Education Dept. to Convene Rule-Making Panel on Clery Act Changes

09/20/2013

The Chronicle of Higher Education.  September 18, 2013. The U.S. Department of Education plans to convene a negotiated rule-making committee to propose regulations for carrying out new campus-crime reporting requirements that were included in this year’s reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, according to a notice to appear in Thursday’s Federal Register.

President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Act into law in March, and it incorporated the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, which requires colleges to report incidents such as dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.

The notice states that, in addition, the department “may propose additional changes to clarify and update the existing campus safety and security reporting requirements.”
