Since 1990, the Clery Act has guided and transformed campus safety efforts. Its evolution over the years caused campus needs to shift and change.  Today, while many institutions and professionals might be familiar with the foundation of Clery Act requirements, they still have questions about its application, particularly in relation to most recent Department of Education guidance coupled with national campus safety trends and concerns. Our Clery Today webinar series focuses on breaking down relevant, pressing concerns campus safety professionals face in implementing Clery Act requirements.

Clery Today: Campus Security Authorities

February 14, 2018 – 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

Crime prevention and response cannot happen without crime reporting and classification. While the action of reporting crimes seems straightforward, determining who is required to report may not be.  Campus security authorities (CSAs) are defined by the Clery Act but institutions often struggle with determining the roles at their institutions that fit into CSA categories.  Additionally, roles such as victim advocates and Directors of Health and Counseling Centers can have functional responsibilities that might appear, on the surface, to conflict with being a CSA.

Join us for this webinar to address the questions and challenges that arise when thinking through CSA designation holistically.  We will share how to determine your institution’s CSAs and how to best communicate the role and responsibilities of CSAs as they align with the functions of job roles.

Please submit any questions regarding CSAs you would like answered during the webinar to either Abigail Boyer at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@reyo1532034401ba1532034401 or Laura Egan at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@nage1532034401l1532034401 at least 24 hours before the start of the webinar.  We will do our best to address these questions during the webinar but might be unable to tackle all due to time constraints.

Clery Today: Clery Geography

April 16, 2018 – 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

“We just acquired property where?!” Although Clery geography definitions stay the same, the property your campus owns or controls is frequently changing. This webinar will address trends related to Clery geography identification, including:

  • How to identify new or changing Clery geography
  • Frequently asked questions on specific property types
  • How the Clery Act influences campus response to crimes against students or employees in locations you don’t own or control

Please submit any questions regarding Clery geography you would like answered during the webinar to either Abigail Boyer at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@reyo1532034401ba1532034401 or Laura Egan at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@nage1532034401l1532034401 at least 24 hours before the start of the webinar.  We will do our best to address these questions during the webinar but might be unable to tackle all due to time constraints.

Clery Today: Counting Clery Crimes

June 18, 2018 – 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

From determining what evidence demonstrates bias for a hate crime classification to understanding whether or not a violation of alcohol or drug policy is also a violation of state and local law, the nuances of Clery crime classification can be confusing or even overwhelming at times.  When coupled with adhering to separate state-specific reporting requirements, for some schools this seemingly mundane Clery Act requirement can become downright frustrating. Join us as we hash out the most helpful points to consider when making Clery crime classification determinations including:

  • Appropriately applying the Hierarchy Rule
  • Understanding the most up to date versions of all Clery crimes including VAWA crimes
  • Reviewing guidelines to consider when determining evidence of bias for classifying an incident as a hate crime under Clery
  • Recognizing the differences to consider when classifying alcohol/drug/weapons law arrests vs. referrals

Please submit any questions regarding Clery crime classification you would like answered during the webinar to either Abigail Boyer at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@reyo1532034401ba1532034401 or Laura Egan at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@nage1532034401l1532034401 at least 24 hours before the start of the webinar.  We will do our best to address these questions during the webinar but might be unable to answer all due to time constraints.

Clery Today: Ongoing Disclosures

August 20, 2018 – 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

Institutions share information on campus crime on an ongoing basis through timely warnings, emergency notification, and daily crime logs. We know decisions about what information to share and when may be a source of conflict on your campus. This webinar will address trends related to developing and updating campus policy, putting out alerts, and justifying and documenting your decisions, including:

  • When to collaborate with other individuals and departments – and when not to
  • Assessing your decision-making and documentation processes
  • Balancing confidentiality concerns with public safety concerns
  • Addressing campus feedback regarding your policies or decisions

Please submit any questions regarding ongoing disclosures you would like answered during the webinar to either Abigail Boyer at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@reyo1532034401ba1532034401 or Laura Egan at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@nage1532034401l1532034401 at least 24 hours before the start of the webinar.  We will do our best to address these questions during the webinar but might be unable to tackle all due to time constraints.

Clery Today: Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Policy

October 11, 2018 – 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

Three years ago this July, the final regulations of the Violence Against Women Act went into effect which changed the face of sexual misconduct prevention and response efforts by amending the Clery Act.  While most institutions are aware of these changes and updates many are still working on institutionalizing sustainable practices that meet these requirements.  Join us for this webinar if you are aware of the VAWA requirements but looking to gain some clarity and inspiration for fine-tuning your prevention and response efforts on campus.  We will examine some promising practices and address common questions regarding:

  • Written notification to all students and employees about on and off campus services
  • Ensuring prevention and response practices are housed within a policy
  • Creating solid lines of communication between offices/departments responsible for work in both prevention and response to ensure consistent language describing services and approaches
  • Examining the intersections between Title IX and the Clery Act particularly as they pertain to disciplinary proceedings for student and employee cases

Please submit any questions regarding sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking policy requirements that you would like answered during the webinar to either Abigail Boyer at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@reyo1532034401ba1532034401 or Laura Egan at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@nage1532034401l1532034401 at least 24 hours before the start of the webinar.  We will do our best to address these questions during the webinar but might be unable to tackle all due to time constraints.

Clery Today: Clery Coordination

December 3, 2018 – 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

Although some still think of Clery Act requirements as an annual obligation via the release of an annual security report (ASR), the compilation of the ASR is just one task that summarizes and supplements ongoing Clery efforts throughout the year. This webinar will address concerns related to Clery coordination, including:

  • Who is or should be responsible for coordinating Clery Act requirements
  • Resources and strategies for compiling and promoting the annual security report
  • Ongoing multidisciplinary coordination of Clery efforts, including the development of a Clery Committee or working group and specific tasks for departments or teams

Please submit any questions regarding Clery Coordination you would like answered during the webinar to either Abigail Boyer at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@reyo1532034401ba1532034401 or Laura Egan at gro.r1532034401etnec1532034401yrelc1532034401@nage1532034401l1532034401 at least 24 hours before the start of the webinar.  We will do our best to address these questions during the webinar but might be unable to tackle all due to time constraints.
