Clery Compliance

Clery Compliance

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (The Clery Act) is part of the Higher Education Act. The goal of this federal law is to ensure that students, prospective students, parents and employees have access to accurate information about crimes committed on campuses, campus security procedures and information, as well as information about prevention programming.


The Clery Act requires institutions of higher education that receive federal financial aid (Title IV) to report statistics on specified crimes on or near college campuses and to provide other safety and crime information to members of the campus community. This information must also be reported to the federal Department of Education by October 1 of each year. The spirit of the Clery Act is transparency; schools must inform employees, students, parents, and potential students and employees of crimes that are occurring on or around university campuses so that they can make informed education and employment decisions.


Florida Gulf Coast University is committed to maintaining a safe and secure environment for the entire campus community. Through training, educational awareness, and data-driven assessment, the University will remain vigilant in creating a campus culture where everyone can safely live, work, and thrive in the FGCU academic environment. The Clery Act Compliance Officer, within the University Police Department, oversees the Clery Compliance Program for Florida Gulf Coast University. Within this webpage, you will find many resources that are informative and helpful should you need to learn about FGCU Clery Compliance regarding crime statistics, daily crime and fire log, Campus Security Authorities, or review FGCU’s Annual Security Report. When in doubt, ASK! If you have any questions regarding the Clery Act on FGCU campus, please contact the Clery Act Compliance Officer, Diania Tsenekos via email

Your responsibility as a Campus Security Authority is well-defined. It is your responsibility to report certain crimes identified by the Clery Act that are reported to you or your department and occurred on or around FGCU campuses and properties. Again, an easy formula to keep in mind is a Clery Crime + Clery Geography = a reportable Clery Crime Statistic. This reporting form is only for Campus Security Authorities for Clery Purposes, this is not to report a crime that occurs on campus. UPD no longer utilizes online reporting, please contact 239-590-1900 to report a crime that occurs on campus or on university property.
