Campus Safety

Safeguarding the security of students is a paramount concern of federal, state, and local governments, as well as the institutions that enroll these students. Section 485(f) of Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 contains statutory requirements related to campus crime and security, known collectively as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act). A federal mandate requiring all institutions of higher education that participate in the federal student financial aid program to disclose information about crime on their campuses and in the surrounding communities, the Clery Act is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education.
