Notification of Sex Offender
Under the provisions of the Wetterling Act/Megan's Law, the College is responsible for providing a way in which its members can be informed when a convicted sex offender has become part of the campus community, either through enrollment or employment. Subsection (d) of the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act amended the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) to permit educational institutions to disclose sex offender information received under the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) and community notification program.
When the College is notified by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) that a level 2 or level 3 sex offender is enrolled or employed at the campus, the campus community will be informed through the Geneseo 911 email notification system.
Notifications will be issued under the heading of "Sex Offender Notice", which will direct concerned individuals to contact the University Police Department's website for more information. The University Police Department's website will also provide a link to DCJS where more information will be available.
