The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC 1092(f) is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The law is tied to an institution's participation in federal student aid programs and it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. The Act is enforced by the United States department of Education.
The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights, and was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery. Subsequent amendments also added a provision to protect crime victims, "whistleblowers", and others from retaliation.
