The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, more commonly known as the Clery Act, is contained in section 485 of the Higher Education Act, codified at 20 U.S.C.S 1092. It requires all post-secondary education institutions to maintain records and report annually on the nature, date, time, and place of crimes occurring on campus, including hate crimes. It also prescribes a number of security related protocols for emergency response procedures, timely notifications for on-campus crimes, etc. The act is intended to provide students and their families, as higher education consumers, with accurate, complete, and timely information about safety on campus so that they can make informed decisions.
Preparation of the Annual Security Report
The Specs Howard School of Media Arts prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. This report is prepared annually in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies surrounding the campus. Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to designated school officials (including but not limited to the President), as well as local law enforcement agencies. Campus crime data is gathered the same day that it is reported. The resulting data is used to prepare the annual crime statistics report. Also included in this report is Specs Howard School of Media Arts Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program. Both the Annual Security Report and Drug and Alcohol and Abuse Prevention Program are available by clicking:
Copies of the Annual Security Report & Emergency Policies and Procedures, Crime Statistics and Disclosure of Consumer Information are available at the front desk of the school for current students, potential students, staff and members of the community.
