VAWA Compliance Update: Summer 2015 from trainED

Live Webcast


Presented by: trainED

Is your institution on track to comply with the new requirements of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) regulations? VAWA and the final rule are intended to require institutions to more effectively address, and ultimately reduce, sexual violence on college campuses, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.  The final regulations will become effective July 1, 2015. 

The final rule details additional requirements to ensure that institutions provide more complete information to their students, better inform and protect victims, and clarify the process for collecting and reporting crime statistics in annual security reports. The rule also provides new requirements relating to the complaint process, addressing issues such as participation of attorneys, parties’ access to the information that will be used in the decision-making process, and required content for notices of determination.

Join us for a 60-minute training and 30-minute Q&A on how your institution will need to update its policies and practices to reach compliance by the July 1 deadline.

Issues impacted by the new regulations include:

  • Participation by attorneys in the complaint process
  • Mandatory sharing of information with the parties
  • Required content for determination notices
  • Prevention and awareness programs
  • Changes to Clery Act crime statistics
