Title IX Changes and the CLERY Act: How Colleges Can Understand the Changes and Ensure Safety

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

In September 2017, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued new guidance regarding Title IX. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos also announced in September that her department was concerned that previous guidance denied proper due process to those accused. In the guidance, OCR stated “when addressing allegations of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, institutions are subject to the Clery Act regulations as well as Title IX.”

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 amended the Clery Act to require institutions to compile statistics for incidents of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and to include certain policies, procedures, and programs pertaining to these incidents in the annual security reports. While it and Title IX have been in the news quite a bit over the last 6 years, it is important for educators to understand how the two work together and exactly how they are different.

In this webinar Expert Kent Seaver will bridge the gap between both pieces of legislation with the goal of expressing exactly how colleges and universities can create policies for ALL students that protect the rights of both survivors and the accused.

Session Highlights:

  • Examine the purposes of the CLERY Act and Title IX

  • Analyze recent changes in DOE Title IX guidance

  • Understand just how CLERY and Title IX are intertwined

  • Create a working model to balance the rights of the accuser an the accuser

  • Look at Best Practices for maintaining campus safety

Why You Should Attend:

Access to education is possibly the paramount factor facing today’s higher education community. Anything that hinders that access is a detriment to the educational path of a student. CLERY and Title IX are both mechanisms whereby the access to education is guaranteed to all students at colleges and universities. When questions arise that reflect light and sometimes darkness on those two pieces of legislation, it is important for all higher education stakeholders to understand what they can do to help their students. This webinar will assist in creating plans and models aimed at improving and ensuring access.
