House bill requires campuses to report student accidents

A bipartisan House bill introduced last month would make it mandatory for higher education institutions to report any campus accidents resulting in major student injuries or fatalities.

The College Operational Reporting of Emergencies Involving Teens and Young Adults Safety Act of 2022, also known as the COREY Safety Act, is named in honor of Corey Hausman, a college freshman who passed away on September 12, 2018 after falling off his skateboard on campus.

Democratic representatives Joe Courtney and Jim Himes from Connecticut are the bill’s sponsors.

The COREY Act seeks to expand on the CLERY Act, which requires colleges to submit information on substance abuse, sexual assault, and hate crimes.
