The U.S. Department of Education’s 3rd iteration of the Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting was released in June of 2016 and introduced various changes in guidance for institutions to implement to their Clery Act compliance programs. Notably, one of the more substantial changes in guidance applies to the topic of Clery Geography.
This white paper, the second in a three part series,  examines the more significant implications of the changes delivered in the 2016 handbook related to Clery Geography, and the subsequent clarifications provided by Department officials and the Campus Safety and Security Help Desk.
