The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, known as the Clery Act, is the federal law requiring colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.
The law is tied to an institution's participation in federal student financial aid programs and it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. The Act, enforced by the United States Department of Education, is named in memory of Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman who was raped and murdered in her residence hall in 1986.
