About the Jeanne Clery Act Self-Assessment Survey

The Clery Center developed the Jeanne Clery Act Self-Assessment Tool for Campus Multidisciplinary Teams in 2013. The full-version digital tool, revised in 2015 to include provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Amendments to the Clery Act, is available exclusively to members of the Clery Center's Collaborative Program. More information about this comprehensive tool can be found on the Clery Center's website here.

In partnership with the U.S. Department of Education’s Clery Act Compliance Division and the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, the Clery Center is pleased to share a new, open-source version of the Tool that helps all campuses evaluate their systems and processes related to Clery Act compliance, including policies and protocols, victim assistance, record-keeping, and more. 

This open-source Jeanne Clery Act Self-Assessment Survey is divided into the following key areas: 

  • CRIME STATISTICS (Collecting Crime Statistics from CSAs & Law Enforcement, Reporting Statistics in the Annual Security Report)
  • CRIME LOG & CAMPUS ALERTS (Daily Crime Log, Emergency Notifications & Timely Warnings)
  • RIGHTS & OPTIONS FOR SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT, DATING VIOLENCE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & STALKING (Awareness & Prevention Programs, Reporting Options & Disciplinary Procedures)
Each section includes basic questions that invite participants to evaluate key areas of compliance through a self-rating system. 

This is an anonymous survey. Non-identifiable data will be sent to the Clery Center in order to analyze trends and identify needed resources.

The Clery Center would like to thank the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, for their support of this project.

If you have any questions or need assistance while using this Survey, please contact the Clery Center's staff at (484) 580-8754 or
