Dear Campus Community, 

When Howard and Connie Clery advocated for transparency on college campuses after the loss of their daughter, Jeanne, in 1986, they did so to prevent other families from experiencing similar grief and pain. Through their tireless advocacy at the local, state and national levels, the Clery family called for campuses across the United States to publically disclose crime statistics and various campus safety policies and procedures.
