Jeanne Clery Act - Center for Changing Our Campus Culture

Jeanne Clery Act

Clery Center for Security on Campus

The Clery Center for Security On Campus is a national nonprofit organization that works with college and university communities to create safer campuses. As a technical assistance provider for the Office on Violence Against Women Clery supports campuses in:

  • Understanding their required action based on the Clery Act and additional regulations
  • Connecting Clery obligations to other regulatory guidance and best practice models
  • How to achieve compliance using collaboration and student centered approaches.

In 2013 the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act expanded the Clery Act to include additional rights for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. On October 20, 2014, the final regulations for the Violence Against Women Act amendments to the Clery Act were published by the Department of Education. 

For this webinar, the Clery Center and a representative from the Department of Education’s Clery Act Compliance Division (Clery Division) discussed the following topics: 

  • The updated requirements and timeline for implementation 
  • Key changes to the law and frequently asked questions
  • Resources, best practices, and “action items” for colleges and universities

This project is supported by Grant No. 2009-TA-AX-K066 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice. Points of view in this document are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the official position or policies of the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Clery Center developed the Jeanne Clery Act Self-Assessment Tool for Campus Multidisciplinary Teams in 2013. The full-version digital tool, revised in 2015 to include provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Amendments to the Clery Act, is available exclusively to members of the Clery Center’s Collaborative Program. More information about this comprehensive tool can be found on the Clery Center’s website.
