Clery Act and Higher Education Opportunity Act

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania enacted the College and University Security Act in 1988 (Clery Act) and the U.S. Congress enacted similar legislation in 1990. Most recently, the Higher Education Opportunity Act was enacted in 2008. These laws require all institutions of higher education within the Commonwealth to provide students and employees with information pertaining to, but not limited to crime statistics, security measures, fire statistics, fire safety measures, policies relating to missing persons, and penalties for drug use, on an annual basis. These acts also require that this information be available to prospective students and employees upon request. The entire report is available on-line at www.brynmawr.edu/safety/act73.htm.
