Clery Act: The Basics

  • The Clery Act is a federal law that requires colleges to report crimes that occur “on campus” and school safety policies. This information is available each year in an Annual Security Report (ASR), which can be found on your school’s website. It also requires schools to send timely warnings to the school community when there are known risks to public safety on campus.

    The Clery Act contains the Campus Sexual Assault Victim’s Bill of Rights, which requires colleges to disclose educational programming, campus disciplinary process, and victim rights regarding sexual violence complaints.
