Clery Act Compliance

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, commonly known as The Clery Act, is a federal consumer protection law passed in 1990. The Clery Act was passed after, Jeanne Clery, then a 19 year old college student, was raped and murdered in her residence hall after a male student obtained access to the hall via an unsecured door.

The Clery Act requires institutions of higher education that receive federal student aid funds, including NC State, to prepare, disclose and publish campus crime statistics, security policies and safety information to students, faculty, staff and visitors.
