PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS - JULY 21, 2020

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! Join us for this interactive one-day session.

 

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 Clery Compliance and DFSCA Officers - The Fundamentals of Complying with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act [DFSCA]
(8:30 am-12:00 pm)

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has developed a robust strategy for monitoring compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (DFSCA) since delegating this responsibility to the Office of Federal Student Aid in 2010.  Since that time, the Department has been tenaciously enforcing the law and issuing fines for noncompliance during general and campus security-focused reviews.  This workshop will provide a comprehensive review of each requirement of the DFSCA, including: an overview of the content that must be included in the institution’s Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program (DAAPP); requirements and strategies for distributing the required DAAPP annually to all students and all employees; requirements for conducting biennial reviews of the DAAPP’s effectiveness and preparing biennial review reports; and maintaining records substantiating DFSCA compliance.  Pertinent noncompliance findings originating from ED audits will be shared with attendees to highlight compliance shortfalls to be avoided. Participants in this workshop will be equipped with the knowledge necessary to conduct a self-study of institutional compliance efforts following the workshop.  Although this workshop is geared towards individuals who have been delegated responsibility for ensuring compliance with the DFSCA/Part 86 Regulations, any employee of an institution of higher education is welcome to attend this workshop, as many campuses have not identified a DFSCA/Part 86 compliance coordinator to oversee these functions, which means it is very likely institutions are not fully complying with the requirements of the law.

 

Pre-Con #4 for Clery Compliance Officers - Developing a Systematic Approach to Clery, HEOA, and DFSCAR Records Retention
(1:30 pm-4:30 pm)

This preconference workshop is designed to assist attendees in developing a comprehensive approach to maintaining records that will help document institutional compliance with the Clery Act (including the HEOA safety and security provisions) as well as the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA).  Learn what records to keep, why each record is important, how to keep them, and how long to maintain them.

 

Pre-Con #5 for All Attendees - An Inside View of Conducting a Clery Compliance Review by the U.S. Department of Education and by Independent Auditors (James Moore)
(1:30 pm-4:30 pm)

Have you ever wondered how the program review process looks from the perspective of an auditor within the U.S. Department of Education, or how the review process looks from the vantage point of an external, non-governmental reviewer when conducting independent audits of Clery Act compliance?  This session will provide an overview of the processes used when conducting ED-initiated program reviews and independent audits conducted by one of the leading consulting firms.  Insights into the process, how to prepare for it, and common mistakes to look out for in your compliance programs will be reviewed as part of this session.

 

Pre-Con #6 for NEW Clery Compliance Officers and NEW Title IX Coordinators Clery Act and Title IX 101

(1:30 pm-4:30 pm)

Are you new to one of these roles (i.e., assumed the role in the past 18 months)? This course will assist participants with understanding their individual roles and will focus on assisting participants in making a plan for success in their area of responsibility and will increase their knowledge of the intersections between the Clery Act and Title IX. 

 

2020 ADVANCED TRACK OPTION

Case Review of The Lauren McClusky Incident at the University of Utah

A NEW ADVANCED TRACK designed for attendees that have at least 2 years of experience classifying and counting crimes for Clery Act statistical reporting purposes.  The first Plenary Session for all conference attendees on Wednesday will be a review of lessons learned from an incident that occurred at the University of Utah. The session is called: Dating Violence and Stalking Turns to Murder on Campus—The Lauren McClusky Case. The Advanced Track session will include a Case Review where attendees will participate in reviewing the timeline and narrative information to determine the correct classification and count for each report and to practice adding entries to the Daily Crime Log. This session will provide practitioners with an opportunity to apply their knowledge to this actual incident that occurred at University of Utah. The Advanced Track sessions will be approximately 3 hours long.

 

NEW for 2020: Choose the Day You Attend the Advanced Track Session
Advanced Track Will be Offered on Wednesday OR Thursday – Same Content, Different Day – Pick One

 

The feature of the conference has become very popular and reached capacity in 2019, so the 2020 conference will feature two opportunities to sign up for the Advanced Track, thus we are repeating it to allow more conference attendees to participate. There will be Advanced Track #1 on Wednesday and Advanced Track #2 on Thursday—and they will both feature the same content. We ask that participants who are interested in attending sign up for either session 1 or session 2—not both sessions, as it is a repeated session (NOTE: They are both being held for the same amount of time, the Wednesday schedule has 3 shorter sessions and the Thursday session has 2 longer sessions, but the same total amount of time).

There is no additional charge to participate, but pre-registration is required. Conference attendees will have the option to pre-register for ONE of these advanced track sessions during the conference registration process.  Seating is limited, so sign up early!
