Clery Act Training Seminar (CATS)

The Clery Act Training Seminar (CATS) addresses all aspects of Clery compliance, including identifying individuals required to report under the Clery Act, identifying Clery Act geography, counting and classifying crimes, ongoing disclosures such as timely warnings and emergency notification, intersections between the Clery Act and Title IX, and putting together the annual security report.

This training uses the Clery Act statute and regulations, analysis of Department of Education program review findings and current guidance from the Department as key sources of information for addressing Clery Act requirements implementation. Each session incorporates application-based activities so participants can develop, or build upon, the necessary skills to be successful in their individual roles or as part of a multidisciplinary team. Participants will review recorded pre-work for Days 2, 3, and 4 in order to prioritize real-time interaction and engagement with the instructor for the scheduled virtual, live sessions.

Annual Security Report Workshop

This workshop will provide information and tools to use to analyze the institution’s annual security report (ASR) and its compliance with Clery Act requirements. We will address commonly misunderstood policy statement areas and guide attendees through engaging campus partners in crafting accurate policy and procedure descriptions for their respective areas. First, participants will review the required components of an ASR including elements necessary if an institution has on-campus student housing. Then participants will workshop ASRs through using Clery Center’s ASR checklist to evaluate if their policy statements contain all of the required elements. Clery Center instructors will facilitate small and large group discussion to identify strategies for making needed changes.

Length: 3 hours

Campus Security Authority Workshop

Despite the 2020 rescission and replacement of the Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting, campus security authorities (CSAs) still exist and play a pivotal role on campus.  Use this workshop to refresh participants’ understanding of who CSAs are and what their responsibilities entail as well as to strategize how to apply the broader guidance within the Clery Act Appendix to identifying roles as CSAs. Through discussing various challenges ranging from receiving delayed reports, to ensuring CSAs know how and what information to report, to conducting engaging trainings, participants will learn how to enhance CSA identification and training skills.

Length: 2 hours
