ITHACA, N.Y. As of Oct. 28, officials at colleges and universities across the nation face new regulations concerning convicted sex offenders on campus.

According to a U.S. Department of Education release, the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, which became effective last month, aims to insure that students, faculty and staff receive notice about sex offenders who work or study on campus.

Public Information

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, originally passed in October of 2000, amends the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act, making it clear that records of sex offenses can be made public.

The law also extends the Cleary Act, mandating that information on sex offenders be added to the crime statistics released by campus police departments annually.

The methods of compliance with this new law differ among individual schools.
