Additionally, their HSU Student Safety Escort Program provides HSU students and community members, who do not feel comfortable walking alone, with a uniformed student employee escort to walk them between campus buildings, to their vehicle, residence halls, shuttle/bus stop, or other locations on the Main Campus during hours of darkness.

HSU Clery Act Compliance

Clery Act Overview

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act for short) became federal law in 1990. It is considered a consumer protection law that focuses on transparency around campus crime policy and statistics. We hope this creates a more transparent culture, fostering trust of prospective families and ensuring an environment that encourages students’ academic and emotional security.
