Past Years' Webinars

Institutions rarely ask the Clery Center “When is the annual security report due?”, demonstrating that many institutions are focused on the timeliness of the publication of this very important document.  This webinar will address some of the other areas of publishing the ASR that are not as black and white so participants walk away feeling prepared as they conduct a once over of their report before October 1st.  We will address common challenges such as how to tackle separate campuses, ensure disciplinary procedures and processes are noted for both students and employees, addressing the “hows” as much as the “whats” within policy statements for timely warnings and emergency notifications, and more.

The ability to keep our students safe relies on system-wide commitment, infrastructure, appropriate staffing, and adequate funding. However, these foundational elements are often nonexistent or insufficient for supporting policies and programs that will effectively address the challenges that threaten our students’ safety and wellbeing. This webinar will provide insights and strategies around elevating the prioritization and impact of prevention, focusing predominantly on high-risk drinking and sexual assault. Presenters will share campus examples and data-driven approaches for garnering the buy-in and resources needed to keep our students safe and successful at college and beyond.

At a time of continuous growth for institutions, there comes a need to redefine Clery geographic areas and boundaries.  Do you struggle identifying your non campus properties? Do you want to know what public property is now reportable when you widen the circle of your contiguous campus?  Do you not understand what category your study abroad programs fall under? You are not alone!

As institutions work to understand how crime impacts their own campus, the accurate and prompt collection of crime statistics becomes a powerful and critical tool.  Join us for this webinar on September 21st focused on identifying, evaluating, and refining methods that ensure accurate collection of reports of Clery Act crimes from your campus security authorities and overall campus community.

This webinar, presented by the Clery Center in partnership with the VTV Family Outreach Foundation, will share insight regarding evidence information practices to reduce high-risk drinking and associated negative consequences.

A year into the implementation of the VAWA Amendments to the Clery Act, institutions are examining their work in primary prevention, awareness campaign creation, and disciplinary processes for the crimes of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking.  This webinar will address how these requirements intersect with Title IX, guiding practices for designing a user friendly and comprehensive written notification, tips for creating inclusive and representative bystander intervention programs, and revisiting what risk reduction means as defined in the Clery Act. Participants will walk away with tangible action items to address these frequent areas of concern and enhance their work against sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking.

Two federal laws, the Clery Act and Title IX, dictate campus response to incidents of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The requirements within each law complement each other; however, possible conflicts often arise in practice. This webinar will provide practical considerations for coordination and integration.
