MCASA’s Virtual Training Series for colleges and universities addresses sexual violence prevention and response on campus, with a focus on survivor-centered responses to reports of sexual violence and sexual assault prevention on campus. Join us on November 10th from 2-3:30 pm ET for the third session of our series featuring training from MCASA's School Policy Senior Attorney on the new importance of the Clery Act in responding to sexual violence on and off campus.
This two-section training is geared toward education professionals and advocates who work with students. Part one of the training explores the VAWA Amendments to the Clery Act, which require schools to offer a prompt and equitable process for investigating sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence complaints. Even when Title IX does not apply because of the location of the assault, students still have rights under Clery. The second part of the training explores the legal requirements and best practices for schools providing supportive measures to student survivors, regardless of whether they ask for a formal investigation into their assaults. Supportive measures are essential to keep survivors safe, protect their emotional wellbeing, and help them stay in school.
