Abstract: In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act which required all postsecondary institutions participating in Title IV student financial aid programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. Amendments in 1998 renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or the Clery Act in honor of a student murdered in her dorm room in 1986. This handbook is a compilation of current U.S. Department of Education guidelines. The handbook guides readers through the process of compliance step-by-step. It explains the why, what, who, when and how of Clery compliance. Specifically, the handbook (1) provides a detailed discussion of Clery Act compliance, (2) provides clear, step-by-stop instructions for those with little or no experience complying with the Clery Act requirements, (3) provides information for experienced individuals or offices to assist in satisfying compliance requirements, (4) provides detailed discussions about how the regulations apply to certain situations, and (5) provides examples of how to classify and count Clery Act crimes. The handbook is divided into four sections: (1) an overview of Clery Act compliance; (2) crime data; (3) ongoing disclosure requirements; and (4) annual disclosure requirements.
