Critical Incident Database
The Critical Incident Database (CID) is a free tool for use by Forum member institutions in tracking critical incidents that occur while students are abroad. The CID serves as a method for tracking required information on incidents that should be reported in a member’s Annual Security Report as required by the Clery Act, including all incidents that meet the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) definitions. In addition, all incidents that should be reported to a Title IX officer are tagged.
The CID provides:
- An easy and convenient way to track what happens to your students while off campus (types of incidents, locations, etc.);
- On-line and accessible from anywhere
- Tablet, smart phone friendly
- Easy access to your own data; downloadable and printable reports (coming soon)

- A way to track critical incidents so that risk management decisions about education abroad programs can be made using appropriate data in context.
