Clery Center is excited to announce its newly updated Online Clery Act Training Seminar, including information on the intersections of the Clery Act with recently finalized Title IX regulations. In a world where virtual trainings are around every corner, Clery Center’s Online CATS (Clery Act Training Seminar) stands out by creating engaging learning opportunities through videos, quizzes, and an accompanying digital workbook. Each carefully crafted component of the new Online Clery Act Training Seminar brings the regulations to life and guides your plan for the future. Online CATS illuminates common challenges and promising practices in identifying and training campus security authorities, developing inclusive prevention, response, and disciplinary procedures for dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and the composition and distribution of the institution’s annual security report.

Through this flexible and engaging online training course, participants will be able to:

  • identify compliance requirements under the Clery Act,
  • review institutional policies and procedures, and
  • develop strategies for enhanced collaboration.​

Note: On October 9, 2020, the Department of Education rescinded the Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting replacing it with an Appendix to the Federal Student Aid Handbook. Find more information on our take on the rescission and its implications for the future by reading our blog posts. Currently, Online CATS does not address the Handbook rescission directly; however, its content is still applicable as this training covers the Clery Act statute and regulations themselves, which will still be enforced by the Department of Education. Additionally, the Handbook will still be used by the Department when conducting program reviews for years in which the Handbook was in place. We encourage you to view our FAQ video after registering and before beginning the training so you are briefed on the implications of the changes. Continue to look for further updates from us in the coming weeks.

Q: Do you share your materials for Title IX purposes?
A: As a way to support institutions in their efforts to comply with section 106.45 of the final Title IX Rules, Clery Center does provide its Title IX-related training materials as appropriate. Clery Center maintains sole discretion over what, if any, materials used during a training, workshop, or other event are applicable. You can read our guidelines in full here.
