Clery Partnerships Webinar Series - Increasing Equity in Sexual Misconduct Response Procedures

Organization(s): Clery Center

Oct 15, 2019
2:00pm – 3:30pm (1 hour, 30 minutes)
Time Zone: Eastern

Many of the Clery Act's requirements for an institution's response and disciplinary procedures for cases of dating and domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, are designed to increase equity. Requiring campuses to offer accommodations to victims of these crimes regardless of their participation in a disciplinary process as well as allowing complainants and respondents to be accompanied by an advisor of choice within disciplinary proceedings and requiring the simultaneous written notification of the outcome of such proceedings to both parties, help create more equitable processes. However, that does not mean that integrating any of these elements is static - re-evaluating what the requirements are asking for, in both the letter and spirit of the law, moves a campus further towards equity. Have you ever wondered the best way to inform about the availability of accommodations? Are you unsure of how to explain the role of advisor of choice or how to best place limits on how the role functions within a disciplinary proceeding? Are you unclear on what Clery means by the word "result" and how to best draft a rationale for a disciplinary decision? In this webinar, members of the Clery Center will be joined by colleagues from the Victim Rights Law Center in walking through promising practices to best implement these areas within the Clery Act in order to increase equity within response procedures.
