Penn State Maintains Confidentiality of Internal Clery Report

Penn State received its first internal report last week on the findings of an investigation launched by the U.S. Department of Education into Penn State’s Clery Act compliance. Due to federal regulations, the university is prohibited from publicly releasing the details disclosed in the report until the entire review process is completed.

The USDE addressed then-president Graham Spanier in a letter dated November 9th, 2011, that it would launch an investigation into Penn State’s campus safety policies following the news of the Sandusky scandal. Since November 28 of that same year, Penn State has provided the necessary documentation, records, and interviews requested by the Department of Education. In March 2012, Penn State hired Gabriel Gates as the full-time Clery Compliance Manager to facilitate the process of the review.

Following the 1986 rape and murder of 19-year-old Lehigh University student Jeanne Clery, the Clery Act requires higher education institutions to disclose information on criminal acts throughout campuses, including but not limited to sexual assault, murder, and hate crimes. Clery Act investigations that began before Oct. 2, 2012 carry a $27,500 fine per violation, according to Campus Safety Magazine.

Further information of Penn State’s compliance with the Clery Act will be publicized as the investigation is finalized.

You’re Not Embarrassing, You’re Just Fun: Yuka Narisako’s Senior Column

I’ve spent the last five years at Penn State, not because I failed a handful of classes, but because I chose my major somewhat blindly not realizing it was a five year program until after I submitted my application. Five years later, I’m about to get a bachelor’s, a master’s, and a minor over the course of one weekend.
