Clery Act Compliance 

The Report of the Special Investigative Counsel Regarding the Actions of The Pennsylvania State University Related to Child Sexual Abuse (The Freeh Report) has recently increased scrutiny of compliance by higher education institution with the Clery Act, including scrutiny in Tennessee.

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to keep records and report annually on crimes on campus. It also prescribes a number of security related protocols for emergency response procedures, timely notifications for on-campus crimes, etc. The requirements of the Clery Act are complex and require significant policy development, training, and campus coordination. The links below provide information and a checklist to help ensure that institutional Clery Act policies are complete and in place, and that institutional staff are trained in policy compliance.
