While our nation’s higher education campuses are some of the safest places in our communities for employees and students, crime, violence, and destruction can occur in any setting. Campuses need to be prepared for a wide variety of safety incidents – including the possibility of an active shooter on campus.
The Clery Act
Originally known as the Campus Security Act, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.
GHS Compliance & Higher Education Institutions
Created by the United Nations, the GHS (the Globally Harmonized System of the Classification and Labeling of Chemicals) is designed to replace the diverse hazard classification systems around the world with one universal standard, which would improve knowledge of the dangers associated with hazardous chemicals.
The Campus SaVE Act
The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act requires that incidents of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking be disclosed in annual campus crime statistic reports.
Title IX (of the Education Amendments of 1972) protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
Passed in 1994 (Joe Biden-Bill Clinton), The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) has improved our nation's response to violence.
