The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, otherwise known as the Clery Act, is a federal law that requires institutions of higher education to provide current and prospective students and employees, the public, and the Department of Education with crime statistics and information about campus crime prevention programs and policies. Among other crimes, the Clery Act requires that colleges and universities report forcible sex offenses including sexual assault and rape. The Clery Act was most recently amended by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013.

UCFShield – Employees
At UCF there’s help for employees-whether victim, confidant, or the accused.
UCF employees are not exempt from being a victim of sexual assault. In these instances, you should be equipped with the same level of on-campus support as a student. Alternatively, if you’ve witnessed an assault, been confided in, or accused, you have responsibilities and rights too.
