Clery Act Compliance at Illinois
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal mandate requiring all institutions of higher education that participate in the federal student financial aid program to disclose information about crime on their campuses and in the surrounding communities.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign relies on a number of people to not only comply with the act, but also go beyond federal mandates in providing students, faculty and staff with information about public safety issues on campus.
Clery Act Requirements
Some university employees have obligations under the Clery Act. These resources are available for assistance in complying.
Campus Security Authorities
Campus Security Authorities are required to report Clery Act-qualifying crimes which occurred on campus, in public areas bordering campus and in certain non-campus buildings owned or leased by the university. Keep reading for more information on who is a CSA and how to report crime.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign relies on Clery Liaisons in all departments to comply with the Clery Act. Those Clery Liaisons are asked to identify Campus Security Authorities, buildings and property outside of the Urbana campus which may be subject to Clery regulations and student overnight trips away from campus.
For purposes of reporting statistics, the university must distinguish criminal offenses according to where they occur. The Clery Act defines specifically which areas are subject to federal mandates.
Annual Security and Fire Safety Report
Every year, the University of Illinois Police Department publishes information about crime and fire statistics and campus security policies. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report offers more information about crucial public safety issues on campus and what the university is doing.
