The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act were signed into law in November 1999. At the time it was known as the “Student’s Right to Know and Campus Security Act.” The law requires educational institutions participating in student financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to disclose college crime statistics by October 1st of each year via the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. The report includes safety policies and procedures and provides statistics concerning certain crimes that occurred on campus for the three previous calendar years. In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, these reports also include information on the required fire safety policies and fire-related statistics. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report includes information to comply with the Campus Save Act of 2013.
The Annual Security Reports cover the Assumption University campus in Worcester and information regarding the satellite campus located in Rome Italy.
