The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy 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.
Because the law is tied to participation in federal student financial aid programs it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. It is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education.
The "Clery Act" is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Ann Clery who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986.
The University of Dallas campus crime statistics are maintained and reported by the Department of Campus Safety.
To the maximum extent possible, the University of Dallas is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment. This report is required by federal law and contains crime statistics for the school.
Three years’ worth of statistics are included in this report for certain types of crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the school and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus. Preparing the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics
The Department of Campus Safety coordinates the collection and reporting of crime statistics as specified in the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act). This report is prepared in cooperation with the Department of Campus Safety, local law enforcement agencies and the Office of Student Life. Annually, Campus Safety sends a written request to outside Campus Security Authorities requesting information about all Clery Crimes that have occurred on the University of Dallas Clery Geography that were reported to them. The University of Dallas does allow individuals to report crimes on a confidential, voluntary basis for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics.
Reports of criminal activity given to Campus Safety, Student Life and reports of crimes made to local law enforcement agencies are collected and included in the Annual Security Report as required by the Clery Act. This report is available online at http://www.udallas.edu/offices/cso. You may also request a paper copy from the Campus Safety Office.
