Jeanne Clery Act
The Jeanne Clery Act is a consumer protection law designed to improve campus safety and transparency around campus crime policy and statistics. The Clery Act requires institutions to document reported crimes and to publish an Annual Security Report. Reports must include information on the types of crimes, where and when they were committed, and to whom they were reported. The reports must also be available to the general public.
Emergency Notification System
Rivier University uses an emergency notification system powered by Rave Mobile Safety. The Rave system allows the University to send emergency notification messages to all faculty, staff, and students during a crisis, emergency, or weather closure. Students, faculty, and staff will receive messages through this emergency notification system.
