Pre-Con #1 for Clery Compliance Officers - — Constructing a Clery Compliant Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASFSR) (8:30 am - 5:00 pm)

Do you wonder if your Annual Security Report is in compliance? Do you hope you have met all required 115+ policy statements? Ever wish you had an expert to walk you through each policy statement to ensure they meet the requirements set forth in the Clery Act, especially in light of VAWA? Well, if so, this pre-conference boot camp 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 Boot Camp experience.

Pre-Con #2 for Clery Compliance Officers - An Inside View of Conducting a Clery Compliance Review by the U.S. Department of Education and by Independent Auditors (8:30 am – 11:30 am)

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 #3 for Clery Compliance Officers - Applying the Rules to Accurately Classify and Count Clery Crimes (8:30 am – 11:30 am)

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 #4 for Clery Compliance Officers - Developing Policies and Procedures to Support Clery Act Compliance Efforts: Creating a Framework for Administrative Capability (1:00 pm – 4:00 pm)

This session will walk practitioners through key policy topics that should be developed to demonstrate a systematic approach to compliance with the Clery Act. We will explore policy components that are necessary to establish administrative capability at your institution for each of the topics reviewed.

Pre-Con #5 for Clery Compliance Officers - How (NOT) to Write an Institutional Response to a Department of Education Program Review (1:00 pm – 4:00 pm)

The program review process serves the dual purpose of affording an institution an opportunity to respond to findings of violation before a final determination is reached by the Department and to allow the institution to develop a substantive plan to bring operations into compliance and remain compliant going forward. This opportunity can be seized, or squandered, by the quality, tone, and completeness of an institution’s written response to the Department’s Program Review Report (PRR). This session will share some strategies for developing a helpful written response and will share some additional insights as to what not to do when responding to the PRR.

Pre-Con #6 for NEW Clery Compliance Officers and NEW Title IX Coordinators - Clery Act and Title IX 101 (1:00 pm – 4:00 pm)

Are you new to one of these roles (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.


4:15 pm - 5:45 pm

CleryEdge is a powerful, integrated suite of software modules custom-designed with experts from NACCOP to help higher education institutions of all types lower campus risk and improve Clery Act compliance.

Development of a Clery Map

This session is a practical application approach to the development of a Clery Map. Attendees will be actively involved in analyzing their institution’s On-Campus and Public Property locations and experience a hands-on workshop designed to assist their efforts to develop a Clery Map. Small breakout groups will work together with the assistance of NACCOP moderators who will be available to offer guidance during the session. Attendees will need to bring a copy of their current map in addition to a checklist of other items that will be provided in advance of the session.

Advanced Track Will be Offered on Wednesday OR Thursday – Same Content, Different Day –
Pick One - Pre-Registration Required

In order to allow for more conference attendees to participate in Advanced Track, we are offering twice. 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, 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).

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!
