Given the heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), it is more important than ever to make sure that your Title IX investigators and adjudicators are well trained on their obligations and on how to handle sexual misconduct matters.
Higher education institutions are legally required to provide specialized training on an annual basis to individuals responsible for investigating matters relating to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. And with new legal requirements making investigations and adjudications more complicated than ever, regular training for officials involved in the complaint process is essential for avoiding problems before and after a decision is rendered.
Join us for an all-day training for Title IX investigators and adjudicators to ensure that your institution is carrying out its responsibilities and satisfying its annual training requirements.
Not only will attendees learn about legal requirements for handling complaints of sexual misconduct, but they will receive practical guidance on how to navigate complex issues that arise during the complaint process. The session will also address the impact and challenges of trauma in investigating and adjudicating allegations of misconduct. Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.
