The National Association of College and University Attorneys, in cooperation with ACE, is hosting a webinar May 31 on the Clery Act amendments in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and what they mean for Clery Act and Title IX compliance.
On March 7, 2013, President Obama signed the latest reauthorization of VAWA, expanding protections for victims of domestic and sexual abuse. Most notably for institutions of higher education, the bill amends the Clery Act. The revamped law requires colleges and universities to begin including in their annual security reports incidents of domestic violence, dating violence and stalking reported to campus security authorities or local police agencies.
The amendments also add crimes based on national origin and gender identity to the categories of crimes to be reported as “hate crimes,” and add numerous new policies and procedures that must be included in institutional annual security reports.
This webinar will discuss changes institutions must make to maintain compliance and address the many questions and ambiguities inherent in the amendments that institutions must cope with, pending guidance from the Department of Education.
