This report provides information regarding compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
The "Clery Bill" (H.R.3344, S.1925 and S.1930) was introduced in Congress on Sept. 6, 1989 and was signed into law on Nov. 8, 1990 by President George Bush as Title 2 of the "Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act." The bill was also named for Jeanne Clery who was raped and murdered in her dorm room at Lehigh University in 1986. It took effect Sept. 1,1991 and the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) was charged with enforcing the law. The law requires all institutions of higher education to release campus crime statistics and security policies to their current and prospective students and employees.
The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights. Amendments in 1998 added new categories to the crime statistics, an obligation to report statistics for public property in and immediately adjacent to the campus, a geographic breakdown of statistics, and a daily crime log for schools with police or security department. The law was also amended to require the DOE to centrally collect the crime statistics and make them publicly available. The 1998 amendments also formally names the law in memory of Jeanne Clery.
On March 7, 2014, President Obama signed a bill that reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Included in the bill was the Campus Violence Elimination Act (Campus SaVE) which amends the Clery Act and afforts additional rights to campus victims of sexual violence, dating and domestic violence, and stalking.
