Clery Act compliance is increasingly complex for campus administrators, particularly as institutions continue to grow their enrollments and expand their physical campus footprint. Even institutions with the best of intentions and regular training can mis-report incidents, which can result in costly civil penalties, intense negative publicity, and suspension from federal aid programs. Now is the time to reassess whether your institution is meeting its regulatory requirements.

Join us online for a comprehensive look at how to meet your ongoing Clery obligations. With an eye on the updated version of “The Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting” and its revised guidelines, you will learn about:

  • Annual report requirements, including filing
  • Clery crime classification definitions and incident tabulation
  • Daily crime log needs
  • Dealing with multi-campus and quasi-campus issues
  • Creating a compliance team and addressing a program review
  • Using Department of Education resources to stay out of trouble

This session will also include case study examples that will help you apply the content directly to your institution. Our expert instructor will answer your questions directly throughout the session. To bring everyone on your team up to speed, upon registration you will receive a podcast recording that provides foundational information about the Clery Act.
