Oftentimes answering what seems to be a simple, direct question on the Clery Act can turn into a half hour discussion because of background and context that needs to be explained or clarified. This webinar provides a space for you to bring your campus partners together to learn more about the foundational language and concepts of Clery which will, in turn, help strengthen their understanding of the regulations and intersections with their day-to-day work.
The first half of the webinar will be an overview of Clery-specific terms like Clery Act crimes, CSAs, and Clery geography. The second half will be dedicated to answering frequently asked questions (FAQs) we have received from individuals on campuses about how to explain the Clery Act and its requirements to campus partners. Use this webinar as a professional development opportunity for you and those you work with on a regular basis on Clery compliance so that all can feel a little more fluent in “speaking Clery”.
Submit your FAQs about Clery compliance to Laura Egan at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 6th and they will be addressed throughout the webinar.
