U.S. Department of Education Releases Updated Clery Act Handbook for Colleges and Universities

Posted by Michael T. Travis | Jun 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (“Clery Act”) is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), which requires all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety, as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus.

The U.S. Department of Education recently released an updated handbook for 2016 which reflects the Department's interpretations and guidance to assist colleges and universities in understanding and meeting the various requirements of the Clery Act, as well as other related safety and security reporting laws.

The updated handbook is available from the U.S. Department of Education website by following this link.
