In the early morning of April 5, 1986, Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old freshman at Lehigh University was sexually assaulted and murdered in her dormitory room. The subject responsible was a Lehigh student unknown to her. He entered the building by proceeding, unopposed, through three propped-open doors, and made it to her room, even though such a disaster was preventable had each of the doors been locked.
The aftermath of this crime became a learning experience for her parents that changed their lives. They began efforts to enact laws requiring colleges and universities nationwide to make available complete information about violent campus crimes, drug and alcohol offenses and to provide information about current security procedures.
In 1990, President George Bush signed the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, which has become the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
