Abstract/ Summary

This report provides information regarding our 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 September 6, 1989, and was signed into law on November 8, 1990 by President George Bush as Title 2 of the "Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act." The bill was named for Jeanne Clery who was raped and murdered in her dorm room at Lehigh University in 1986. It took effect September 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.
