The Clery Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information about crime on and near their campuses. This law is named after Jeanne Clery, a college student who was murdered in her dorm room in 1986, and is also known as the "Campus Safety and Security Act."
As a university, Kean University is subject to the requirements of the Clery Act and is required to disclose information about crime on and near its campus. This information must be made available to all current and prospective students and employees, and must include crime statistics for the preceding three years, as well as information about campus security policies and procedures.
Under the Clery Act, Kean University is required to publish an Annual Security Report that includes crime statistics, campus safety policies, and information about programs to promote safety and security on campus. The university must also provide timely warnings to the campus community about any crimes that pose a threat to safety, and must maintain a public crime log that is accessible to the public.
In addition, Kean University must participate in the collection and submission of crime statistics to the Department of Education, which maintains a national database of crime on college and university campuses. The Clery Act helps to ensure that students and employees have access to accurate and comprehensive information about crime and safety on college and university campuses, so that they can make informed decisions about their own personal safety.
