Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $334,000)

The purpose of this project is to create a national "Clery Act Regional Training Project" in order to better educate officials at institutions of higher education accross the country about their responsibilities for campus crime reporting and victims rights under the Act. The objectives of the project are to secure a cadre of national recognized experts to serve as the curriculum design team for this effort; design a comprehensive modular training curriculum, including trainer lesson plans, to train college/university policymakers about the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Act; conduct a series of nine 1 and 1/2 day regional training sessions; implement a two-pronged evaluation process to assess the efficacy of the training and the changes in policy and practices implemented as a result of the training; and to produce Jeanne Clery Act training materials based on the handbook published by the U.S. Department of Education, for national dissemination by the U.S. Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime.
