About Us 

Our mission: Working together with college and university communities to create safer campuses. When institutions of higher education seek guidance on campus safety regulation, they turn to Clery Center. 

We are a national nonprofit dedicated to helping college and university officials meet the standards of the Jeanne Clery Act. By equipping professionals with the training and resources they need to understand compliance requirements, we strive to make campus safety a universal reality.
