Title IX and Clery procedures are complex and ambiguous for all parties involved, but the importance of maintaining an institutional culture that upholds these laws cannot be overstated. Following Clery legislation should not stop at mere compliance either. In this episode, Courtney talks with Jody Shipper, a nationally recognized subject-matter expert in Title IX and related fields, about her approach in working with universities and colleges in Title IX compliance.
They talk about the intersection of Clery and Title IX, and common Clery mistakes Jody sees in the work she does with clients. Jody talks about the complexities around filing timely reports, typical daily and yearly duties of logging data, and ways schools can get better at their Annual Service Reports. Jody sets the benchmark where it should be as far as Title IX and Clery procedures, so make sure you learn all you can from her in this episode.
Key Points From This Episode:
“People bandy around this phrase, ‘A culture of compliance.’ That’s a nice way to put it, that we have an institution where everyone will comply with all the rules. I always think of it as a baseline. Of course you have to do that piece, but can we do better?” — @JodyShipper [0:15:51]
“I think it’s really important to make clear somewhere in that timely warning that no one is responsible for being the victim of a crime. You didn’t choose to be the victim of that crime.” — @JodyShipper [0:28:54]
“Once you’ve pulled your ASR together you’re not done. You need to publish it. You need to send it out to people in your community and you also need to submit it to the department of education.” — @JodyShipper [0:28:54]
