Clery Act Training and Awareness

Campus crime is an issue of mounting concern for colleges and universities across the country, and the University of California strives to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires that colleges and universities disclose policy information and crime statistics as part of a campus security report published annually by each institution. The Clery Act Training was made available in order to raise awareness about the Clery Act and the responsibilities and reporting requirements under the Act.

As of September 2014, the UC Office of the President has released an updated version of this training which includes general information on the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and information regarding international locations. If you wish to review the Clery Act Training, it is available in the UC Learning Center at
