Campus safety has increased in priority in response to violent incidents and harmful student behaviors on campuses. Violence and threats cannot be completely eliminated by the actions of the school; however, the school must still do everything it can to reduce threats and occurrences of violence. Schools can take an important steps toward preventing violence by understanding the legal issues surrounding school safety and by adopting policies and procedures that account for these legal issues. These issues include concerns over sexual assault on campus (which requires an understanding of federal laws such as Title IX and the Clery Act), concerns over firearms on campus, search and seizure issues, and other constitutional considerations. Further, schools must be able to effectively assess threats on campus and address such threats in a legal manner.

Please join Rick Verstegen for this very important discussion regarding the legal aspects of addressing campus safety and practical solutions to minimize any liability related to addressing these issues.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Learn about obligations to prevent and report sexual assaults on campus, including a discussion related to proposed Title IX regulations
  • Discuss legal aspects of firearms on college campuses
  • Understand issues surrounding threats on campus, including conducting threat assessments, First Amendment issues, addressing mental health issues, and considering student discipline or restraining orders
  • Review confidentiality laws that may implicate such campus security issues, including navigating the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
