PAPSA Presents:

"VAWA Implementation and Annual Training"

August 6
ITT Technical Institute
220 West Germantown Pike
Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462


Recent federal changes made by the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) requires all Title IV schools to have policies prohibiting sexual misconduct as well as procedures for addressing claims of sexual misconduct on their campuses. The law further requires that on-campus investigations or hearings be conducted by officials who receive annual training on the issues related to sexual misconduct and how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of victims and promotes accountability. This program addresses issues associated with the implementation of VAWA policies and procedures, and provides the annual training required by VAWA.

Presenter: Chris DeLuca

(J.D. from University of Michigan Law School, B.S. in Accounting from University of Detroit) is an attorney and the founder of DeLuca Law, LLC. Chris has over 22 years of experience providing legal, financial and management services to business owners and proprietary schools. Prior to founding DeLuca Law LLC, Chris spent nearly nine years as the in-house legal counsel and CFO for a multi-state cosmetology school group. Chris also serves as a member of the American Association of Cosmetology Schools’ Government Relations Committee.

Session times:

Because of the importance of this topic and the time needed to fully train school officials on the law and their responsibilities to comply with it, each training session will last approximately three hours. To help make sure all PAPSA schools can participate in a training session, PAPSA will be offering three different opportunities to receive this training. The first two training opportunities will coincide with PAPSA’s annual conference in Pittsburgh. There will be a training session offered during the morning of July 23rd from 8:45 AM – 11:45 AM and another in the afternoon of July 23rd from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. Since this training will be offered at the conference, it is open to anybody who has paid to attend the conference, so there is no additional cost to attend one of these two sessions if you have already paid to attend the conference. For those who cannot attend the conference, PAPSA will have an additional training offered in the Eastern part of the state on August 6th from 1:00 – 4:00 PM at ITT Technical Institute – Plymouth Meeting campus. Cost for the training on August 6th will be $60 per person for members and $100 per person for non-members.
