Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to annually disclose information about campus crime.  Each year the campus files a report with the United States Department of Education tabulating incidents of crime on campus. The current report can be accessed by visiting the Public Safety website.

This annual report lists the incidents of crime that occurred on or near campus for the previous three calendar years. Also included in the report are the numbers of arrests and disciplinary referrals.

Other topics included in the report are incidents of timely warning, emergency response and evacuation; general information about campus facilities safety and security; security awareness and crime prevention programs and sexual assault prevention and response.

Anyone may obtain a copy of the report from the UMass Worcester Department of Public Safety office on the main level of the visitor parking garage, 55 Lake Avenue North, Worcester, MA 01655.

The Campus Security Report and additional information can be found on the Public Safety web page.
