(Core Competency #4: Organizational Engagement) Institutions today face larger fines, more investigations, voluminous guidance, and stricter enforcement related to the Clery Act. Even as the U.S. Department of Education (ED) has curtailed the breadth of Title IX investigations, the act’s enforcement process has quickened, and fines have risen steeply, more than doubling since the law was enacted. Historically, institutions viewed Clery Act compliance as a public safety function. While that perspective was never accurate, since the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization amendments to the act, such a myopic view makes compliance failures a certainty. Clery Act failings not only make headlines about larger schools like Penn State and the University of Montana, but also are reported for smaller institutions like Occidental College and the University of St. Thomas. This session will show participants that an interdisciplinary collaboration on Clery Act compliance across campus is essential. The session will cover the enforcement process used by ED, important gap identification strategies, and proven processes for enhancing compliance to make campuses safer.

As a result of participating in this session, each attendee will:

+ Understand, at a high level, what the Clery Act requires, where to find detailed guidance, and how ED identifies an institution for various types of reviews
+ Appreciate the increasing risks posed by Clery Act requirements, especially since the Violence Against Women Act
+ Acquire concrete strategies and actual tools to improve their institution’s compliance, thus reducing their institution’s risk
