1.16 Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy & Campus Crime Statistics Act

Originally known as the Campus Security Act, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC Section 1092 (f)), is the federal law that requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on or near their respective campuses. Colleges and universities must disclose the most recent three years of campus crime statistics and publish required security policies. Compliance is monitored by the United States Department of Education, which can impose civil penalties for each violation as well as suspend institutions from participating in federal Student financial aid programs.

In accordance with the Clery Act, the University annually publishes its Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (Report). The Report can be accessed on-line at the Department of Public Safety’s webpage:

Copies of the report and other information required under the Act can also be obtained during normal business hours from the Department of Public Safety, Wool Center, Room 114. The SLU Community will receive notice, no later than October 1st each year, that provides instructions on how the Report can be accessed.
