Institutional Membership

Clery Center's Institutional Membership connects campus safety professionals with ready-to-use materials, resources, and strategies to help guide them through understanding and implementing the provisions of the Clery Act. We not only guide institutions in implementation, but to exemplify the spirit of the law with a proactive commitment to campus safety.

With Clery Center Membership colleges and universities receive unparalleled support in the form of:

Resources & Networking
*Please note that if your ASR has multiple campuses, even if the information is centralized into a single ASR, the review will be for the Member campus only (typically the main campus). Members may still submit an ASR that includes information on other separate campuses if that's the way it is designed, but feedback in the report will only be for the Member campus. If you want Member benefits to be specific to a separate campus, please make sure to name that campus as the member in the application.
