Timely Notices

The Clery Act requires institutions to issue a timely warning when a Clery crime, occurring within Clery geography, poses a serious or ongoing threat to the campus community. The Department of Education emphasizes the importance of making determinations for issuing timely warnings on a case-by-case basis using policies pre-established by the institution that align with Clery requirements.

Under the Clery Act, colleges and universities use timely warnings and emergency notifications to inform the campus community of potential threats against which they can take preventive measures. These ongoing disclosure requirements, when implemented, can help to create and promote a safe campus environment.

Depending on the event, Emergency Notifications will be sent out via email and text message, and/or Timely Warning Notices will be posted in resident halls and on the entrance and exit to academic buildings.
