Campus safety only starts with Clery Act compliance, so we work with educators and legislators every day on new initiatives to build the kinds of communities college students and employees deserve.
National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM)
With unanimous congressional support in 2008, September became National Campus Safety Awareness Month. Today, Clery Center continues to partner with institutions of higher education to develop educational resources, create professional development opportunities, plan events, and spread the word about the positive power of a safe campus environment.
Campus Fire Safety Awareness
We have partnered with the Michael H. Minger Foundation, Campus Firewatch, Rowan University, University of Pennsylvania, and the Philadelphia Fire Department to create The Alarming Truth, a short film on the importance of fire prevention and safety for college students, especially those living off campus.
“We Don’t Haze” Project
Despite increasing awareness, hazing victimization continues to be an issue at both the high school and college levels. In this 17-minute documentary, victims share personal stories about their experiences with hazing. Viewers will learn what hazing entails, why it is problematic, and how they can accomplish unity and team-building goals with positive, powerful alternatives to hazing.
OVW Campus Grant Program
The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women created the Campus Grant Program, which helps fund the development of campus programs to prevent violent crimes against women. This initiative also designates technical assistance providers to act as subject matter experts in support of these programs. Clery Center is proud to serve as the technical assistance provider for Clery Act compliance, and consults with campus grantees to implement these important programs.
