The Department of Criminal Justice Services, in collaboration with the International Association of College Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) and the Virginia Association of College Law Enforcement Administrators (VACLEA), is hosting a National Forum on Campus Sexual Assault. This Forum is designed to bring together experts in the field of campus sexual assault to discuss the latest research, policies, legal challenges, interdisciplinary cooperation, and reporting issues.
This forum has been structured to encourage a cross disciplinary approach to this complex campus and community public health issue. Leading national experts will discuss critical issues that impact the policies and procedures that must be in place for the proper management and investigation of sexual assaults reported to colleges and universities. Facilitated question and answer sessions will allow for participant interaction with panels of subject matter experts.
Attendees will have significant opportunities to share expertise and resources with colleagues from across the country. Suggested participants include: campus police and security personnel, municipal law enforcement with a connection to institutions of higher education, student life professionals, counseling and women’s center professionals, prosecutors, mental health professionals and other interested campus or community personnel.
