officials who oversee student extracurricular activities, director of athletics, team coaches and faculty advisers to student groups.
