rapid logo 400x400The State University of New York is pleased to announce RAPID (Responsible Authority Proficiency in Incident Disclosure) Training.  RAPID is a free, customizable and high quality training designed for colleges and universities to quickly, efficiently, and accurately train responsible authorities under the Clery Act, Title IX, and campus policy.

RAPID will be available for any institution across the country to download, customize, and use starting January 1, 2021.  And best of all, thanks to the support and partnership from Ramapo College and members of the team at SUNY, we can offer the system to any college or university at no cost.

Further, for SUNY Student Conduct Institute members, once the resource is completed and released, our staff will work with our member institutions to customize the RAPID training on their behalf. SCI members will be contacted with the opportunity to have a onetime initial customization at no cost in the order that they joined the SCI (initial date of institutional membership).

Colleges and universities across the country are working to educate employees about reporting crimes and violations, including Campus Security Authorities under the Clery Act and individuals with authority under Title IX, and we recognize that identifying, tracking, and training these professionals can be difficult (especially in an era when budgets are increasingly tight).  Despite these challenges, providing effective training to these professionals who are so key in bringing information forward is critical, so institutions can properly report and respond to crime, violence, and harassment.  RAPID offers a free, accurate, and customizable solution for institutions to use on their campus.

 

How Does It Work?

Institutions can register at no cost, download the RAPID files, and then customize using Articulate Storyline 3.  A user-guide will walk institutions through the process of replacing specific content with their own generated content.

The systems are designed to run as a course in any learning management system (such as BlackBoard, Canvas, BrightSpace, etc.). The system contains accurate, up to date information and may be customized for each institution. 

Institutions can then host the product on their own learning management system and distribute just like any course to staff who need to report back information, but using systems that any college or university can customize with their logos and information, all at no cost.

The content and systems are covered by a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. This means that institutions are free to use, customize, adapt, and re-share the content created by the working group, with proper attribution, for non-commercial purposes. This content may not be sold.
