The Clery/ Higher Education Act ( HEA) requires higher education institutions to give timely warnings of crimes that represent a threat to the safety of students or employees, and to make public their campus security policies.
It also requires that crime data be collected, reported and disseminated to the campus community and submitted to the US Department of Education annually. The act is intended to provide students and their families, as higher education consumers, with accurate, complete and timely information about safety on campus so that they can make informed decisions. The posting of these notices is one example in which Longwood University maintains compliance with the provisions of the Clery and Higher Education Acts.
