Report 2012-032: California's Postsecondary Educational Institutions: Some Institutions Have Not Fully Complied With Federal Crime Reporting Requirements (Release Date: October 2012)

Recommendation #1 To: Academy of Art University

To ensure that they comply with the Clery Act by correctly reporting all applicable crimes and disclosing all required campus security policies, institutions should review and adhere to applicable guidance related to the Clery Act, including Education's Office of Postsecondary Education's (OPE) Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting (OPE handbook) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook.

60-Day Agency Response

According to the Academy, the annual security report will be updated each year. To ensure that the report includes only Clery reportable crimes as well as the campus security procedures and disclosures required by Education, reportable crimes will be based on the OPE handbook and Academy staff will stay current on new disclosure requirements by attending Clery conferences and monitoring Clery updates.
