Jeanne Clery Act
The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act was signed into law in November 1990. Title II of this act was known as the Crime Awareness and Security Act. It requires institutions participating in the student financial aid program under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures and to provide statistics concerning certain crimes that occur on campus. It was amended and renamed the Jeanne Clery Act in October 1998. In compliance with the act, the Office of Public Safety publishes and distributes this information by October 1 of each year.
Babson College’s annual security report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes and violations of College policy that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings owned or controlled by Babson College, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. All College departments that are identified as mandated reporters, together with local municipal police departments, are surveyed annually by the Office of Public Safety for reportable crimes. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters.
