In 1990, Congress approved the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act. Later renamed the Jeanne Clery Act, in memory of a 19-year old student who was raped and murdered in her dorm room. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
The law also ensures certain basic rights for victims of campus sexual assaults and requires the U.S. Department of Education to collect and disseminates campus crime statistics.new set of amendments, including updated emergency response and warning procedures and hate crime reporting standards were added to the Clery Act in 2008.
In 2013, the Violence Against Women Act amended the Clery Act to require institutions to also compile statistics of incidents of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
