The Clery Act

The Clery Act requires colleges to disclose information about crimes on and around campus. 

The act is tied to federal financial aid and applies to most schools, both public and private. The law requires universities to publish an annual security report, publish a public crime log and disclose crime statistics for incidents occurring within their specified region. It also makes schools publish timely warnings about Clery Act crimes. 

Crimes covered under the Clery Act include homicide, burglary, sexual violence, hate crimes and aggravated assault, among others. For more information on the Clery Act, check here.
