Clery Act Information, Reports, and Statistics

The following reporting form, reports and information are directly related to the University’s compliance with the various mandates of the Clery Act. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The "Clery Act" is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Ann Clery (pictured right) who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986. The Act is enforced by the United States Department of Education.  The University is serious about its responsibility for complying not only with requirements of the Act, but more importantly, complying with the spirit of the Act.
