Clery Act

Clery Compliance

Safety at Green River College campuses are a concern for all members of the community including students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The college mission can only be carried out in an environment where each person feels safe. Recognizing this Green River leadership has made safety a top priority.

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act of 1998, the college reports the mandated information about current campus policies concerning safety and security issues, and the required statistics.

Most current policies and geographies updated August 2016.

Daily Logs

Daily Incident and Crime Logs are kept separately for each of the four Green River College campus locations. Since the Main Campus is the only one that has residential housing, it is the only log that also contains a fire log. If no log is listed, there have been no reports in the past 60 days.

Update: Findings of Clery Investigation

December 15, 2017

Dear Green River College Community:

As I announced in October, the Department of Education provided a preliminary Program Review Report of the Green River College’s compliance with the Clery Act from 2008 to 2014. The College's response to this report was submitted to the Department of Education prior to the required deadline and provided to the Board of Trustees at their December meeting.

Although Green River College was not in full compliance with its obligations under the Clery Act from 2009 to 2014, the College has worked diligently to address the shortcomings. The safety of our Green River community is a priority.

The College is currently waiting for information from the Department of Education regarding their final report and any fines associated with the findings. I will continue to share updates as we receive them.

Updated Information

October 19, 2017

As many of you know, on November 16, 2015, the U.S. Department of Education formally initiated an on-site program review to evaluate Green River College’s compliance with the Clery Act and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA). Passed in 1990, the Clery Act is a federal consumer protection law that mandates the reporting of campus crime statistics and dictates the manner in which those statistics are reported to the public.

Below you will find the Preliminary Campus Crime Program Review Report from the Department of Education, as well as the email sent to the Green River College community, regarding the findings in the report.
