Jeanne Clery

1 Substantive Credit (PA). $59. In 1998, Congress amended the Crime Awareness and Campus Safety Security Act and renamed it The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act), in memory of Jeanne Clery, who was murdered in her university dormitory room. In 2013, Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which included additional amendments to the Clery Act. The Clery Act requires all postsecondary institutions that receive student financial aid assistance to disclose campus crime statistics and other security information to students and the public. The VAWA amendments added requirements that institutions disclose statistics, policies and programs related to dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The Act also requires institutions to develop and implement specific campus safety and crime prevention policies and procedures, including campus alerts and timely warnings, educational and prevention programs, and fire safety programs. This CLE will provide a basic overview of the Clery Act and the responsibilities of postsecondary institutions. Presenter Sheilah Vance, Esq., is Chair of the Board of the Clery Center, which provides services and information to educational institutions to meet their Clery Act responsibilities. All proceeds from this CLE will be donated to the Clery Center. For more information and to register for the CLE, click on the Distance Education Courses page or
