Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act 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 law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victim 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. The law was most recently amended in 2000 to require schools beginning in 2003 to notify the campus community about where public “Megan’s Law” information about registered sex offenders on campus could be obtained.

Commitment to Safety

The college takes great pride in the community here at UTTC and has many advantages for students, faculty, and staff. UTTC is a great place to live, learn, work and study, however, this does not mean that the campus community is immune from all of the other unfortunate circumstances that arise in other communities.

The most effective thing you can do to reduce the likelihood of crime is to develop a strong sense of community with others at your family housing area, dorm, or workplace. Keep an eye on property, living, and work areas.

UTTC takes progressive measures to create and maintain a reasonably safe environment on campus. Though the college is progressive with its policies, programs, and education, it is up to each one of us to live with a sense of awareness and use reasonable judgment when living, working or visiting on campus. Please report suspicious activities to the UTTC Safety & Security Department at (701) 221-1700 or 911.
