March 12, 2013 – Washington, DC – The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (Campus SaVE Act) recently signed into law represents the most sweeping reform of federal guidelines in two decades to affect colleges and universities handling of sexual misconduct. A free webinar presented by S. Daniel Carter, one of the advocates who helped develop the Act, will offer insights into how to comply with the law’s new expanded reporting, prevention, and victims’ rights standards to better prevent and respond to sex crimes on campus. College administrators, dean of students, campus safety directors, and others are invited to join the open training seminar on Thursday, March 21st, at 1:00 p.m. EST entitled “Implementing the New Campus SaVE Act.”
“The Campus SaVE Act reflects a landmark step forward in how colleges and universities will prevent and respond to sexual violence,” said S. Daniel Carter of the VTV Family Outreach Foundation. “It is designed to provide schools with the standards to better prevent and respond to what remains one of the most challenging issues in higher education.”
Ara H. Bagdasarian, CEO of Omnilert said, “S. Daniel Carter’s twenty years of experience advocating for the victims of sexual violence and having trained thousands of college and university officials yields a profoundly unique perspective on understanding these issues from both sides. His perspective will be extremely valuable in providing guidance that understands victims’ needs and institutional realities.”
President Obama signed the Campus SaVE Act, a compliment to Title IX and an update to the Jeanne Clery Act, into law on March 7th as part of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. The new law is designed to help institutions better protect their students and employees from sexual violence.
This free online seminar is sponsored by e2Campus and VTV Family Outreach Foundation. Registration is available at www.e2Campus.com/webinars.
