Campus Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Clery Act) and Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act 2008

September 27, 2013

Re: “Clery Act” Compliance

Dear Member of the University Community:

The Campus Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, as amended, (known as the “Clery Act”) and the Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act signed into law in 2008 require that colleges and universities publish an annual security report and an annual fire safety report, distribute the reports to all students and employees, and inform prospective students and employees about the reports. The reports contain descriptions of campus policies and programs relative to campus security and statistics concerning specific types of crimes and fire safety information.

The purpose of both acts is to inform students and employees of the incidents of crime and fire and the policies and procedures to prevent crime and fire or to report occurrences of crime or fire at institutions of higher education. The laws are also designed to encourage the development of security and fire prevention policies and procedures and to establish uniformity in reporting of crimes at all such institutions. If you become aware of an allegation of criminal activity, we encourage you to report to Campus Security Officials and the police.  CSOs are required to report allegations of criminal activity to police.

The information required by the law, as well as additional information relating to campus safety, security and fire, can be found on the UAA, UAF, and UAS web sites at the following locations:
