Capitol Hill Day 2019: Members Invited to Participate

It is critical that the interests and concerns of campus public safety agencies inform the development of federal policies and legislation. The IACLEA Board of Directors and members of the Government Relations Committee will meet with members of Congress, their staff, and officials from federal executive branch agencies March 6–7, 2019, to provide essential insights on public safety issues that affect our campus communities. It is anticipated that reauthorization of the Higher Education Act will receive renewed attention during the 116th Congress, along with hazing, hate crimes, and study abroad safety issues.

During Capitol Hill Day 2018, IACLEA general members and the Board of Directors engaged in dozens of meaningful meetings with members of Congress and their staff to discuss gender violence on campus, Clery Act reporting requirements, and the Sean Collier Act. The Board also met with representatives from several key federal agencies to identify areas in which their missions and IACLEA priorities dovetail.

If you would like to be part of this outreach or have issues you would like carried forward, please contact Jeff Allison at jallison@iaclea.org or call (202) 618-8118.
