Safety Data and Clery Compliance

Utah State University is committed to the safety and security of our campus communities. The Clery Act (1998) is a consumer protection law that aims to provide transparency around campus crime policy and statistics. In order to comply with the Clery Act, universities must collect and submit crime reports and fire statistics, issue campus alerts, and provide an annual security report (sometimes called the Clery Report).

The Clery Act is named for Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University student who was raped and murdered in her dorm room in 1986. Her killer was another student, and her parents believe she would have been more cautious if she had known about other violent crimes at her university.

Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

Each year, we provide information regarding campus safety, security measures, and crime and fire statistics through our Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. This report is published by Oct. 1 of each year in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and Utah Code 53-B-28-401 (Campus Safety Plans and Training).   

This report provides information about the university’s policies, procedures, and programs concerning safety and security, sexual misconduct, and emergency response. The Annual Security Report also contains statistics for the three most current years of Clery-reportable crime statistics. Please visit to read USU’s report and learn more.
