The Clery Act, as amended by the 2013 Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, requires that investigators (criminal, civil rights/Title IX/conduct) and hearing board members receive annual training on the issues related to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
As of 2015, the system offers course options for CSAs and REs that are also complaint with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
In 2013, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 amended the Clery Act, in part, to require that officials involved in the student conduct process receive “annual training on the issues related to dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking and on how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of victims and promotes accountability.” The National Association of Clery Compliance Officers and Professionals (NACCOP) has developed, in consultation with subject matter experts and student conduct administrators who are recognized as leaders in the field, an online VAWA Adjudicator Training Program specifically designed for institutional officials involved in the adjudication of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking offenses involving students (collectively, “sexual misconduct”).
