Washburn University is committed to maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for the campus community. In 1998, the federal government passed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, formerly the Student Right to Know Act of 1990. (Clery Act) This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to disclose the reported instances of certain categories of criminal activity on their campuses. As part of our ongoing commitment to public safety Washburn University maintains compliance with the Clery Act.
