CLERY COMPLIANCE AND SAFETY
Welcome to the downtown Denver Auraria Campus, home to the Community College of Denver (CCD), Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) and the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver) serving over 43,000 students.
Choosing a postsecondary institution is a major decision for students and their families. Along with academic, financial, and geographic considerations, the issue of campus safety is a vital concern. In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act (Title II of Public Law 101-542), which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA). This act required all postsecondary institutions participating in the Title IV student financial aid programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000, and 2008. The 1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act in memory of a student who was slain in her dorm room in 1986.
