Liberty University fined $14 million for violating campus safety law

The Education Department will impose a record $14 million fine on Liberty University, department officials announced Tuesday, for violations of federal law on campus safety.

Liberty must also spend $2 million on campus safety improvements — in addition to the money it has already budgeted for Clery operations — during a two-year post-review monitoring period, the department said.

“Students, faculty, and staff deserve to know that they can be safe and secure in their school communities. We respond aggressively to complaints about campus safety and security,” said Rich Cordray, the chief operating officer of the Federal Student Aid Office of the Education Department. “Through the Clery Act schools are obligated to take action that creates safe and secure campus communities, investigate complaints, and responsibly disclose information about crimes and other safety concerns. We will continue to hold schools accountable if they fail to do so.”
