Campus Crime and Security

In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000. The 1998 amendment renamed the Act the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. Now generally known as the Clery Act. The Clery Act was further amended in 2008 and created additional safety and security related requirements for higher education institutions.

  6. Possession, use and sale of alcohol and drugs;
  7. Procedures for emergency notification and evacuation procedures;
