Clery Act training seminar is Oct. 10-11 at K-State Olathe

Monday, Sept. 18, 2017

 

 

OLATHE — Kansas State University and the Clery Center are partnering to host an upcoming training about the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or Clery Act. The training is for employees at various universities throughout the Midwest who work with the federal law.

The Jeanne Clery Act Training Seminar is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 10 and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 11 at K-State Olathe, 22201 W. Innovation Drive, Olathe, Kansas. The training addresses Title IX and Clery Act intersections, compliance challenges, amendments to the Violence Against Women Act and more.

"Safety is a shared responsibility and I have no doubt that the information shared during the Clery Act Training Seminar will provide individuals with the tools necessary to meet obligations required by the law," said Sarah Barrett, Clery Act compliance coordinator for Kansas State University. "We look forward to hosting this and other trainings in the future, as we continue the work of advancing safety on our respective campuses."

The Clery Act is a federal law that requires universities to annually compile and disclose data about crimes and fires that have occurred on their campuses in the previous calendar year, as well as security policies and procedures that protect the community and information on the handling of threats, emergencies and dangerous situations. The law, which was established in 1990, applies to most public and private universities and is tied to various types of federal funding, including student financial aid.

Registration for the two-day training seminar is $475 per person. Discounts are offered for groups of two and more. Registration is due by Sept. 29.
