As an advisor to a student organization, there are times you work closely with the students and students may share personal or private information with you. The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) encourages advisors to build trusting relationships with students, where students feel comfortable to seek support from the advisor. However, there may be times where students share information that causes concern or you feel you may need to share with the university. CSI wants you to know that there are resources available to you when you think you need to report what you hear.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus. This information is shared through the campus’s annual report, as well as through “emergency notifications” and “timely warnings” for certain incidents involving an immediate or ongoing threat to the campus community.
Information disseminated in accord with Clery Act guidelines serves to inform the personal safety and college selection decisions of current and prospective campus community members. All post-secondary public and private institutions participating in federal student aid programs must adhere to Clery regulations.
