Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act (Clery Act)

The University is in compliance with the federal Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act which requires colleges to disclose graduation rates for students and to make available certain statistics and campus security policies. According to the requirements, data in these areas were tabulated beginning July 1, 1991, and reported during the summer of 1992 and each summer thereafter. It is the University’s policy to provide information concerning security services available on campus. The University also practices the policy of notifying the University community as soon as possible after the commission of any crime that might portend personal danger to either students or employees. Campus crime statistics are available from the University’s Department of Public Safety. Also, Student Administrative Services makes available data on graduation rates, athletic participation rates, and financial support.

Pursuant to the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, any member of the Western New England University community may obtain information provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as to any registered sex offender who may be enrolled or working at the University by contacting the Department of Public Safety.
