Under the Clery Act, institutions must publish an annual security report (ASR) each year by October 1, which contains Clery crime statistics and summaries of various areas of campus safety; some of these summaries must represent existing policies and procedures while others should describe a current practice or program.

This webinar will:

  • Review which statements within your ASR must be grounded in policy
  • Examine how to evaluate if the information within your ASR aligns with current practice on campus and Clery requirements
  • Discuss helpful strategies for developing policies for the required areas

This webinar will utilize the Composing Your ASR professional development tool in this year’s NCSAM toolkit. Please submit any questions you have about ASR components or policy statement requirements to Laura Egan at legan@clerycenter.org by September 10th in order for answers to be addressed during the webinar.
