The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act)
The Clery Act was signed into law in 1990. The law requires institutions that participate in the federal student financial aid programs to prepare and distribute an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASFSR) annually. The ASFSR must include crime statistics for the past three years, campus policies about safety and security, campus crime prevention programs, law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, and procedures to be followed in the investigation and prosecution of alleged sex offenses. To be in full compliance institutions must provide students and employees with timely warnings or emergency notifications of crimes that represent a threat to the campus community, keep and make available a log of crimes and fires reported to the University Police Department for the past 60 days, disclose the missing student notification procedures that pertain to students residing in on-campus student housing, and disclose fire safety information and fire statistics for the three previous calendar years for on-campus student housing facilities. In addition, the ASFSR addresses the Violence Against Women Act amendments to the Clery Act which include the rights afforded to campus survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
The Texas State Annual Security Report section applies to both the San Marcos and Round Rock campuses, and the Fire Safety Report section applies only to the San Marcos Campus as Round Rock does not have on-campus student housing facilities.
The Texas State ASFSR is available on the Clery Act Compliance website at www.clery.txstate.edu/report. You may request a paper copy of the ASFSR by contacting Institutional Compliance and Ethics at Elliot Hall A (201 Talbot Street, San Marcos, TX 78666) or at (512)245-4961.
