Pacific College prepares this report annually to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act.
In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Title II of Public Law 101-542), which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA). This act required all postsecondary institutions participating in HEA’s Title IV student financial assistance programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000 and 2008. The 1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act in memory of a student who was slain in her dorm room in 1986. It is generally referred to as the Clery Act and is in section 485(f) of the HEA.
The report is available for download below. Enrolled students and current personnel will receive an e-mail notification annually on or before October 1st when the updated report has been made available on the website. Print copies of the report may be obtained, free of charge, by request at the Service Desk of the main campus.
