Getting to Know the Campus SaVE Act – A Rapid Response Webinar on the VAWA Reauthorization 

Co-sponsored by The NCHERM Group, the School and College Organization for Prevention Educators (SCOPE) and the Association for Title IX Administrators (ATIXA)

After years of legislative wrangling, Congress reauthorized a robust, expanded and much strengthened version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in late February.  President Obama signed VAWA into law in early March 2013. The reauthorized legislation includes extensive new statutory requirements regarding campus safety, training, crime reporting and prevention.  Is your campus ready?

What does the VAWA reauthorization entail? What does this mean for you and your campus? What does the reauthorization require? Is your campus in compliance? What does it need to do to get there?  You can trust The NCHERM Group for the critical information you need.

Included in the VAWA Reauthorization legislation is the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (Campus SaVE Act), whose Section 304 substantially amends the Higher Education Act of 1965 to impose SEVENTY (70) new provisions, disclosures and procedural protections.

Webinar Description

Join the experts from NCHERM Group, the School and College Organization for Prevention Educators (SCOPE) and the Association for Title IX Administrators (ATIXA) for an in-depth look and tutorial on what compliance looks like and what your campus will need to do to comply.  The presentation will dissect the campus-related VAWA requirements by focusing on the Act’s four key areas: Reporting, Policy, Prevention/Training, and Victim Services.

Reporting

  • What crimes need to be reported?
  • How and to whom do crimes need to be reported?

Policy

  • Providing prompt, thorough equitable and impartial investigations and disciplinary proceedings
  • Providing definitions of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual 
assault, and stalking
  • Properly defining consent pertaining to the above definitions

Prevention/Training

  • Who should be trained? How often?
  • What should training entail?
  • Bystander Intervention approaches

Victim Services

  • Victim notification of local and campus resources
  • Maintaining confidentiality
  • Victim notification of adjudicatory procedures
  • Prevention of retaliation

Webinar will also include Q&A with presenters. Purchasing options available including or excluding an invaluable Policy Template, and a newly updated version of the ATIXA Model Sexual Misconduct Policy designed to comply with the Campus SaVE Act requirements.
