NCSAM 2020: The Same, Yet Different

In the wake of COVID-19 and an advancing civil rights movement, institutions around the nation were reaffirming their commitments to campus safety. As communities wrestled with a new normal, the Clery Act remained the same— a call to action. In September 2020, Clery Center  highlighted how the Clery Act can serve as a guidepost, centering conversations around personal and campus safety following the historic events of 2020. Whether examining the increase in reports of intimate partner violence during lockdown, or the uptick in hate crimes and bias-related incidents, the Clery Act can serve as the barometer to examine campus climate. There is little doubt that 2020 will go down in history. Campus safety professionals nationwide joined us to explore the Clery Act’s continued relevance as we entered a fall semester that was the same, yet very different.
