Jeanne Clery Act

The Campus Security Act was established in 1990 to require all colleges and universities to collect and disclose information about crime on and around campus property. Subsequent amendments to the law renamed it the Clery Act and more broadly defined reporting requirements. See Carleton’s annual Clery Report.

Campus Security Authorities (CSA) are generally defined as college officials who have the authority and duty to respond to incidents on behalf of the College. The Department of Education, the federal agency responsible for enforcing the Clery Act, strongly encourages higher education institutions to train all individuals identified as Campus Security Authorities about their responsibilities under the Clery Act.

Carleton Security Services offers training of Campus Security Authorities with an online video produced by the National Clery Center.
