The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act
Following the 1986 tragic assault and murder of a young woman named Jeanne Clery at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, her parents organized and lobbied to establish standards for crime reporting on all college campuses in the nation. The result of their effort was the passage of the Student-Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act in 1990. In 1998 the act was amended and renamed the Jeanne Clery Act.
Each UW Colleges Campus Annual Security Report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the campus and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters.
