Summary of the Jeanne Clery Act

A Compliance and Reporting Overview

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, also known as the Clery Act, is a federal law that requires institutions of higher education to have in place certain security and safety policies, and to disclose certain crime statistics.These policies and statistics are published every year on October 1 in the UNT Dallas and UNT Dallas College of Law Annual Security and Fire Safety report. The Clery Act also identifies certain staff, faculty and students as “Campus Security Authorities” and requires that they forward reports of crimes to designated offices on campus. The Clery Act was amended in 2013 to expand the list of crimes tracked and to broaden the rights and resources that victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking are entitled to.  The Clery Act also requires institutions with campus police or security departments to maintain a daily crime log in an effort to provide a more “real-time” snapshot of crime on campus. 

On this website, you will find information about UNT Dallas and UNT Dallas College of Law Clery program, including resources for and about our Campus Security Authorities, selected Clery policies, and reporting, rights and resource information for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

The Clery Act was named for Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old student who was raped and murdered in her dorm room when she was a freshman at Lehigh University in 1986.
