Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Safety and Crime Statistics Act
Jeanne Clery was a college student who was brutally attacked and subsequently murdered in her college dormitory. In the aftermath, her family fought to create a system of transparency regarding the safety of campuses across the nation.
The Campus Security Act requires colleges and universities to:
- Publish an annual report by October 1 each year that contains three calendar years of campus crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements;
- Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through campus, and certain non-campus facilities and remote classrooms. The statistics must be gathered from campus security authorities, local law enforcement, and other university officials who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities;
- Provide “timely warning” notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing threat to students and employees;
- Disclose in a public crime log any crime that occurred on campus or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus security department and is reported to the security department.
The Indiana Tech Department of Safety & Security is responsible for preparing and distributing this report. We work with other departments and agencies, such as the Office of Student Affairs and the Fort Wayne Police Department, to compile the information. Regional campus statistics are gathered from the local police departments and local staff, then compiled by Safety & Security for the report.
The link below provides the full report, including statistics for individual campuses, as a downloadable PDF.
