Who Was Jeanne Clery?

Jeanne Clery was a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman who was raped and murdered in her dorm room on April 5, 1986. Her parents later found out about 38 violent crimes on the Lehigh campus in the three years before her murder. They joined with other victims of campus crime and persuaded Congress to enact this law, which was originally known as the “Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.”

The Clery Act

In 1990, the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) was amended to include the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Title II of Public Law 101- 542). This amendment required all postsecondary institutions participating in Title IV student financial aid programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. In 1998, the act was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. This act is more commonly known as the “Clery Act”. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to:
      Collect, classify and count crime reports and statistics
      Issue campus alerts
      Publish an annual security report
      Submit crime statistics to the Department of Education
      Maintain a daily crime log
      Disclose missing student notification procedures
      Provide fire safety information (campus housing)
