Campus SaVE Act: What You Need to Know
Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy
Thursday, March 20, 2014, 1 - 2pm CDT
Last year federal lawmakers amended the Clery Act with the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, which requires colleges and universities to design and implement preventive and educational programs for students, faculty and staff. It goes into effect this March, and full compliance should be demonstrated by October. While everyone wants to improve safety on campuses, the idea of fulfilling compliance requirements can be daunting. This online seminar covers all the compliance basics. You will learn how to establish protocols for communicating with survivors and alleged assailants, appropriate methods for collecting evidence and documenting accusations, and investigation strategies appropriate for domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and other crimes. Learn more about the Campus SaVE Act: What You Need to Know webinar.
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) 2014 Town Hall Meetings Initiative
March - June 2014
The SAMHSA 2014 Town Hall Meetings initiative helps educate communities about underage drinking and engage them in its evidence-based prevention. SAMHSA seeks to partner with key constituency organizations, such as NASPA, The Network Addressing Collegiate Alcohol and Other Drug Issues, and existing statewide higher education coalitions, in identifying and engaging institutes of higher education (IHEs) and campus/community coalitions as Town Hall Meeting hosts. IHEs and campus/community coalitions recommended by a constituency organization will receive an invitation from SAMHSA to register online as event hosts. These events should be held between March and June 2014. The first 300 IHEs to register will be offered a $500 planning stipend from SAMHSA.

Institute for the Success of Students Veterans
April 4 - 6, 2014, Columbia, SC
Over the last three to five years colleges have been on a journey to become more veteran friendly. On campus many of us have engaged faculty and staff in new conversations about retention, learning, access, and educational issues that impact veterans. The emerging culture of creating veteran friendly campuses has transformed the way we approach students and many colleges are achieving noteworthy results. This Institute brings the myriad of conversations together to focus on best practices in many areas. Learn more about the Institute for the Success of Student Veterans
