    The Student Right to Know Act and Campus Security Act was formally renamed The Jeanne Clery Act in 1998. The Clery Act has been subsequently revised, the latest revision being 2008. Aquinas College is committed to complying with all aspects of the Clery Act by annually publishing and making available all crime statistics and related information on crime. The annual Clery Report is published as the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report and is also included at the end of the student handbook. A printed copy of the report is also available to students, parents, faculty and staff in the Campus Security Office. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to report on seven basic categories of crime as follows:
  • Criminal Homicide – Murder, negligent and non-negligent manslaughter
  • Sex offenses – forcible and non-forcible
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Burglary
  • Arson
  • Motor Vehicle Theft

Additionally, the Clery Act requires colleges and universities to report on arrests and/or disciplinary referrals for liquor violations, drug law violations and illegal weapons possession, and to give accounting of Hate Crimes as reported on campus.
