What is the Campus SaVE Act?

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act was passed in March 2013 as part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA). The Campus SaVE Act amends the Clery Act, which requires higher education institutions to report crime statistics and disclose security-related information in the following ways:

  • It adds offenses involving domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking to the crimes that institutions must report and include in their annual security reports (ASR).
  • It expands the categories of reportable “hate crimes” to include those based on bias against gender identity or national origin.
  • The policy statements filed as part of the Annual Security Report (ASR) must now include detailed descriptions of the institution’s internal procedures in cases of domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, as well as descriptions of its education and prevention programs.
