Pre-Con #1 for Clery Compliance Officers—Constructing a Clery Compliant Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASFSR) (All-day: 8:30am-5:00pm)
Do you wonder if your Annual Security Report is in compliance? Do you hope you have met all 114+ required policy statements? Ever wish you had an expert to walk you through each policy statement to ensure yours meet the requirements set forth in the Clery Act, especially in light of VAWA? If so, this pre-conference workshop is for you!
This interactive one-day session will enable a limited number of attendees to focus on their specific Annual Security Report (ASR) and/or Annual Fire Safety Report (AFSR) while the instructors review policy statement requirements for these compliance documents. This will enable attendees to independently review the contents of their report(s) during the session to determine how their report(s) should be enhanced to achieve compliance. Attendees will receive instructions before the conference for how to identify the location of required policy statements in their report(s) prior to attending the session to maximize the workshop experience.
Pre-Con #2 for Clery Compliance Officers — Applying the Rules to Accurately Classify and Count Clery Crimes (8:30 am - 12:00 pm)
AN ADVANCED PRACTICAL APPLICATION SESSION designed for attendees that have at least 2 years of experience classifying and counting crimes for Clery Act statistical reporting purposes. This session includes a Case Review where attendees will participate in reviewing sample incident report narratives for complex cases to determine the correct classification and count for each report. Seating is limited, so sign up early!
Pre-Con #3 for Title IX Coordinators—Developing a Clery and VAWA Compliant Notices Letters for Title IX Complaints: A Workshop for Practitioners (9:00 am-11:30 am)
Recent guidance from the Office for Civil Rights advises schools that written notice must be provided to the respondent (the person who is alleged to have engaged in sex-based harassment) with enough specificity to respond to the allegations and lay out very particular items these “notice” documents must contain. The Clery Act also mandates that written letters of notice be given to both the complainant and respondent and require these notice documents be provided at very specific times in the sexual misconduct intake, investigation and resolution process. In light of these recommendations and requirements, this half-day session will teach attendees about how to construct notice documents that not only comply with Federal law and regulatory guidance, but also ensure due process protections for student and employee parties in sexual misconduct processes at institutions of higher education.
Pre-Con #4 for Clery Compliance Officers — A Primer on Developing Administrative Capability (1:30 pm-4:30 pm)
Institutions that participate in Title IV, HEA student financial aid programs must comply with the standards of administrative capability located at 34 C.F.R. § 668.16. These standards implore institutions to develop and implement fully-compliant Clery Act and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act programs that have adequate checks and balances in their system of internal controls. In this session, we will review the applicable standards of administrative capability and identify strategies for enhancing your institution’s administrative capability to comply with these foundational campus safety laws.
Pre-Con #5 for Clery Compliance Officers and Title IX Coordinators — Effectively Working with Communication and Public Relations Professionals on Campus Related to Ongoing Disclosures and Issues Surrounding Sexual Misconduct (1:30 pm - 4:30 pm)
Whoever said there is no such thing as bad press has never been involved in a Title IX incident on campus. Join us for this three-hour session and learn about the importance of developing strong partnerships and processes between your Title IX Office, Campus Police/Public Safety Department, and your Communication team(s) to mitigate risk and non-compliance with the Clery Act. At the end of this session, participants will understand how to develop their own communication protocols and strategies on communicating with various public constituencies (students, families, and the press).
Pre-Con #6 for Clery Compliance Officers—Recognizing, Assessing, and Responding To Bias-Related Incidents Under the Clery Act: An Interactive Workshop (1:30 pm-4:30 pm)
Reports of bias-related incidents are on the rise. Hate groups are actively recruiting college students. Student activism continues to grow while free speech continues to be challenged. In this complex environment marked by skepticism and sensitivity, how are you managing bias-related reports? Is your institution properly assessing these reports for potential hate crime classification and/or ongoing disclosure purposes? Join us as we explore these issues through the use of case studies and group discussion.
2019 ADVANCED TRACK OPTION
Writing Timely Warning Notices and Analyzing Your Timely Warning Notice Policy and ASR Policy Statements
An ADVANCED TRACK designed for attendees that want to enhance their knowledge and skills in developing Timely Warning Notice operating procedures and policies, policy statements for the Annual Security Report, and developing the contents of Timely Warning Notices. This session will include scenarios for attendees to react to and opportunities to practically apply what is learned to the development of Timely Warning Notices and the policies/procedures surrounding their development and distribution. The work that is completed in these three sessions will provide practitioners with an opportunity to use what they learn to analyze their institution’s Timely Warning Notice policy and the policy statements in their Annual Security Report to ensure they have addressed all required elements, as well as determining if those statements are consistent with their established policy.
(There is no additional charge to participate, but pre-registration is required ). Conference attendees will have the option to pre-register for this track during the conference registration process. Seating is limited, so sign up early! The new advanced track will be approximately 3 hours long and will be held during three concurrent session time blocks the afternoon of July 24th.
