Date and Time
In 2013, the reauthorized Violence Against Women Act incorporated the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE), effecting a comprehensive change to both the policy and statistical disclosure requirements of the Clery Act. Specifically,the SaVE Act added domestic violence, dating violence and stalking to the types of misconduct that need to be addressed bycolleges and universities, and imposed certain recordkeeping, procedural and educational requirements. These changes coincide with the work of the White House Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault, and efforts by the US Department of Education to refine guidance provided in a 2011 Dear Colleague Letter, and increasing activism on the nation’s campuses as students and employees mobilize to demand that institutions effectively deal with issues related to gender-based violence.
Items covered in this session will include:
- If it's not Title IX, why should I care?
- Codification of portions of the "Dear Colleague" Letter
- Addressing dating/domestic partner violence and stalking
- Will there be fines?
- DCL/Campus SaVE implications for civil actions
