Clery Act/Crime Awareness

Campus Security Act of 1990

The Clery Report is available online and as a paper copy upon request from the Security Department. It includes the Campus Security Crimes Statistics and Clery Report, which also includes the residence halls Fire Report.

This information is furnished to you as part of the LC State commitment to safety and security on campus and is in compliance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.

We prepare this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Clery Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.

The act is named in memory of Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old female freshman attending Lehigh University in Bethlahem, Pennsylvania who was assaulted and murdered in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986.

This report is prepared in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, Residence Life, Judicial Affairs in conjunction with Student Life, Athletics Department, and other Campus Security Authorities. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the act.

This also includes the Fire Report which is mandated for all institutions with residence halls. The report details the fire systems, training, drills, planned updates, and any reported fires.

Reporting a Crime

The Clery Act requires institutions of higher education to collect, count, and classify reports of crimes from four general categories:

  • Criminal Offenses
  • Hate Crimes
  • VAWA Offenses
  • Arrests
  • Referrals for Disciplinary Action
