IACLEA and Clery Center have partnered to produce a series of Clery Act Technical Assistance Updates that will be available to IACLEA members at no charge.
Members will receive the updates via quarterly Webinars, which will be followed up by the distribution of a training document in written form. The trainings will augment information available via the helpdesk and will focus on nuanced questions and emerging issues that campus public safety officials identify. The updates will include information gathered in collaboration with IACLEA and Clery Center members to identify Clery Act compliance challenges facing institutions.
James Moore, Director of the Clery Act Compliance Division, Office of Federal Student Aid, U.S. Department of Education (DoED), will consult with IACLEA and Clery Center on the creation of the quarterly updates and will participate in the Webinars.
The first Webinar will be held September 27th from 1-2 PM EST. Presenters will address the five most common Clery compliance challenges; the format will be a moderated discussion with the Clery Center, Robert Mueck, Director of Public Safety at St. John's College, Maryland, and Jaimee Gilford, Director of Clery Compliance, University of Wisconsin - Madison.
"This partnership will help IACLEA support our members in improving the timeliness and thoroughness of their crime reporting," said Sue Riseling, IACLEA executive director. "Accurate reporting is an important responsibility for campus public safety agencies. Working directly with DoED and Clery Center will support our ongoing efforts to ensure reliable reporting."
"We're looking forward to combining the work of some of the most preeminent voices in campus safety to provide members with up-to-date and accurate information,” said Alison Kiss, executive director of Clery Center. "We believe that collaboration and partnerships like these enable practitioners to provide feedback and learn from multiple sources while working towards the idea that creating safe campuses is, in fact, an achievable goal."
