Complying with the Clery Act is a complicated and high-stakes task. Add an unprecedented global pandemic into the mix and many of those charged with compiling Annual Security Reports (ASRs) are more overwhelmed than ever.
Due to the pandemic and the plethora of challenges that have come with it, last year’s deadline for submitting ASRs was extended from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31. Additionally, on March 8, President Joe Biden ordered the U.S. Department of Education to review the Trump administration’s changes to Title IX that significantly revised how K-12 schools and institutions of higher education handle sexual assault complaints.
Since sexual assault is considered a Clery crime, a review of Title IX and subsequent changes that are likely to come based on previous comments by President Biden will also likely affect how ASRs are compiled, what constitutes a Clery crime and how they are investigated.
Although the process of changing Title IX regulations could take years since Trump’s modifications were instituted through a formal rulemaking process, it can’t hurt to test your Clery knowledge with this scenario quiz.
Each scenario in this quiz was pulled from the 2016 Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting. Take a look around the handbook and you’ll find dozens of other scenarios and how — or even if — they should be counted as Clery crimes in an ASR.
The handbook also includes in-depth definitions of all crimes that fall under the Cley Act. Here’s an abbreviated list of some of those definitions.
