The Clery Act was first enacted in 1990 and amended in 1992, 1998, 2000, 2008 and recently in 2013 with the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
It requires institutions of higher education that accept federal funds through Title IV of the Higher Education Act to track and report crime statistics and to make these numbers available to the public.

Clery requires crime
from MSU about certain crimes committed by
individual within our Clery
! The crime
have to be committed by a student, faculty or staff member. You may not even have an alleged or suspect, e.g., arson, burglary, etc.
But it MUST have been seen or reported to you while on shift, not simply overheard.*
ALL Title IX violations involving students and University employees no matter where or when it occurs
, but only some Title IX violations and crimes are
counted for Clery
. And, again, for Clery purposes, it must have been reported to you...not just something you overheard.
Conduct Code violations
may or may not be Clery countable, but as long as you're reporting those to an RA/RD, you're covering potential Clery statistics.
However, if someone reports a crime to you- refer to the list online- committed within our campus geography, you must report it.
Ensure your narrative is:
Includes specific details regarding observed behaviors i.e., "student x was holding a beer";
Lacks conclusive statements (i.e. “student appeared drunk”);
And addresses any observations pertaining to individuals documented in the report that will assist the Resident Director/DOS in applying appropriate charges, and classifying Clery, especially in cases involving liquor, drug, and weapons offenses.
