The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act is a federal law signed in 1990 that requires institutions of higher education to disclose information regarding campus security. The Clery Act, which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965, is viewed as a consumer protection law, which seeks to provide transparency around crime, policy, and statistics on campus. The Clery Act also requires that institutions of higher education that receive federal funding report crimes that occur on or near campus and implement school safety policies. Training is a central component of Clery Act compliance for the majority of institutions across the United States, specifically for those who have a reporting responsibility under the law. CITI Program’s Clery Act Training is available to meet institutional needs.
