As part of the federal Jeanne Clery Act, qualifying incidents reported to various sources, including Campus Security Authorities (CSA), are required to be published in an Annual Security Report and made available to the campus community each fall. One purpose of the Clery Act is to encourage the reporting and collection of accurate campus crime statistics to promote crime awareness and enhance campus safety. The list below includes Clery Act reportable crimes.
Under the Clery Act, UIS is required to:
- Disseminate an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report to employees and students by every October 1st containing the last 3 years of crime and fire statistics, and safety and security policies, procedures, and programs;
- Identify mandatory crime reporters, called Campus Security Authorities or CSAs;
- Provide alerts to the campus community when there are imminent, serious or continuing threats to the health and safety of students or employees (UIS ALERTs and [URGENT] Public Safety Advisory emails);
- Make available a daily crime and fire log for public viewing; and
- Provide rights and options to survivors of Violence Against Women Act offenses (dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking)
The Clery Act is named in honor of Jeanne Clery, a college freshman of Lehigh University in Pennsylvania who was assaulted and murdered in her campus dorm room in 1986. After her death, Jeanne’s parents advocated for federal legislation to make colleges and universities safer, resulting in the enactment of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or Clery Act. The Act is a federal consumer protection law that aims to provide transparency around campus crime policy and statistics.
The Act requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to disseminate a public annual report to employees and students every October 1st. The report must include statistics of campus crime for the preceding 3 calendar years, plus details about efforts taken to improve campus safety. Colleges and universities that have on-campus student housing facilities must also disseminate fire safety policies and statistics for their on-campus student housing facilities. UIC complies with the Clery Act by annually publishing the UIC Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASFSR). The ASFSR also includes policy statements regarding crime reporting, campus facility security and access, law enforcement authority, incidence of alcohol and drug use, and the prevention of/response to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, and stalking.
