In 1990 Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act. This act requires all public or private postsecondary institutions participating in Title IV student financial aid programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000, and 2008. The act was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (shortened to the Clery Act) in 1998.
